Universal Hobbies produce a Fordson Major tractor attached to a key ring! In fact it is so close to the Oxford model in detail and scale I at first took it to be the same casting.

It might be possible to modify the tab to represent the drawgear.

Hough Loader Legacy Frank G. Hough’s front-end loader innovations are still on the job today. The simple curves in the loader arms increased wheel clearance, allowed for larger carry loads and improved the bank-digging capabilities of the machine. Front-end loaders are so commonplace that they blend into the mechanical landscape at construction sites. Most farms, many estates and even some suburban homes are equipped with at least one.
The serial number of the Fordson Dexta is stamped on the flange between the engine and clutch housing on the left hand side of the tractor. The castings codes (clutch casting, rear axle casting, gearbox casting, hydraulic lift casting) can also give an indication of year of manufacture.

Report to Moderator Posted: Sun Feb 12, 4: Refer to pic1 again, note the small center punch indents around the inner periphery of the seal housing from about 9 0’clock to 3 o’clock.

Staking is only done to the housing, not to the seal. This is common practice when installing seals and bearings that are in jeopardy of backing out and is recommended in the Case manual for this seal.
Staking is done before the shaft is installed to provide better access. View pic 2, I have deleted the parts that are inside the transmission and are not in way of the seal assembly.
