1 Hi, Just viewed my copy of the hydraulics DVD and I’m really impressed with it. I’m no expert when it comes to mechanical things but the DVD is clear and simple enough to even keep me right – can’t wait to get started on my TEF!
Thanks and hopefully the engine DVD is not too far away!
2 Hi Steve,Many thanks for the T20 Hydraulics Video – Very well put together. I bought it because my T20 hydraulics are under-performing. Patrick.3 I could have probably managed to take the system apart and put it back together again. However, I would have really struggled with all the components in the pump. All those parts would have had me beaten I think, anyway the DVD just made it so easy to follow – knowing which parts to start with and building it up step-by-step. It was awesome been able to just copy the process. Superb!!Walter, New South Wales .4 It just couldn’t have been easier following your film. Wouldn’t have been able to do it without the vid.David, Hampshire.

Vintage Tractor Engineer just has one more thing to add…
Q. Is this DVD a Hollywood blockbuster with specail effects, highly paid film stars and a multi-million dollar budget?
A. No it isn’t
Q. Does this DVD show you how to undertake the repair in clear step-by-step detail?
A. YES, IN CLEAR DETAIL THAT A COMPLETE BEGINNER CAN FOLLOW !!!
I would say the most likely thing is a sticking control valve. Did you use a genuine Massey Ferguson control valve? In our experience the valves that come in kits from other manufacturers are not manufactured accurately enough. The contol valve is an extremely precision component. Also, I would say the same thing about the relief valve.
We have had non-genuine control valves stick open (letting oil into the cylinder) and then the non-genuine relief valve hasn’t blown off because it was also not working as it should have done.
I suspect the control valve (or spring) will be your problem. The DVD will help you with this and to make sure you have got everything else correct (but you may be confident in doing it without the DVD).
Hope that helps,
Hi Steve, I am interested in purchasing your DVD on TE 20 Ferguson Hydraulics.
Will it give me information on the problem I have.
the hydraulics stick in the up position when a load is lifted.
they will not come down unless I jerk the tractor forward a couple of times (clutch dump) and the implement will drop to the ground.
this problem has come about since I dismantled the hydraulics and inspected and reassembled with a repair kit.
happy to pay for information.
the heaver the load the worse it is
With reference to Ross December 16th 2011 – I find myself in exactly the same situation – a stuck pto shaft that only moved an inch or so then sticks. I have the top plate off and have loosened the bottom plate and can see that the shaft is snagging within the pump somewhere. Can the pump be dismantled to some degree in situe? This seems to be my only way forward unless you can help a T20 owner at the end of his tether (ps I have a howards reduction box fitted if that effects things)
I have a Massey tea20, I am interested in video in TE 20 Hydraulics DVD, the hydraulics on miy tractor work, I would like to build a reference library for repairs for this machine.I changed my PTO shaft to the 1 3/8 shaft and noticed the white sludge when I inspected in side where PTO goes. What causes this to go white. Secondly, I have the same milky white oil coming from the bottom hole in bell housing where clutch is located. I am suspecting the front seal of gear box. Can you answer a couple of questions,
1. Do you have information on changing this seal.
2.Does the gear box and diff communicate, use the same oil, as the white stuff is comeing from both ends.
I would be interested in what I can get of you to work on my tractor.
I would say that it depends on your experience. If you have never dismantled an engine before then you would learn how to assess the components for wear and serviceability, what to look for etc. These fundamentals are similar for all engines – obviously with the specific specs and tollerances for the engine you are working on.
However, there are different techniques for working with differnt designs of engine, for example different designs of cylinder liners require different methods of removal and re-fitting. Also the timing procedures and set-up are very specific to each individual model of engine.
I find your dvd’s very interesting, I was just wondering If the skills learned in your dvd can be transfered over to other machines like skid loaders. I know that’s not what you are working on, but I guess what I’m trying to say could I use the fundamentals of your dvd’s on other diesel engines.
Trying to rebuild a Ferguson TEF 20 tractor. Tried to remove P.T.O shaft to get pump out to inspect and clean but shaft only comes out 2/3 inches then stops.
Is there any advice that you could give me to remove the P.T.O shaft completely.
We produce the DVD in both the Pal (European format) and NTSC (USA and Canada format). If you just order from the website then we will send the appropriate disc to you.
Thanks for the enquiry,

I have a 1950 TO-20 and am interested in your DVD. Several years ago, a friend of mine told me that UK DVDs will not play on US DVD players—something to do with being different region formats. Will your DVD work on US players?
Just received and watched the Ferguson TE 20 Hydraulics DVD.
Found it very instructive and also makes it more possible to work on it myself,if required.
Just one thing can you stop referring small bolts as screws.
I kept looking for the screw.
We’ve never worked on a French built tractor, so I’m not certain if the Hydraulics DVD is relevant or not.
I have a TEF20 and front loader to fit. But do not know which type it is. Do you have any DVD’s on fitting various types of froot loaders?
I just became the owner of a french made massey ferguson 30, it has some issues, like the hydraulics work sometimes and dont other times, today whilst slashing the pto drive jumped out of engagment and now wont engage,just crunches.
Do you think the TE 20 Hydraulics DVD will be relevent to my 30?
I just ordered the engine rebuild video as it looks really useful.
Any Ideas on the pto engagement issue appreciated.
Thanks and regards from Aus
We are UK based, and as a result we’ve never worked on a TO30. However, I believe you’re correct in saying that the hydraulic systems are very similar.
We don’t have a distributor in the US, but ship direct form the UK. We charge the same shipping rate to anywhere in the world.
If you order from the website the shopping cart will advise you how much it will cost in your local currency and do the currency exchange for us at the current exchange rate.
The payment gateway on the website uses Paypal, but you don’t need a Paypal account. You can pay with a debit or credit card.
Any problems just let me know.
I am very interested in your DVD. I have a TO30 tractor that I want to check the Hydraulic components. I believe I have a sticky control valve, but while I am in there, I would like to make sure everything is okay. Isn’t the TE20 Hydraulics very similar to the TO30? If so, please let me know how I can obtain a copy of this DVD
