    Default Massey Harris or Massy Ferguson ?

    I just purchased a backhoe, the seller stated it was a Massey Harris approx. 1930- 1935 model, it has Perkins four cylinder diesel engine, 4 speed transmission. Possible a high/low range, power steering

    To start the backhoe, I push on a lever on the left side of dash and push on the push button. ( no key )

    The backhoe runs good, having a hard time finding brake shoes or reline kits.

    The only info. is a tag which reads Major 50.. Need help

    Sounds correct name wise but I thought they were post WWII

    Massey-Harris Becomes Massey-Ferguson during the 1950s

    Seems the company was formed in 1891 so i was wrong.

    It was Massey-Harris, then Ferguson came in and it was Massey-Harris-Ferguson then finally changed when Harris left.So, now we
    have Massey Ferguson.

    I believe this tractor is a Fordson Major E1ADKN from around 1952. I believe they were only sold new in the U.K.

    Definately a fordson major/super major/power major if it is one of the first two then it will have drum brakes and if it is the latter it wil have disc brakes, all are just in front of the axle trumpets. If you have a look on the bare co or sparex sites you should find what you are looking for. It is a four cyl fordson engine not a perkins.
