Default Covid induced Ferguson TE20

I had no intention of building a tractor this winter but because some friends got bored with nothing to do and a big, well equipped shop to do nothing in, I, good heartedly, relieved their problem. [pic 1] is the tractor, a Ferguson TE20, that I was going to eventually get around to fixing up. [pic2] was going to be the parts tractor. The parts tractor was closer to the shop, and the motor, [under the blue tarp in the snow] was also closer to the shop so I dug it out and took it to the friends' place. They whipped it into shape. Every once in a while I had to find some parts for them, like a straight oil pan, [pics 3 and 4], and a starter. Well, I brought it home, rebuilt and test-run. [pics five and six].
Sorry about the red tractor, that's not the picture I chose, but it's really rare. That is a 1934 Massey-Harris General Purpose.

Here is the picture of the Ferguson I was going to fix up. It was complete, but had a broken bellhousing which is integral with the transmission.
Here are some more pictures of the Massey-Harris.

That Massey is a really different looking critter, pretty bright colors.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

I thought 4WD was a far more modern thing. What year is the GP, Mac?

Doc, they only made these tractors from 1930 to 1934, and I think this one is a '33 or '34.
Dozer, I agree it is pretty bright, but I don't think it came that way from the factory.
OI, steel wheels have some advantages, but also some disadvantages. A few years ago our MLA, [provincial member of parliament] drove this tractor in a parade we had and cursed the quality of ride, loudly. But we voted him in again anyway.
The two guys at this farm shop are really good fabricators and work well together.
