The grey Ferguson TEF 20 we have just bought is in fair condition. The wing skins have been replaced so there is no rot on them, the only thing is they have flexed slightly when they have been tightened down to the brackets which has slightly cracked the paintwork. The bonnett has had some filler at the front, which is evident from the crack in the photo.
The front grill would be OK, other than the bottom 3 bars broken out from the RH side. The front tin work is has some rust and dents, as would be expected – really the condition is quite good for the age of the tractor. To be in show condition this really needed to be replaced, but we are going to concentrate on the mechanics of the tractor first
Below we can see the pool of oil created from the oil leaking past the power take off shaft seal – in just one week of standing on the concrete.
The gaskets around the engine are leaking in several places, but these will all be replaced when we strip and then rebuild the engine.

We never got started on it. This year we’ve been filming a 3 cylinder Perkins.
Hi Steve could you please let me know when TEF20 engine rebiuld dvd is available and where to obtain a copy.
Just wondering if you have had any progress on the TEF 20 deisel engine rebuild DVD as yet.
I like many other followers of your website are keen to obtain a copy when you get the time to complete it.
Can you let me know when the TEF videos are ready. I have a Paris built FF30 and the TEF will come in handy.
I hope you can help I recently bought a TEF 20 diesel tractor with a reduction gear box and am trying to find some history and possibly a value. Can you help? There are several serial numbers but can find no web-site that I can trace them through. Look forward to hearing from you. James
Still haven’t started on it. Sorry.
We have done a Hydrualics DVD for the TE20 which I have nearly completed editing.
Did you make the DVD of the TEF 20 rebuild?
Take a look at this page, which explains the different model variants of the TE20.
I think you will have a TED 20. There should be a plate on the dash panel near your right knee as you sit on the seat – this should have the serial number of the tractor stamped on.
please send reply to my email address as i have no
my chap and i have just recently acquired a little grey fergie. We are not sure what make and model it is. It is both petrol and paraffin fuel tank. It has 6 v stamped on starter motor. The engine number is 56016 66238 it also has 3B9A stamped on the other side of the engine block. Can you please tell us what year and model or point us in the right direction to someone who can. Many thanks Sharon and Paul
I’ll put you on the mailing list.
Hi Steve, please could you email me once the TEF DVD is up for sale. It will just be that bit more helpful than the 35 one. Engines are similar but TEF DVD, would show exactly what to do with this model.
I know you were asking before, but I’m afraid we still haven’t got started. It will be coming at some point, but we just don’t seem to be able to keep up with repairing customers’ tractors and the TEF keeps getting left at the back of the shed.
Sorry to disapoint
Did you make the DVD of the TEF 20 rebuild? If so how do i order one?
Sorry, we haven’t got a TED DVD, and only plans to do a TEF at the moment.
Thanks for the enquiry,
I am also going to restore my TED 20 engine due to a heavy knock. Do you have a DVD for this type of tractor?
It would be so much help if you had.
We haven’t got a DVD on the TEF 20 engine at the moment, but the good news is that we are going to be filming a DVD for the TEF this year.
The DVD should be avaialble later this year.
Looking to rebuild my ferguson TEF 20 engine due to heavy knock. Do you have a DVD on rebuilding this engine.
