Where can I buy the brackets that hold crank on my 1949 Fergie it in place? August 18, 2016.
The crank retaining clips are in later editions of the TE/TEA/TO-20, TO-30 parts books, but I am well aware that parts like a crank retaining clip might not appear in these later editions of the parts books. I will check an original TE/TEA-20 parts book. I am also aware that parts books for the TE/TEA-20 printed in England sometimes show parts not listed in the North American versions. For example, the English version of the TE-20 parts book, two versions of the upper water outlet casting above the water pump are shown, one with the temperature gauge hole on the right side, and one with the temperature gauge hole on the left side. The North American parts books only show the water outlet with the temperature gauge hole on the left side.
The TO-35 diesel parts book lists a Starting Crank Retaining Clip, part number 827562M1, and a Starting Crank Retaining Cup, part number 827563M1. I will check the TO-35 Diesel Operator’s Manual for pictures of these clips holding the crank.
