MF35 and MF135 Cross Shaft Arrangement

The cross shaft on the MF35 and MF135 tractors are held with bushes and sealed with ‘o’ rings.

The MF35 has two smaller bushes with an ‘o’ ring inbetween them.

The 135 has one larger bush.  The ‘o’ ring then fits to the outside of the bush, and this is facilitated by having a top lift arm […]

TEA-20 Hydraulic Relief Valve Problem

Broken hydraulic top covers are a relatively common problem with Ferguson TE-20 tractors.  The easiest solution for most people is to source a second hand component.

When he was lifting a heavy load on the 3 point linkage there was a loud crack and the load […]

Improved Bracket – Hydraulic Top Cover Removal

Here at VTE we already have a simple bracket design for helping to remove the hydraulic top cover for the MF35 (the same principle would apply for many other models as well).

The top cover is a heavy component and the bracket is designed so that the cover can be removed and inverted for servicing by […]

Tractor Link Arms Will Not Lower

Your link arms will not lower.  It’s a frustrating problem.

We commonly associate hydraulic problems with poor pump performance and reduced or slow lift capacity.  However, we get quite a number of people reporting that their link arms won’t lower.

CAD Drawing, Bracket For Hydraulic Top Cover Removal, MF35

A number of people have used the drawings to manufacture their own bracket which has made the […]
