Wanted - Fordson Diesel Major hydraulic cylinder

Post #1 by hair bear » Mon May 25, 2020 8:57 pm

Hi, does anyone know of a Fordson Diesel Major back end - or bits of one - kicking about anywhere? I'm looking for a hydraulic arm lift cylinder for a '59 Major although I'm told anywhere from 1952 - 60 is compatible. It is part of the 'hydraulic power lift' casting on top of the back axle.
Fordson part no. E1ADKN-994758, page 64 of the parts manual, item 22.

Located in the Hampshire, Berkshire, or Surrey area would be good but willing to travel when allowed! Anything considered.
Thanks.

There are usually bits on ebay? I think you are right that the same top was used up to and including the power major. All pre draught control.

The other thing Rob have a look on the Fordson pages forum. There might be a UK enthusiast who could give some advice.

Hi Pete,
I tried registering with them back before christmas but for some reason didn't get in 'till about 6 weeks ago - useful members with lots of help available but this cylinder breaking up does seem to be a bit of a one off. Odd thing with this is the piston and seal are readily available from various suppliers, just not the cylinder. Even the super major cylinder is listed.
All is not lost though, I can bimble about with a trailer and still get in everyone's way come harvest.
