Bit of confusion above -

Ferguson were associated with Triumph, and the engine used the wet sleeve
engine components.

There was a Nuffield tractor that probably used components from the parent
firm (along with MG). There was also a BMC tractor that may have been a
development from the Nuffield.

Fordson were associated with Ford. The current items are 'Ford' tractors.

And then there were the  David Brown tractors, (that also made the Aston

(and Ferrari make tractors, as do Lamborgini)
