    You're probably right, Bob. Same shade of blue or something [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

    FWIW I found this on a box containing a waterpump rebuild kit for a 3 cylinder Ford 2000:
    "Ford Tractor Operations
    Ford Motor Company Ltd., Basildon, Essex, England"

    Anyone know of a tractor plant, Leyland or Ford, in Basildon?

    Leylands were later bought by the Marshal company and were produced under that name for a while. Never ford that Im aware of.

    Now with ford/fordsons.. there were many english made fords.. and lovely lucas electronics to go with it.

    I'm not up on the british side of ford.. so I can't help you with manufacturing facilities.. except to say that I've never seen leyland info come up on my ford parts searches.. even when I was looking for british fordson parts for a super major, and a fordson dexta..

    My father in law ran a landscaping business and bought a 344 new in the early 70s, 55hp 4 cylinder . he just sold it to one of my friends recently ,the hour meter ran to over 9000 and its oil stays a lot cleaner than my Ford 3000 it also starts much better in the winter and runs quieter to it also had 5 forward gears and hi /lo so 10 forward 2 reverse. That tractor is every bit the equal ( in performance of JD or Ford) in its size and vintage jmo
    Thought the engine was Perkins all these years but think its marked British Motor Co.
    the Ford 2=3000s were co designed with help from Perkins from what I read in History of Ford tractors iirc

    They were generally good tractors, with many of them still hard at work. They were never as popular as Ford or IH but still good workhorses.
