I have a Ferguson TO20, Its the same hudraulic as a 8N. and the hydraulics will not work, I checked the valve, it seems to be ok, moves, I was using the tractor, let the rear blade down, and after that, nothing, With the cover off, using the starter, oil comes up the tube that goes to the cylinder, using air the piston moves, I checked on the Ferguson section and no one knew what the trouble is, I hope someone here can help, Thanks in advance

Bspauld, I went back and re-read your post on the Ferguson forum. I think the answers you got were aimed more at your trying to get the control forks back on. I think they missed the point that it still won't lift after you cleaned up the control valve and put it back in. I think you might have to drop the pump and inspect the control valve chambers for contamination and inspect the pump to see if it's working at all. When I took my 2N pump apart I found dead grass stuck in the control valve chamber.

I probably didnt express myself right, Yes, I had the valve hooked up right, I used the starter to see the pump working, with the cover off, and oil came up the tube going to the piston, and air makes the arms move, makes them jump right up. And when it had oil in it, the oil moved around the pump, That was rebuilt a few years ago. Thanks for responding

I had 90W mineral oil in it, that was like tar, and had water in it, I put new 30w oil back in, everything was looking like new inside,

With the cover off,

For future reference, see tip # 16.

Do the initial troubleshooting w/ the cover ON.


Look in there and move the touch control lever. Does the control rod move?

If it does, reach in ans make sure it's still attached to the yoke.

Getting the valve hooked up is a hard thing to do most of the time, I used to do it alone, but now I have to have help, Thanks for the tips,

Today's Featured Article - What Oil Should I Use? - by Francis Robinson. I keep seein this question pop up over and over again in discussion groups all over the web. As with many things there are often several right answers and a few wrong ones. Some purist I'm sure will disagree to no end with what I will tell you but most of us out here in the real world don't really care do we ? Some of them only bring their noses down out of the air long enough to look down them anyway. If you are like me you are only doing this old tractor stuff because you enjoy it. You ...
