New from Western Canada

Postby lukamar » Sat Apr 13, 2019 4:06 pm

Just bought a 1950 TE20 from a friend who bought it last year for a specific project he has completed. I learned to drive on an old tractor, don't remember the make, when I was visiting my uncles farm/ranch when I was a kid.

It needs some TLC and has been abused a bit but generally it's running fairly well. It's equipped with a Twin Draulic, from Iowa, front loader and a homemade back blade which is in unusable condition. My intention is to use it for snow removal and other stuff around my property, about an acre in size.

I also like to work on old cars and such so it should be a nice project to get back to looking decent but not planning on making it look like new. I'm also rebuilding a 1950 Ford Custom delux automobile at the moment.

I don't have any pics yet as I have it in my shop doing some wiring work, it was converted to 12 Volt, and also a basic tune up.

Hard to get a picture in my shop but this is the bast I can do until I get the battery and the electrical finished.

Welcome Lukamar.
Let me know the engine number (stamped next to the coil ) and I will see if I can determine the day it was made .

If I got the correct numbers. There is a bit of aluminum plate by the coil at the top but it's mostly ripped off.

This is the casting number I think.
Z120A-600 X B15X

When someone retrofitted to 12v they put the coil horizontal so that's probably blocking it from sight I'll look behind the coil or take it off tomorrow.
