Hi
I have a Fordson Major with which I restored 20years ago and has so far not let me down. However the engine has blown this haymaking.
I have also the 6 cylinder engine from a Ford D series truck which I am trying to replace it with.
Today offered it up to the tractor but it is sitting upright and the Ford D is designed to sit sloping, is this a problem?

Has anyone done a similar job themselves and can offer any help?
many thanks
pete

Thanks for the reply Dell.
Its a diesel engine and so no carb. Fitted it yesterday and gather that as long as it is kept topped up the sump should be ok tilted? Gonna give it a go and will let you know how i get on, thanks again

Pete.......surprizingly enuff, the engine don't care level or slanted, but the carb float does. The carb float must be level. The intake manifold on a slanted engines is usually "wedge-shaped" to level the carb for the float to work correctly. Sometimes you can find "industrial" manifolds that are level. Mor'n'likely, you will need the services of a machine shop to de-wedge or level yer carb manifold base. .......Dell
