anyone got a diagram?

is this a splas lube setup like the old ford 9n.. or is it a self contained box like a ford 8n?

trying to help a guy via email with his to35 with a leak.. but i don't have fergy manuals.. and i'm mainly a ford guy.. and he's not a 'tractor' person...

if the steering gearbox is still working, good gears, etc: might try this fix:

1. adjust gears properly
2. suck all the old oil out as there is no drain in the gearbox
3. then fill gear box with john deere corn head grease or case ih corn head grease.

corn head grease in not really grease like most of us think of grease, it it more like a heavy oil and is one of the best lubes around.

it will not run out of seals like the 90 weight gear oil.

might try it,

taking that steering gearbox off and re-sealing it is going to be a job and no telling what you will break: steering wheel, steering arms, etc: realize those parts have not been off in 50+ years.

good luck.

have him try it, who knows the corn head gear box oil might work and leak very little.
could also add some gearbox oil stopleak in with it again, anything better than taking that old gear box off and resealing it. another option: fill steering gearbox with grease, many old bushhog and rake, gearboxes running today that have not had any oil in years, when they started leaking: owner just filled them with grease and when back to work.

No real need for a drain in the box as the oil only needed changing every 50 years. Sure it is only now that the problem is cropping up...and it is just around the 50year mark !. Sam

I just rebuilt the steering on a MF-35. The TO-35 is very similar from what I saw. The box is closed on the bottom. The only place for it to leak is the side plate gasket or the shaft seals. Both are pretty straight forward to replace.
