The British importer of Schindler 4wd in the 70's was Arthur Battelle who was at that time employed as Roadless Service Manager !!! Yes - in direct competition to his full time employer.

The company was called Farm Tractor Drives, besides importing the axles for sale, they also converted a limited number of Ford 5000 tractors to 6 cylinder Ford engines. Some were sold in 2wd and some with Schindler 4wd axles. Painted blue with yellow wheels. Have you ever heard of or seen them?

J J Thomas in Britain were also converting Ford 5000's into 6 cylinders, some were fitted with Schindler 4wd axles.

Hello KFD68 , There is very little info here in the USA about Schindlers , all that I have found has come from Canada but I do remember Farm Tractor Drives . The Schindler kit came out of a Ford 5000 with the original 4 cylinder engine , I did not know there were installing 6 cylinder engines in them with four wheel drive . I removed it because one side split the steering knuckle where it turns on the bearings , I just recently found another broken kit but have not been able to come to an agreement on the price to purchase it so I can fix one of them and then reinstall it into another Ford 5000 . Thanks Tony
