Are there any transmissions for Fergusons such as the Sherman hi/lo units such as were available for the Ford N series machines? I haven't seen anything similar mentioned for the Fergies.

No blanks... If using the Ford version, there are patterns available (call John Smith)... If you are using the Ferguson version, the hole is in a slightly different place and I think the the Ford pattern is useless... You will have to determine where to cut... I can't help but maybe others can.. Jim

Thanks for all the info guys, and John Smith's site is a fascinating read. A question remains.

For those transmissions like the Sherman which fit inside the main tractor casing, are there blanks in the casting one punches out for the lever or do you have to actually drill a hole "freehand" as it were?

The Sherman Brothers and Hupp made a high low transmission gearbox. Ferguson also made one, but they were only offered for the TE's.

It seems to me that the easiest thing to do would be to move up to a TO-35, MF-35, or F40. In the current issue of Ferguson Furrows there are a few running TO-35"s and F40"s for sale.

A version of the Sherman Hi/Lo was made specifically for the Ferguson. And the same Sherman for the Ford 8N will also work in a Ferguson if you give up the gear shift start function. However, if you want to retain the gear shift start feature of the Ferguson, you must have the Ferguson version. The only difference is the top casting which moves the shift lever and makes room for the gear shift starting components. Search for sherman here.. also John Smith at the 8N board can probably help.

Ferguson produced an optional reduction gear box which fitted between the existing gear box and the diff and "stretched" the tractor around six inches. John (UK) will have the details.

They are rare and expensive. I can't find one for sale in Australia.

The Howard reduction box has problems not the least of which are no parts availability! Not one of the better Aussie inventions.

I have a "50 TO-20 with a Howard gear reducer and a Hupp Hi/Lo. The Hupp is equivelant to the Sherman. Only a bit more rare and spendy.
