How you goin with that ford-Ferguson Tony? Or should I say Ferguson-Ford as the Ferguson bit is at the front this time?
If you look at the mounting points for the lower link arms on an early TE there are mounting brackets held in place with two 11/16th head nuts. On the later 12 volt tractor, (which the front half of yours is!) the mounting points are a plain stud just like on the 35/40 etc . The later tractor also had a larger diff and different trumpet housings to fit over the larger hole in the trans housing. I assume the TO30 also had these improvements?. British tractors had the larger drum brakes from the very start, similar to the 35/40 but early tractors used a 'kidney cam' system, later tractors had the floating cam with the oval hole in the back plate. The good news is.....most wreckers yards still have a lot of discarded arst ends lying around as not many ever need these casings. And I think you know where there is a blue one from some of your previous postings.
OR......You could paint the whole thing in your favourite Rustoleum grey without the yeller and blue bits and take it to shows and tell everyone that it was a top secret British invention, that they were testing in utmost secrecy in the wild west, and then abandoned and you just managed to find it and bring it back to life????????
By the way the throttle lever is meant to be bent.....only early TEAs had straight levers!

The tractor in the photograph is an early 12 volt and still has the bracket on the lower lift arm mountings. I think this changed at tractor number 200,000? But Iwill ask on our forum for ya!

If I had bought the even better TO20 next to this one...for the same price... none of you would be able to pick on me woodya? I always had a flair for the imported and exotic...cars, beers, wine, women...tractors??? and usually come out broke and disappointed... me mum told me I'll never learn.... she was sooo right.... More pics Sam, of the casting numbers and lift cover this time... as I blew this up, I see what looks like cast tags in the same spot as mine near the port hole, and the cover is close at this angle...why don't you put this one in your suitcase and bring it to the next show for us??? Where'd you get the spiffy top link with all the notches? The FENA show in Warren Ohio by any chance? !!!! You got a magic idea ther Same! I'll paint the starboard side Rustoleum smoke grey, and the port side Ford grey and vermillion... magic idea! Where have I seen something like that before?? Hey maybe mine will be Miss December 2015??
Hopefully by this evening I'll have a change to dig further, this weekend trying to put it in a better spot before we get snowed in or something... I should collect exotic tropical weather.. that'll be my next hobby!!!

Where's the pics Tony? That top link is required for the Ferguson A-EO mowers, the drag type disc and some other implements. I have one myself. Remove the dipstick cover and look inside. Your TEA should have that aluminum bridge on the control fork like the TO-30. At least that's what the Internet is saying. Also if you can see the lift cylinder, the 9N cylinder is smooth and has no reinforcement ridges where the bolts go thru to the top cover. All the Ferguson ones I have seen are reinforced. I can take a pic of the two style of lift cylinders side by side if you want. That should help you narrow down what top cover you have. If you see no bridge and a smooth cylinder then it's an N cover more than likely. The pump won't matter. The 9N and Ferguson pumps are pretty much identical. The 9N lift cover will work also it just may not have the marks that the TEA originally did.

I already posted or emailed you all the views worth taking pictures of Jason, without the [HF]...what else is there to focus the camera on? When it all comes apart, on the ground, on a sunny day, we'll try again. And noooo... I got enough on my plate I don't need a gear reduction anything that looks like that...

Your top cover is different than this TEA's cover isn't it? Don't you wish you had the epicyclic reduction box that this one does?

No pics today Jason, not enough daylight to get stuff done nevermine pointless photography... but... in the process of moving... pushing , not starting- the MF35 with the standard 23C... the same non [HF] marked parts on the TEA are also not marked on the - I presume UK made 35.. The arsend is no help in evidence to the other, it has the 2 stage clutch etc.. and it is now part of the 202.. which I wasn't in the mood to uncover today... didn't get above freezing at all today... winter's here for good...
