Picking up up handy hints on a MF135 with the Continental 4 cylinder petrol.
3300hrs ish.
Owned for a while but been out of the country for the last 7 years.
Just completing the oil changes, New battery and away she goes!?
Need to locate the LT side neutral safety switch. Broke off clean and not standing out for me.
Semi retired so time to play with toys.

Howdy acrosborn60, welcome to the tractor forum

The neutral safety switch is located on top of the transmission on right side just in front of the gearshift/steering housing. Should have a couple of wires running to it.

Thanks for the reply
The male spade connections have sheared off flush with the housing. Hence the issue locating the exact point. Only had a glance so far on the left, so should have better luck now.

Thanks.
It started up eventually which was great.
Not quite smooth running so carb and Electrics to go over in more detail.
Apparently the TV didn't like it!

Any pointers on this issue
Problem is the speed of the hydraulics.
Front bucket lifting slow regardless of setting.
Bucket is remaining in place when raised though.

Thanks

If you are using the scotch yoke pump for the loader, you will have slow hydraulics. The only thought to help would be to be sure the control is set for constant pump. Other wise the pump may need attention. If you are using any other pump such as a front mounted or PTO pump you may have a plugged suction filter. By the way the bucket staying in place indicates the control valve is good.

Thanks for the reply.
Not had the opportunity to work on it since the last post.
Had run originally at a faster rate, so see what it's like when it's up and running before opening up the pump.
A flooding carb to sort and replacing points etc. Well and truly pitted.
