When Vintage Tractor Engineer is asked to go and repair a tractor, we were finding that the customer had a perfectly good workshop manual for their tractor (usually a Ferguson or Massey Ferguson). What our customers were telling us, is that the workshop manual didn’t always fully explain how to carry out the repair and so they called in Vintage Tractor Engineer. This seemed to be a shame, as the customers always like to help Vintage Tractor Engineer, see how the job is done and ‘get their hands dirty’ – everyone just loves to tinker about with tractors!
It was for this reason that we started to produce DVD videos of how to do the repairs. The concept been that ‘a picture paints a thousand words’ and that people would be able to follow a video with much more confidence that following a workshop manual. For example a workshop manual may say measure the liner stand-out or replace the starting ring gear, but if you’ve never done it before or never seen it done then how are you expected to know how to do it?
So that was it, we started producing step-by-step DVDs of how to carry out the repairs. Many people take their DVD players or laptop computers into the workshop with them and just follow the whole thing through.
If you are going to buy a workshop manual then we would recommend a genuine Ferguson or Massey Ferguson manual as (in our honest opinion) some of the manuals from other publishers don’t contain all the necessary information. Oh, and if you want to make life easy for yourself don’t forget to buy one of our DVD’s as well!

Or if you prefer a paper manual then we only sell genuine manuals…
Thanks for your comments on the 135 DVD.
At the moment we haven’t got any DVD’s or online tutorials to cover the basic servicing procedures…
BUT WATCH THIS SPACE!!!!!
It is going to take some time to do, but we have all sorts planned in the next year or two. Lots of short online videos and tutorials to be posted, from basic filter changes to more complex tasks.
I received and watched my 135 Restoration Dvd today and thought it was great. You guys did a great job I thought and it was very informative.
I have a MF 135 Diesel, which I acquired with the purchase of my farm. I have purchased MF shop and operator manuels to increase my working knowledge of these tractors and like many others, I also like working on and getting my hands dirty. However, I wished there was a dvd showing step by step how to do simple services on the 135. Changing the oil, filters along with any other routine services items. Basically, a dvd for REAL BEGINNERS. Do you have any dvd’s or perhaps online tutorials that would cover these services. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated, and again great job on the 135 Restoration Dvd.
Unfortunately we haven’t even got started on the TEF yet. We did plan to have it all filmed and onto DVD by about this time (mid-Summer), but other things have taken up our time.
It will be coming at some time in the future, but I’m not certain when. I’m thinking that surely we’ll get started this Autumn. As soom as we start then I’ll start writing about it on the website, so if you go to the homepage you will be able to see.
Thanks for asking about the TE20 DVD. Appologies for not delivering when we first anticipated to do so.
Quite a few people are asking about when the DVD will be ready, so we’d better get a move on!
I think you mentioned sometime ago you may be doing a dvd/video of TE20 rebuild. Is there a release date for this yet?
