Making A Video Guide For MF135 Hydraulics Repair

Posted by The 135 Webmaster on March 15, 2016

The Vintage Massey Ferguson 135 website has a sister site over at Vintage Tractor Engineer.

We have the dedicated MF135 website because they are such a great tractor and deserve their very own website dedicated to nothing but the 135!

So what do we do at Vintage Tractor Engineer?

Well at VTE we have more in-depth tractor maintenance articles and procedures (in fact, we have hundreds of them) to show you how to do various maintenance procedures.  We also have full in-depth DVD or online videos to take tractor owners through more complex tasks such as engine repairs or hydraulics repairs.  These are shown in full detail so that anyone can follow the guides.

We have been getting an increased number of emails from MF135 owners who need a detailed video for the 135 hydraulics system.

There are some distinct obstacles and problems that 135 owners face when trying to do any work on the hydrualics system on their own.

The general method of dismantling the hydraulics is shown in the MF135 workshop manual.  That is fine and will be a big help.  However, there was also a further publication produced by MF that gave the procedure necessary to do the set-up correctly when it is been re-assembled.

This publication was only made available to MF dealerships and is no longer available.  Most people just don’t know that it ever existed and unless you were an MF mechanic back in the 1970’s that knowledge is mostly missing.

There are also special tools that are necessary to do this set-up procedure.

These tools are no longer available.

So what can we do?

Well hopefully this is where the Vintae Tractor Engineer is going to come in.

We are hoping to produce a video to shosw how to undertake this repair and show how to do the set-up procedure.  We are also having the tools reproduced so that owners are able to undertake this repair themselves and know that the job has been done correctly.

Hop over to the Vintage Tractor Engineer website now.

    Has there been any progress manufacturing the special tools for the 135 Hydraulic system?

    Hi Vincent,

    Not yet I’m afraid.

    The engine is over at the engineers at the moment. When it gets back and that is rebuilt then the next thing will be the hydrualic strip down and then the tools.

    I cant wait to see this new one. Good luck and keep up the good work. Does the 135 clutch guide come in a DVD version??

  4. Thanks KKK,

    The 135 Clutch Guide isn’t available as a DVD, just as the streaming/download version. However, if you want it on disc you can download the video files and then burn them to disc. They are .MP4 files.
