  • OILY HANDS AND THE SMELL OF DIESEL: TALES OF A FORD DEALER ENGINEER IN THE 1960s

    1960 saw the dawn of unprecedented innovation and development in farm machinery; a period of rapid technological advancement produced machines that are the mainstay of the current very buoyant vintage tractor restoration movement. At the start of the decade, spark-ignition Standard Fordson tractors still occasionally required repair; by the end of the decade, the Fordson Diesel Major had been replaced by the Ford 1000 series. 

    The history of these iconic brands is well-known; Oily Hands and the Smell of Diesel gives an alternative view - the inside story of the agricultural machinery repair trade. First employed as an apprentice, then moving his way up to an engineer, David Harris gives an entertaining, informative personal account of his time at a Ford main tractor dealership. While working on Ford, Fordson, County, Roadless and Muirhill tractors, Chaseside loaders, Claas combines, and New Holland and Jones balers. 

    Including many historical photographs, David describes the technical challenges in detail and tells of the ups and downs of life in the workshop and out in the field. This book will be a must-read for anyone who is or was involved in the machinery industry, anyone looking to restore or repair vintage agricultural machinery, and anyone with a general interest in farming and machinery history.

  • THE COMPLETE BOOK OF CLASSIC FORD TRACTORS

    First manufactured in 1917, Ford tractors (initially sold under the Fordson name, a contraction of Henry Ford & Son) were, thanks to mass production, the first affordable and reliable machines that allowed small farmers to replace draft animals. Though manufacture was exclusive to Great Britain by the 1930s, Ford tractors returned stateside with a roar in 1939 with the 9N, which incorporated the hitch system of Irish engineer and inventor Harry Ferguson.

    In this comprehensive addition to Motorbooks’ Complete Book Series, tractor historian Robert Pripps provides a detailed and complete account of Ford tractors, from the earliest Fordsons to the Ford-Fergusons, the Ford N Series, and the Ford "World" tractors manufactured into the 1970s. Amply illustrated, the book also offers extensive information on the numerous options and accessories, implements and variations that came out of Dearborn, Sherman Bros., and the great Funk Bros. hot rod conversions that could make each of these popular machines utterly unique. In between, the book traces year-to-year model changes within each series.

    With content from Pripps’ best-selling The Big Book of Ford Tractors and The Illustrated Ford and Fordson Tractor Buyer’s Guide, The Complete Book of Ford Tractors is supplemented with new text, data-packed specification boxes, and a largely new selection of incredible color photography and period advertising.

    The only book offering comprehensive coverage of the breadth of collectible Ford tractors, The Complete Book of Ford Tractors is a must-have volume for every tractor enthusiast's library.
