Ford Tractors

Sir,

I have read with interest the letter from Mr. J. S. Bacon regarding the 5,000 Ford Tractors ordered in 1917, but surely be is mistaken in saying these had a single ignition coil.

Having driven one of them for many thousands of hours I can assure him they had the same four "trembler" ignition coils and a roller on the end of the camshaft the same as the model-T car.

The 5,000 tractors were in fact ordered in one contract by Lord Milner (see "My Life and Work" by Henry Ford, 1922 edition).
