Ferguson Tractor TO-20 Operation and Maintenance Manual

Timing Gears (H)
Both the steel crankshaft and camshaft gears
are available in three sizes-"standard'ยท, "under-
sized" and "oversized". Gears are stamped to in-
dicate size--an "S" for standard, "O" for over-
size and "U" for undersize-followed by a num-
ber to show amount of over or undersize.
The cam gear section of block is also stamped to
indicate original installation with an "S",
"+ ",
or "-", followed by a number to show amount of
over or undersize. When replacing both gears on
block marked
1", use one standard and one
.001-inch oversize. When replacing one gear after
considerable use, the next larger gear should be
used to give a .001-inch tight fit to take up wear.
Rocker Arms (I)
Rocker arms operate on a shaft which receives
oil from rear main bearing and distributes it to
rockers through drilled holes in shaft. They are
fitted with steel-backed, babbitt-lined bushings,
and are assembled with radial groove toward push
rod side. The rocker arm shaft is assembled with
drilled holes facing valve springs.
Valves (J)
Of one-piece construction. the valves have a
45-degree seat-angle.
Note: In reassembling, exhaust valve should just
be closed and intake valve should be ready to
open, with piston at top dead center follow-
ing exhaust stroke.
