Does anyone know the history of
>our engines in Ferguson tractors? Larry Young
I am far from an expert in this, but I think that the Ferguson 20s that were
sold on this side of the Big Pond had OHV Continentals. The story goes that
Sir John Black copied the Continental to make the Standard engines equipping
the Ferguson 20s sold Over There.
The Continental and the Standard look somewhat similar, the pushrod tubes
in the head being noticably the same. The starter is on the other side and
there are other differences.
I once worked on my ex-future-father-in-law's Fergie and the engine looked
familiar. It was a Continental.
I took a TR3 block to a machine shop and they asked, "What kind of tractor
is this from?". The TR3 owner started to say, "It's from a British sports
car... ", and I kicked him in ther shin to shut him up.
