Thanks all for the advise.
DavidP, a legend as always.
I am in the UK as you guessed, the MF tools you mentioned, are they easy to source or is there an alternative? I am in two minds whether just to pay someone to fix it or to try myself.
The chap who has worked on my tractor in the past found the issue and I can't afford his labour charges, hence my thoughts at sorting myself. This chap suggested that I would HAVE to have a new axle beam, he didn't even mention about the bushes. I can see that the rear bush is knackered. He didn't inspire much confidence in his skills, he came recommended, but maybe he's not done that much on MF 135's before.

I have attached a drawing from the Sparex site. It shows 2 different pivot pins (15 & 26), is this right?

I will pop the rad and bonnet (hood) off at the weekend and see whats going on. I will jack her up too and see where the movement is.
I will report back!

Hello,
Yes, there are two pin types for the front axle on the later 135.
1869 633M1 is up to s/n 434523 and 1869 634M1 is from s/n 434523. I have a recollection that the difference is in the length of the pin.
If you have basic tools and a safe means of supporting the tractor then there should be no problem. Once you have the new bushes and pin the cost of having a drift machined would be a simple job. Do you know anyone who has a hobby lathe in his garage? It's worth doing to make sure you don't damage the new bushes. If you need to make a puller then I or someone on here will talk you through it and show you what is needed. A worst case scenario would be that you can't remove the pin and have to take the beam and casting assembly to someone who has a suitable press....tractor dealership etc. If all fails then you should be able to hacksaw through the pin on both sides of the beam (don't think it will be too hard) and remove it that way.
With the bonnet, radiator and locking pin removed give the pin a few 'exploratory' wallops
with a heavy hammer or small sledge to see if you have any movement. If you do, you are halfway there!
Cheers
DavidP
