Re: New to me MF135
You will save yourself lots of frustration if you do thread chasing w/a tap & die. And I donít think there are bushings on the radius arms, and almost every Ford or Ferguson Iíve been around or worked on had wear on them from the tires rubbing on them from too many hard turns. Changing the coolant is really a smart idea, if you donít, your just rolling the dice and praying nothing freezes. And, for you hardware (bolts/nuts/washers) go to one of the larger tractor dealers, the Ford dealer 20 miles away sells standard grade hardware by the pound. Grade 5 & 8 are sold by piece, so if I need an up grade bolt, they always have the size & length bolt I need, and while Iím there grab a few hands full of various sizes, slightly too long of a choice, get out the hack saw, right length now. LOL. From the looks of everything I see, you shouldnít be too far into it financially, and you will thoroughly enjoy the tractor for a long time.
