I have a 1970 MF20 Industrial with the Perkins diesel and the power steering pump is finally going out I believe. I cannot find a replacement to save my life for the one that is on there. I have found several replacements, I believe they are Barnes pumps. The pump that is on there is a Plessey. Can anyone tell me for sure that the replacement pumps will fit? And has anyone done this swap and can you tell me if the lines were even close or do I need to have custom limes made?

I tried to link to the replacement pump for reference but it will not let me? It is 773126M92

Interesting history. My steering is still working some but not real well. I am going to open it up and see if the filter is clogged but if it is I have to wonder (worry) about what it is clogged with. I know the history of this tractor pretty well since it was owned by the college I worked for and I serviced it for years. Then it was sent to a different campus and those clowns never told me the power steering stopped working! They just kept using it by muscling the steering manually!!! And I can tell you that turning that thing manually is REALLY hard! I got it in the shop and filled the system and it went right back to working like nothing happened. Sent it back to them and their next trick was a new guy who did not know how to run it kept trying to start it without pushing in the pump fuel shut off. So he just kept spraying ether into it until it finally bent a rod. Sent it out and had the engine completely rebuilt and not too long after it came back they parked it and there it sat for about four years. They decide to auction it off and I won it for 700.00. The clutch was rusted together so I started it up in second gear and drove to the edge of the road with the bucket down and clutch in and held on as it dug in and the rear wheels started to hop. Second hop the clutch broke loose and has been fine ever since. In the time I worked on it their I had replaced the hydraulic pump, the locking differential fork, the radiator and converted it to a standard alternator. Add all of that to the new engine plus it has a Massey Ferguson loader on it and I got it for 700.00!. I have a very bad back and this is the only way I can get anything done on my property so I really need to keep it going.

That was an awesome deal for something you used to operate and now own. I found my first tractor a TO30 about two miles from my house, brought it home for $1000 and had her up and running two days later. That was 18 yrs ago. Since then and thanks to this forum I have been restoring and repairing these old Ferguson tractors and reselling them as I finish them. So far Iíve been able to flip 5 or six of them also acquired a TO35, a TE20 for myself and there are seven others waiting their turn to be brought back to life.

Thanks Tom, I have seen the pumps advertised for the Massey but I was hoping to find someone who has actually used one. I don't want to get it torn apart and find out that the pump does not fit or I am going to have major problems getting lines made for it.
By the way, I realized after the fact that I posted this in the wrong forum here, I have since posted it in the correct Massey Ferguson forum. I never even heard of a Harry Ferguson!

Well, welcome to the Harry Ferguson forum. A lot of tractor history belongs to Mr. Ferguson. He had perfected the three point hitch system with draft control for plowing and ground engagement and partnered with Henry Ford to build the Ford 2n and 9n series tractors. After Henry Ford the second violated his grandfatherís handshake agreement, Harry sued Ford and began building the TO series tractors in America. In 1954, I think, Harry ended up selling Ferguson to the Massey Harris company, hence the Massey Ferguson name.

Iím sure others may happily pipe in with more history.


Ps good luck with the pump, and numbers matching parts usually work.
