    Out of interest what was the difference and evolution between the 100/105 (with ford or perkins engine - thats where my knowledge ends with that product ) and the 120 and then the 135/155.....where the latter a totally new incarnation or beefed up 120?.......and the 100/105 were just reworked TM90s?

    I smell a potential Classic Tractor article coming up!

    The 90s had a Perkins 6.354 while the 105s had a Ford 6cyl (don't know which model).

    I assumed that they must have done something to the gearbox/diff/final drives to uprate them?

    AFAIK the 135s and 155s were all 6.354Ts I think. Didn't realise they could get 135hp out of a 6.354 without a turbo.

    Yep well that's the impression that I've always got...both have a 6.354T just with different pump adjustments/boost.
