New to this site. I recently acquired a 1984 Ford 1210 4wd with FEL, i am having a hard time to located a replacement Hydraulic filter, I believe Ford in 1986 upgraded this model to have a spin on filter, However unfortunately mine does not have one the small filter is located in the small housing above the hydro pump. Any help guiding me in the right direction to obtain such a filter is greatly appreciated. I enclose a picture of the filter assy. since the tractor is new to me i would like to have a replacement filter on hand before changing the hydraulic oil. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the tractor but no maintenance records have been provided so as a bit of preventive maintenance i will replace all fluids.

Do you have a part number for your hydraulic filter?? Try calling Messick's parts department @ 1-877-260-3528. If they do not have the filter, they can surely provide you with a P/N for cross reference.

Yes but that is the number for a spin on filter which i don't have on this model, i called Messiks and they said the filter i am looking for is now obsolete and not listed anymore. The alternative is to modify the tractor to accept a spin on filter or find a replacement filter that will fit, i suspect there might be a similar filter use on some garden mowers. Best thing to do for now is to drain the oil and measure the dimensions of this filter. It is really too bad because this little tractor works perfectly well, all functions are working as they should. I appreciate your help, once i have the dimensions i will post them here and if one day you are bored out your mind and want to search for a filter...:)

Take the old filter to NAPA to see if they can match it up.

If you cannot find a replacement filter, I would switch it over to a spin-on base & filter like below. Suction filter.
