Jaworski’s ‘crystal-clear’ guide on restoring Massey Ferguson 35s

Chris Jaworski has released a 208-page agricultural engineering and machinery book, entitled Massey Ferguson 35 Tractor: Workshop Service Manual, published by Old Pond Publishing LTD.

In the UK between 1957 and 1964, Massey Ferguson manufactured some 380,000 MF35s, the most popular medium-sized farm tractors of the period.

Many have remained in work, and they are among a restorer’s favourite machines.

Chris Jaworski’s book, based on his heavily illustrated articles for Tractor & Machinery magazine, is a step-by-step manual on servicing and repairing these machines.

According to a spokesperson for the publishing company:

“This book goes back to the basics. The range and quality of his photographs are also far higher than those of the originals from sixty years ago.”

The main headings of the book are buying and safety; weekly checks; operator maintenance; engines; cooling systems; fuel systems; transmissions; rear axle and PTO; brakes; hydraulics; steering and front axle; electrics, and bodywork.

The spokesperson concluded: “For owners involved in servicing, repairs or restoration, this crystal-clear guide will help them enjoy getting the work done efficiently.”

Other tractor/machinery book

Last week, we provided our readers with a preview of The Two-Wheel Tractor Handbook: Small-Scale Equipment and Innovative Techniques for Boosting Productivity.

Small but mighty, it provides a “comprehensive” guide to the use of two-wheel tractors for gardeners, homesteaders, landscapers, and farmers.

More affordable than four-wheel tractors and infinitely more versatile than single-purpose power equipment such as rototillers, two-wheel tractors, the author claims, are “an ideal solution” for an “astonishing array” of garden landscaping, and agricultural applications.

The Two-Wheel Tractor Handbook shows small-scale growers how to leverage walk-behind tractors to maximise the productivity and profitability of their enterprises.

The book explores why you need a two-wheel tractor, essentials, including tractor implement options and functions, and equipment decision-making to suit your scale, context, enterprises, and budget.
