FORDFORDSON TRACTORS.

Ford tractors would have appeared in the Australian country side, soon after the first T model Ford car was seen…I came across a couple sitting in a shed, on an orange farm just outside of Wyee [NSW] back in 1956…Cannot remember much about them other then that they had the T model type engine and a water type aircleaner. I would say they were early pre 1920 tractors.

I have never come across a pre 1928 Fordson tractor that was made in the USA, but have known quite a few of the socalled Irish Fordson. This Fordson tractor, called the “F” model was produced in Ireland from 1919 until 1932… then continued in the UK until the WW2 post period. To be quite honest it was a very crude machine, it had a wet clutch and the norm was to tie back the clutch pedal when not in use, so the plates were disengaged, otherwise they would stick together. The steering also was very hard to control.

The early FordFordson tractors was difficult to start. In cold weather it was a chore to start because the oil congealed on the cylinder walls and on the clutch plates. It had to be hand cranked repeatedly with great effort. It took a strong man to hand crank .Sometimes farmers would build a fire under the tractor to warm up the crankcase and gear boxes to make it crank easier. I can remember doing this as a kid back about 1946. The tractor ran on kerosene but you started it on petrol, The clutch pedal had to be ridden for awhile until the oil warmed up and the clutch would then release. Here is a list of tractors Ford/Fordson made up to around 1965…those marked au can be found in Australia.
• Fordson Model F (produced from 1917-1928 at Dearborn, Michigan and from 1919-1922 at Cork, Ireland)
• Fordson N model (produced from 1929-1932 at Cork, Ireland and from 1933-1945 at Dagenham, England)au

The 1918 FordFordson tractor produced in the USA had an engine much the same as the T model Ford car & truck had.


The "F" model was a common tractor used here in Australia, up until the end of WW2... most FordFordson tractors were imported from Ireland and the UK, but a few came in from the USA.


1946-47 saw the beginning of what we could say was the beginning of the FordFordson tractors as we know them... with 3 piont linkage the option of a diesel engine, and electric starting for the kerosene tractors... Fordson of the UK exported to Australia, the sit up and beg Fordson major, a diesel version had the Perkins engine, there was the rare half track version, and the less rare the bulky looking crawler.


a favourite here in Australia was the dexta Fordsons that came available in the 60`s Two versions the fordson Dexta and the super Dexta.

The mid sixties saw the demise of the Fordson, tractors from about 1965 just used the word Ford as in the ford 4000 etc.

FORDSON TRACTOR 1920 A tractor is a "hard puller." It is designed for the purpose of pulling heavy loads at slow speeds over almost any kind of ground. The Fordson tractor is manufactured by the Ford Motor Company, Detroit, Mich.

Description of Fordson Tractor
As already stated, the purpose of a tractor is to pull heavy loads at slow speeds over almost any-kind of ground. Energy is put into the tractor in the form of kerosene. The vaporizer and mixing chamber change this kerosene into a combustible gas by mixing it with clean, moist air from the air washer. The engine burns this gas and converts it into mechanical energy, causing a rotation of the crank shaft. This power is passed through the clutch and is delivered to the transmission, where the speed of rotation is changed or the direction reversed. The power is then delivered to the worm drive, which further reduces the speed of rotation, and, by means of the rear axle shafts, turns the rear wheels, thus causing the motion of the tractor. The crank case, gear box, and axle housing serve as the frame of the machine.

The engine is similar in design to that of the Ford model T", the main differences being as follows: 1. The bore and stroke of the engine are greater than in the model "T."
2. The water connections between the radiator and the water jacket are effected with iron connectors instead of with rubber hose, as in the model "T."
3. The fan is larger, runs on ball bearings, and is supported by a bracket from the upper water connector, instead of from the cylinder block, as in the model "T."
4. There is no removable plate in the bottom of the crank case to permit access to the connecting rods, it being necessary to remove the entire crank case for this purpose. The ignition is similar to that of the Ford model "T" .

Carburetion is obtained by Holley vaporizer .
Transmission is for the purpose of driving the tractor at various speeds according to the class of work to be done. This device also permits the tractor to be reversed. These speed variations are obtained by engaging different sets of gears . Clutch: The clutch is inserted between the engine and transmission, and permits the engine to be completely disconnected from the transmission when it is disengaged. When engaged, it first slips a trifle, thus permitting the motion of the engine to be gradually imparted to the transmission and remaining portions of the machine, and consequently no , jerk occurs.

The operation of the clutch is as follows : The gradual "take up" of the load is effected by friction between several disks. The driving disks are fastened to the flywheel by six studs. The driven disks are keyed to the transmission through the clutch drum. When the clutch pedal is allowed to rise, the clutch springs are permitted to press on the clutch drum, thus pressing the disks together and therefore making a connection from the engine to the transmission drive shaft. Rear axle: The rotation from the transmission is reduced in speed and imparted to the rear wheels by the rear axle. The principal parts are, the worm, the worm wheel (gear), the differential gears and pinions, and the rear axles as shown .



The worm is connected directly to the transmission, and, owing to the engagement of its threads with the teeth of the worm wheel, it causes the latter to rotate. The rotation of the worm wheel can be imparted to either of the rear wheels or to both, in any desired ratio, the parts effecting this result being the differential gears and pinions. Thus it is possible to turn the tractor.

Operating Instructions Always hitch to the draw-bar cap, never to the rear axle housing.

To operate the tractor, proceed as follows:
1. Fill the radiator with as clean water as it is convenient to get.
2. Lubricate thoroughly (see section on "lubrication" farther on).
3. Fill the air washer with clean, fresh water until it runs out of the filler hole.
4. Fill the fuel tanks with clean fuel that is free from water. 5. For operation of the vaporizer, see page 989.
6. See that the gear shifter is in neutral position .
7. Lift the spark lever (on the dash) to the third or fourth notch from the bottom.
8. Open the throttle (under the steering wheel) one-third of the way toward the driver.

REAR WHEEL TREAD SETTINGS
MANUALLY ADJUSTED REAR WHEELS

(See A, Figure 1)
Figures 22, 23, and 25 in your Operator's Manual illustrate the manually adjusted rear wheel tread settings for a given tire size. These same settings apply to the 100-inch axle, providing that each wheel assembly is positioned 8 inches inward on the axle. When the wheels are positioned at the outer end of the axle, all of the settings shown in Figures 22, 23, and 25 will increase 16 inches, providing for a maximum tread width of 104 inches (112 inches with 23.1-34 tires).

Figure 2 shows an example of how the spacers can be used to change tread width. The example corresponds with the left wheel shown in view "A" of Figure 23 in your Operators Manual. POWER ADJUSTED REAR WHEELS (See B, Figure 1)

Two different support block arrangements are available for use with single power adjust wheels on the 100-inch axle. One type of block is approximately 4 inches long and is shown in Figure 3. It is the type currently covered for the 84-inch axle in your Operator's Manual, Figure 26. The other type of block is approximately 8 inches long and is shown in Figure 4 of this supplement. Wheel tread ranges for single power adjust wheels with short and long support blocks are listed below. The close spaced dual wheels are on two power adjust rims that are supported by a single disc. Figure 5 illustrates how the wheels are attached to the disc when equipped with 16.9-34 tires. Figure 6 shows how they are attached when equipped with 18.4—34 or 18.4—38 tires. Both are available for tractors | equipped with the standard 84-inch or the optional ' 100-inch axle. Tread widths for each are listed below.

Inner Wheels: • 60 to 76 inches (152.4 to 193.0 cm) with 16-9-34 tires • *64 to 80 inches (162.5 to 203.2 cm) with 18.4-34 or 18.4-38 tires

*NOTE: When the wheel assemblies for 18.4—38 rear (ires are moved outward 2 inches or more, the tread width of the inner wheels can be reduced 4 inches (2 inches per wheel) from that listed by power adjusting the inner wheels inward. Outer Wheels:
• 97 to 113 inches (246.3 to 287.0 cm) with 16.9-34 tires • 104 to 120 inches (264.2 to 345.6 cm) with 18.4-34 or 18.4-38 tires

To obtain the minimum tread width of both the inner and outer wheels, as listed above for the 100-inch axle, the wheel assembly must be positioned 8 inches inward on the axle. Conversely, to obtain the maximum tread width, the wheel assembly must be positioned 8 inches outward on the axle. As illustrated in Figure 2 for manual adjust wheels, always install spacers when the wheel assemblies are moved inward. WIDE SPACED DUAL WHEELS

(See D, Figure 1) Two different arrangements of wide spaced dual wheels are available. One arrangement has manually adjusted inner and outer wheels as shown in Figure 7. The other arrangement has power adjust inner wheels and manual adjust outer wheels as shown in Figure 8. The manual adjust outer wheel is the same for both types. Tread widths for each version are listed below under the appropriate heading.
