Installing aux hydraulics on my 1964 MF 135 UK model tractor.



A simple push/pull, on/off selector valve is installed on the front right top of the lift cover in place of the transfer cap, when switched on and the position control lever on the quadrant is moved up into "constant pumping", hyd pressure is diverted from the 3pt hitch to the aux line.



From the selector (or diverter) valve pressure is supplied to a double acting single spool valve that i mounted on a tall bracket on the foot plate, from there 2 hydraulic lines go to the rear of the tractor and the return line connects to the port on the left side of the lift cover.



An aluminum bracket was made up to hold the quick disconnect fittings and bolted to the axle trumpet studs.

Looks great JJ, my TO35 had the hyd valve bolted right to the cover where your diverter valve is when I got it. It made getting on and off too difficult so I removed the valve and installed the origional plate. I'm now looking thru my "junk" for the valve, this tractor belonged to my Grandad, Used on a dairy farm in SW Iowa.

Nice neat job. So when you want to use the remote the 3 pt is inop correct?

:D Al
That is correct Al, you cannot use the hitch and the remotes at the same time, the hitch stays in the raised position out of the way and I personally have never had
a 3pt implement that needed aux hydraulics. There are however other valves , such as the one mentioned by Ill John above, that will allow the use of
both functions if needed.

hi,
I'm about to add aux hydraulics to my mf135 too. Mine is a recently acquired 1974 diesel UK model. My main attachment is a rusty but solid 3 pt rear loader (circa 1970s made by PJ Parmiter & Sons, UK) with a single one-way 20" x 1.5" cylinder. Lots of fellows subsequently added a bucket cylinder to them, so I am trying to sort out an aux hydraulic set up that is workable.

You mention: "There are however other valves , such as the one mentioned by Ill John above, that will allow the use of both functions if needed."
What are these valves called and where might they be available?
Thanks,
mf135uk
