Does anyone know what the large "K" embossed on the right side of my TEA20 engine block means?

Glad you received the CD and found it useful!

I forget what I put on it now, but I know it contained the full Service Manual and Tractor Instruction Book plus a few useful photos, documents odds and ends for the TEA20 series.

Easy to make - anyone else wants one please send me an email with your postal address.

The "K" engine - is it the 85mm standard motor in the tea20?
If so can i secure a copy of the cd?
My postal address is 60 Broos Rd, Oakville NSW 2765

TS. Did you receive the CD and was it useful?


Yes, thanks Bob. I have just started going through all the info in there. The blow-apart pictures are particularly useful. I always like to be able to visualise what I'm up against. Also the service instruction book is very interesting.

It will take me some time to sift through all this! Much appreciated.

Doc

Sorry, been to Brisbane for three days and out of contact.

"There are other smaller numbers below it."

I now know where your "K" is - no, nothing similar embossed onto my engine block except what I noted above, which I believe is a casting date.

Yes, all engravings are of interest, IMHO.

So far I haven't found anyone else who has a date engraved on their engine block, as my TED20 has.

But I did find "1 7 3" embossed on the block above the generator mount, which I'm tipping is the casting date of 1 July 1953, seeing as my diff housing is dated "6 7 3" (6 July 1953) and I know the tractor production date is 10 July 1953!

It stands out. It is below the the manifolds. If you have to look then you don't have one. The "K" is about 30-40mm and in clear view not hidden behind anything. There are other smaller numbers below it.

I just thought it was something of interest to bring up.

It will be something to do with the casting maker nothing to do with production. There are very often various marks on these castings as they were made out by various suppliers, while it would mean something to them it doesn't mean anything to tractor production. The only number you ever need to be concerned with is the engine serial number that is located, stamped into the block, between the oil filler and the HT Coil mounting. As a rough guide, anything numbers cast into a housing don't mean anything other than to the original supplier, you will sometimes see the date cast into various parts and that is useful to date the Tractor, but it is when the actual part was cast, not when the Tractor was made.....John
