Re: My 1965 MF 135 Thread

Yea I definitely need to fix that, the pto is full of water, it’s lookin like milk! And it’s really low, not even at the add mark on the dipstick!

Is the trans and pto all together or are they separate cases?

Well I got the hitch working!

It was that diverter valve under the seat, having the garage at 10 degrees helped thaw the valve enough to pull it out all the way. Took me by surprise cause it started coming up while I had it running lol

Going to pick up some hydraulic oil this week to flush the system next weekend hopefully!

Next question, do these have any down pressure on the hitch? It didn’t seem to have any while I was working it, I’d prefer if it did for my grader that I want to get but if not I’ll just have to weigh it down

All 3 point hitches float, it's very dangerous if they don't. Picture yourself driving across a ditch.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for her? Curious as to what everyone considers good deals and whatnot.

I traded one of my welders that I restored, a 1956 Lincoln SA200 “Shorthood” for it, I had $3000 (+/-) into it on the restoration, and he gave me $1000 ontop with the tractor. My buddy at work was saying in this shape they go for $3200-$3800 (Depending on where you are, but that’s for this area)

So I’d say it’s a good deal. I could’ve got $4000-$5000 for the welder depending on demand but the demand is low in my area

Aaaand to everybody’s favorite seal to replace, The RMS!!! I need to do mine, it’s the only oil leak on the darn thing!

The only thing is, to split the tractor apart I will need to disconnect the loader system, which I’m not sure which part would be easier to disconnect, front or back, or to take the loader system completely off? It’s going to be a pain in my garage no matter what, but it would be much easier with the loader completely off

Looking for input on that if anyone has some!

Looking for some input on hydraulic fluid to use in this.

I can get the cheapo April TDH from Napa for $65/pail or I can buy some CASE hy-tran ultraction from work for a good price, approx $95/pail I’m thinking. But I’m unsure of it working in this tractor being for our skid steers/ loader backhoes etc.

Does anyone have any info on using case hy-tran in an MF Tractor? I’d much rather go with a better brand of oil, and the stuff I know works good in a lot of equipment

Exhaust is at my brothers getting welded up (my Lincoln sa200 isn’t small enough, he’s got a Little Lincoln hobby welder so I’ll throw it off to him lol)

Hydraulics is being flushed, I’ve got diesel sitting in the trans/pto to push the water to the bottom and I’ve drained the cylinders and lines, hopefully this weekend I’ll be able to get her up and going with good hydraulic fluid in it and get it out working a bit

Got a few things done, hydraulics + cylinders are flushed and new TDH in it, running good and sounding good with the new stack, the 3 point hitch is staying up for around 10 hours, I’ve got a crack in the boom that I need to weld too

I built a weight bumper for it and I’ve started on the A frame for my grader. Will post some pictures tomorrow!
