Hi, I'm renewing the draft control on a. Ferguson tef 20 that was totally seized and parts badly rusted. There was no gasket originally it seems on the triangle plate that bolts to the lift head. (arrow in pic)

I'm thinking of putting one in, it would have no ill effect on the system I'm sure?
Also on the setting of the draft and lift is there anything specific or is it a trial and error.

Grease the felt really well , work the grease into the fibres with your fingers and make sure it's completely saturated , a better chance of it repelling water for longer . Certainly an area where design was faulty .

Cut one from a cereal box , there is no oil pressure behind it which is why it rusts up so much . The UK built ones rely on an occasional spray from the oil pressure relief valve for lubrication . The only real purpose of the gasket is to keep water out .

No problem, yes to keep the rain and out is why I added it. Just had the felt washer around the plunger guide which wasn't great.

Today's Featured Article - Seeing an Old Friend - by Joe Evans. Dad had a concrete contracting business starting in 1960. One of his first pieces of equipment was a Ferguson TO-35 with a Davis loader. Dad replaced the TO-35 with a MF 202 Workbull, essentially an industrialized Ferguson 35 I am told. Dad bought the 202 new in 1962, and I recall quite clearly going to the dealer with him to sign for it. ... [Read Article]
