I did you one better, OI, I made my computer step back and take a deep breath, so that would be ohm ohm. This morning when I started it up again, it worked alright so here are the pictures. We had the sandblaster and his wife over last night for supper and he checked out his paint and my handiwork and was impressed. He had done about 2/3s of the tractor.
Also this morning, Mrs. Mac went to the post office and got my package from Coventry, England, which contained my new voltage regulator, PTO cap, and PTO sleeve.

Wiring is going------slowly, two steps forward and one back. I'm using cloth covered wire to look era correct. The schematic diagram that I have doesn't include an ammeter so I had to scratch my head a wee bit. The electrical system on a TE Ferguson is made by Lucas so is different that North American systems slightly.
Oh, and I painted the PTO cover and installed it.
I painted the lights black and yesterday covered them with clear and got a bad reaction, so I have to sand them down and start over.

Dutch, I'll probably have to send to England for a jar of fake Lucas smoke, ------ then again, maybe not, with my wiring expertise.

The main tractor wiring is done and some of the light wires are strung. Some of the switches and wiring have been tested and passed.
I sanded off the light buckets and repainted them.

I think the wiring is done. Tomorrow, it's time to check the fluid levels and top them up. Also, I've got an idea for a crank holder when it's not in use, so that has to be made.

Never noticed it before, but that looks a lot like a 8n Ford. I know Ford used Fergusonís 3 point hitch, looks like Ferguson used a lot of Ford stuff, too.
