In order to make everything work properly you must replace the draft control spring and rod. See how that rod has broken? The spring is also missing. Parts shouldn't be expensive. Personally I'd recommend the expense of getting a shop manual and parts manual from Massey. The Operator's manual is available as a FREE .pdf download from a certain Ford N series tractor club. Google for them and it's listed under manuals.

You can also access the parts book online through your dealer will help you set up an account. It's useful for the exploded parts diagram to help reassemble.

The shop manual is a must because it will show you how to adjust the draft control spring assembly once you've replaced it. The draft control/hitch linkage will not function properly broken. You might have to pull the top cover and that will require a engine hoist.

Hope this helps,

Looking at the pictures I d bet the system is full of crap and water.
Why not find a tractor wrecker even if you have to go to UK or Northern Ireland and pick up the whole hydraulic system and include also the hydraulic pump unit which can be overhauled with a new kit
Personally I d be looking for another Fergy say with a seized engine but a good back end if your engine is OK. Just break the tractor open at the clutch housing and replace the oil seal from the gearbox shaft when you re at it

The TO20 as far as I m aware was the same as the Coventry produced TE20
Engines could have been different however.
I live in Western Australia and have 4 Fergies

You are on the right forum. An easy way to find parts is by simply entering the part number into Google search. Many times you will find what you need.

I just entered the Spring part number 180998M1 and the plunger rod part number 181052M1 into Google and immediately found places I could order them. Didn't have such immediate luck with the spacer but I know they are out there.

You will need a service book because you will need to remove the top cover to install the parts. Don't just take out the bolts and pull the cover or you will break your control valve, you must disconnect it from the pump first.

The pictures show what the underside of the top cover on a TO30 looks like.

Dan is on the ball mate

Lots of spares via UK suppliers like BARECO, SPAREX, AGRILINE,Tractorstoreuk etc
The latter are really competitive price wise
