Am located in north western Ontario, Canada I have a ford super major with sherman backhoe and fromt loader, a super tractor. I had the injector worked on and they thouhgt I was missing a part off the injector. the housing and external fuel switch I thought that it was modified anyone know about this I have had a 1953 Fordson major diesel and have used it to cut 5 acres of grass with gang mowers every week for the last 11 years and are just now having the injectors refurbished. It starts first time every time and is a brilliant tractor.
The correct and original colour for the wheels is red not orange.
I live in Australia and own a 1957 English Fordson complete with a decompression lever and another two wrecks. If anyone would like a photo to check the original tyre rim colour email me on normon at and I will get in touch. I may be interested in selling tractor for parts if I cannot find replacment motor.
Cheers Norm I have a Fordson Major that I use to work aroung the place with and I need a couple of parts. I have just purchased a Fordson Major w/ hydraulic bucket on front and was told it was a Major 30.
I would like to restore her to a more original state if possible but find it hard to get some parts. And by the way..the guy likes his rims silver, then go for it. I don't know much about them but it drove fine for the 5 miles to my home.
Any sights that I can visit or persons with info would be appreciated. If nescessary however, it is best to have an assistant. over, and when it begins to fire pull down on lever for full compression and eng should start.
I do intend to make the next tractor show in my area(June)since I've never seen another Fordson in my area so anything to make it a show winner would be appreciated! I HAVE A FORDSON MAJOR DIESEL BELIEVED TO BE OF EARLY-MID 1950s VINTAGE . Whoever is working the lever should have some common sense so they don't stick they're hand in the fan or something stupid like that.
I have just retired her as she is in need of repair/restoration.
Any info regarding shop manuals, restoration advice ect...would be appreciated.
It needed a starter and 3 light bulbs, and it started up as sweet as anything.
There is no rust or damage to it whatsoever it also has a front loading bucket.
THIS IS EQUIPTED WITH 38 " RUBBER ON THE REAR ,16 RIBBED ON THE FRONT . Also in my experience, when eng is tuned right, it will knock and ping and shake and lope up and down on the governor when idling, I've found that if they idle smoothly, they will be hard to start and won't have full power [something to do with timing].
