Default FOR SALE - 1946 Fordson Major E27N 7/7 high top gearbox

1946 Fordson Major E27N - Offers Invited

Been cleaned up sympathetically to show and preserve original working clothes condition.
Complete with original starter motor and electrical ducting, not often seen.
Vapouriser chamber preheat flap all complete and working, often busted off and rarely seen complete.
Would appear to have been sent back and rebuilt during its working life as many components are of a later style than 1946, have paperwork to prove original build date and owners.
Fitted with original, rarer, larger diameter wooden take off pulley.
Fitted with the 7/7 type high top ratio gearbox.
Fitted with rear lights on wings and new headlights on the front, mounted on reproduction cast iron headlight brackets. All fully working.
Comes with V5 document with original registration for this tractor.
Also various spares collected during ownership including governor, Magneto and water pump items.

Work undertaken to the tractor includes:
Brand new tyres and tubes all round.
New front wheel bearings and seals.
Brakes fully rebuilt with new linings, springs and oil seals each side.
Sump has been removed and bottom end measured and checked, all very healthy.
Back end, gearbox and engine oils all changed, air cleaner oil also replaced.
New water pump gland packing fitted.
Fuel tank been lined with sealant to resist corrosion.
Carburettor dismantled, ultrasonically cleaned and rebuilt with new gaskets.
Governor rebuilt with new thrust pips, improved thrust bearing, new collar and thrust plate and new adjustable governor control rod.
New HT leads.

All in all a very interesting and useable example of the E27N.

Half used 200L barrell of TVO available if wanted also.
