The "D" doesn't really mean anything. There are TEA, TEB, TEC, TED, TEF, etc. all with slightly different features.

The TED20 (which is what I have) is a "vapourising fuel" model - very similar to the TEA20 but less powerful and designed to run on less expensive fuel in the early 50s.

A TED20 had a 2-part fuel tank. The small part was for normal petrol to get the tractor started and up to temperature. The operator would then switch over to the main fuel tank which had fuel that would only burn well at high heat. To assist with that, the TED20 had a heat shield around the manifold.

There are 20 variations of the TE type tractor, each one has a prefix letter to say just what it is. A is Gasoline, D is Vaporising Oil, B would be a Continental Engined Narrow, F would be a standard width Agricultural Diesel and so on. Then there are Industrial models and Vineyard and Narrow versions of the Agricultural tractors and they all have a different prefix letter so everyone would know what the tractor model actually is. In the USA only 2 models TO20 and TO30, there was a TOD listed but no-one has seen one that I know....Joghn(UK)...fergusontractors@hotmail.com
