Hi, just purchased a 1949 TEA20 Fergie, dont have a need for it other than it needs some TLC and I dont have a project ongoing !
Need some tyres front and rear if anyone has a set ?
Currently it is 6v - should I convert to 12v ? what the general opinion ? Need a 6v coil to get it going first anyway.
Solid tractor - needs some paint - or should I leave as is ? all these decision to make !
right - off to read some forums !

How do Beastieboy.

Can't help with the tyres but keep your eye on eBay and some will turn up before long. If it was mine I'd keep it 6 volts, if it's not working well then there's something wrong and you'd only have the same problem if it was 12 volt. I leave the paint as it is unless you intend stripping the whole tractor and painting the lot.

How about some photos.

Welcome to the forum Steve. I have 2 tractors, one 6 volt and one converted to 12 volt. I would leave it as a 6 volt too.

Photos would help us comment on the paint. But, unless you want to take it to shows, only paint the bits where the rust is taking over and you need to slow it down.
