A friend of mine has a Fordson Major Diesel with Mechanical Front wheel drive. Is this an extremely rare tractor?

If it has small front wheels and front modified axle off GMC 6x6 WW2 truck, spacer at gearbox and single drive shaft down left side of tractor it is a Roadless conversion.

If it has 4 equel sized wheels, and drive shafts off each rear axle housing then its a County.

Production figures and dates are available in Britain - you can also look on the FORDSON PAGES FORUM in the internet. These guys specialise in Ford & Fordson tractor topics.

It depends what you mean by 'mechanial front wheel drive'. A great many 4 wheel drive FMDs were produced. (In fact they were conversions by County and Roadless and there could well have been some others converted locally) but not that many as an overall percentage of the total manufacturing run. As far as actual figures go I doubt if anyone really knows. MTF
