I have also found out that the ford 5000 1962-1964 was imported from Dagenham, England and has the same engine as the Super Major. 3.6 liter and same bore and stroke.

I don't know if any real changes were made from the new major. This could be in the injection pump or metering, but the compression ratio is the same for all three new major, power major, and super major. For some reason some books don't list the new major engine. The older major had either an all fuel four or a 6 cylinder modified Perkins. I cannot find much about either except bore and stroke. The major (1945-1952) is listed as having 4.4 liter with low compression head. 4.125 inch bore and 5 inch stroke. The Perkins is listed as 3.5 inch bore and 5 inch stroke, but it is 6 cylinder at 4.7 liters.

The best thing to do is to measure the bore and check the stroke on yours to make sure you don't have the older model. The horse power and pto power were checked at different rpms and there was no pdf file for the 'new major' to compare it to the Nebraska tests run on the power major and super major. The tests I saw on the nm and sm showed the same pto power.

The Fordson, 1945-52 is the E27N. It's the old 1917 flathead engine with some improvements.
New Major has overhead valves.
