Norfolk Fergie !

Postby john » Sun Apr 15, 2018 4:33 pm

Hello all at the Fergie forum.

I have used/driven/sat on Fergie's on and off since the 60's, had a diesel version that I bought for my son and I to mess about with 15 years or more ago but unfortunately it seized not long after ! so gave it away as spares !

Now have recently bought a very good TED TVO that reminds me so much of one I used to sit on with my father.
It runs a tad lumpy on tick over when on TVO but for me that's part of the appeal I just love that noise !
When we researched our tractors serial number it was one of 225 made that day ! that's a whole load of tractors even on todays standards, not sure if any of the worlds modern tractor manufacturers will be producing those numbers !?

I've asked for help on sourcing some minor parts on the restoration page, if anyone can help !?

Thanks
John (Norfolk, recently)

Yes, in the past there were ferries, but since 2011 we are connected to the mainland by tunnels.

I am around Grunt. I’ve spent a few weeks by my sisters side until she passed away on Saturday. Have to go to the registry office tomorrow :cry: no age to be taken by cancer at 33. She was diagnosed at 27.

What bits did you require John? I may be able to help.
