Ferguson TED20 - Assembling the Tractor Hydraulic Pump Video

We're excited to announce that Anglo Agriparts have teamed up with Waterhouse Forde for their 1952 Ferguson TED20 restoration.

'In this video we reassemble the hydraulic piston. It's a tricky job at times but it's not difficult. Have a go - good hydraulics make a tractor a pleasure to work with.'

On their smallholding in north Devon Gordon, Kathy and Oscar spend many weekends working on their land and their tractors.  In this video Gordon and Oscar reassemble the hydraulic pump for their TED20. The video is a step by step guide to help you with assembling a hydraulic pump for your Ferguson tractor and will walk you through each process, with advice along the way.

Ferguson TED20 - Assembling the Tractor Hydraulic Pump Video - Transcript

'Hi everyone and welcome back to Waterhouse Forde, we've got some really interesting and exciting news to share with you today and when we ask it we have been talking with Anglo Agriparts for a number of weeks now they approached us by our Facebook page and basically they have offered to sponsor the channel what that means is that they will provide the parts that we need for the Ferguson TD 20 restoration.


They've also agreed to supply of parts for our international, the International B276 that needs a few, well basically some maintenance work done to it. It needs a good or service a few other words that we'll be doing through the winter when it's not working sort of agreed to

sponsor that as well, so we're very excited about that - so in return for that we're also going to feature their products in our videos and we'll be talking about them we'll be showing you each parts, the you know each part will be talking about part numbers that kind of thing and also just talking about the show we say the quality of the products as well.


Obviously we will be open and honest about them if we encounter problems in obviously we'll let you know, but so far, based on what they've sent us so far we were very excited and then the other parts are really good,  and so we were quite excited about that.


So just a little bit about Anglo Agriparts. They're a uk-based family-owned business, they do provide parts to people who right across Europe. And so the company was started in the early 1980s by Alastair.  Alastair McHarg and his three children are all involved in business today so John is the managing director and runs the company today, obviously assisted by Alastair. And then we've got Joanne who's the marketing manager and the lady that we've been speaking to predominantly obviously, and then we've got Alison.  Alison who takes care of

all the customers so she's, she's probably one that you would interact with generally as a customer as well.


They are very friendly we've had great interactions with them so far of their certainly been very helpful and we can't recommend them enough. It's much more of a personal attention type experience that we get from them you know we've used some of the others and

frankly that's just as very much a purchasing transaction whereas the dangler has been great in terms of interacting with them. They certainly seem extremely helpful and if you've got questions, they're happy to take a call from you happy to deal with their questions over email as well.


So go to their website it's www.anglo-agriparts.com and from there you can obviously contact them directly from the website you can get the email address get their phone number and of course you can order parts online as well. So most of their parts are available on the website as well. Just a little bit more about them in terms of where they source their parts from.


I had a long chat with Alastair one evening and he was telling me all about you know the whole kind of supply chain so he's been involved in this industry for many, many years

even prior to starting Anglo Agriparts and he has been involved in sourcing parts for tractors from, direct from factories in India in China in Indonesia even I think in South America as well and of course in Europe. So today they design many of the parts themselves

so they basically responsible for the design and then they take those out to different manufacturers for actual manufacturing process.  Alastair was telling me in how he and John was to spend a lot of time actually in the factories getting to know the people that are making the parts, doing all the quality control and making sure that the parts are as close to original as possible.


Talking about original, Anglo Agriparts is also a supplier to a number of OEM’s as well so you can be assured that the parts are going to be pretty spot-on and exactly as a manufacturer has specified.


So yeah we're going to be talking a lot about them over the next in our videos and we'll be sharing more information with you as we go I really hope that you will support them give them a try. If you don't find what you need on their website you give them a call as I said

they're very, very personable, very easy to talk to and I'm sure that they'll always go out of their way to try and help you as much as they can.


Yeah so as you can see they've sent us lots of merchandise and there's some other bits.  Oscar's enjoying his hat he's been wearing it ever since it arrived, and it's flying the flag it’s safe to say.


So let's talk a little about today's video. So in today's video we are going to for the first time use Anglo Agriparts and we're going to rebuild a hydraulic pump on the Ferguson so a few

videos back you saw us dismantling the pump and we went through most of all the components that's all they've all been assessed now the bits,  that are going to go back together they've all been cleaned up and are ready for reassembly and of course we will talk through each of the bits, the new bits from Anglo as well.


Right so from Anglo Agriparts we've now got the hydraulic kit, you can see here

it's a A67449 that's for the Ferguson the TE series.  I believe the whole TE series is the same.


Okay so first thing we got is the gasket set, so that includes the gasket for the bottom, they basically follow around the hydraulic pump. We've got the two gaskets for the side covers, because obviously have to take those off when you're doing this job. We've got the PTO seal as well. We've got a gasket to go on the drainage plug at the bottom,  and on the other side here we've got, looks like the yeah these are the gaskets that go onto the, essentially the valve covers, as two side covers on the pump which you’ll obviously see us do that in a minute.  So

that's the gaskets.


Then we've got lots of packaging, get these out of the way. So, we’ve got the two piston

assemblies, nicely packaged there, more packaging, and then we've got the two valve cover assemblies.


Now, as you can see the valves have actually been installed but as you can see the cap is loose so you can actually get in there just check everything,  you want to oil in there as you're assembling as well so, so that that's quite important. Now this is a lovely face they've got on

There, so not going to have any issues with the gasket sealing. And as you can see this is the right hand side it’s marked RH and then on the other one we've got L for left, so right hand one and left hand one.


Okay we've got the two phosphor bronze bush guards they go over the oscillating driven gear, and they sit inside the piston assembly and I'll see, allow those or transfer the motion into on to the Pistons without causing any undue friction so that's good.


We've got the PTO shaft guard phosphor bronze bush as well, which goes obviously in the back of the of the pump and supports the PTO shaft as it comes in.


We've got the pressure release valve. This is I believe an upgraded design over the original which is actually very similar to the one we took out of this pump, so looks like it was replaced at some point in the tractors life. But again this is the upgraded one so that's good.


And then we've got the control, sorry control valve, which I'll show you when we as we're going but actually we didn't disassembled this in in the video when we were just dismantling the pump but later on when cleaning it I took this out and what we found was a little shaft inside there was horribly bent meaning that we needed it, so just as well but this is actually included in the,  in the kit because we would have needed to have replaced it.


Anyway so that's the kit. And as a reminder, part number is A67449 and from what I can see it all looks like a really high-quality kit and of course we're going to have a go at fitting everything and from that we may, well we'll see how everything goes together, but I'm looking forward to putting it, all together.


Ok so we've got a side cover here, so Oscar let's um get that off. Okay let's pull one of those caps off, okay now probably understand yourself right, okay so now I've got the rubber seal in there so if you give me the small pliers,..


Okay so that's the, I believe that's the exhaust valve which is taken out so you gotta place that in here, in that valve, I think that's the exhaust is at the top and you should have a shaft

… okay you should be, I think another spring, if I’m not mistaken

It's like a grabber game.

It’s a shorter spring and then a slightly lighter gauge as well. Okay just try to see what you're doing look at what you’re doing.

I can see what I’m doing.

They’ll be in that valve.

It’s tiny

Which is smaller, yeah.

Now in terms of reassembly now so for some kits you buy these will all be independent, you basically have to build these up yourself.

Right so Oscar let's pop a little bit of oil down here not too much maybe like one or two squares. Okay and then now what you want to do is take the rod with the pliers and get the rod into that seat at the bottom. See the seat still. Yeah.


Right what's next



Right, so that’s the two valve covers ready. We'll just put those to one side. The next

thing we want to do is get this yoke in, which is basically rods inside this, so Oscar if you can put a little bit of oil on here for me please.


All the way round, that goes inside there, at the back. It is a bit stiff, so you have to kind of jiggle it a bit. That’s it there now there is a lock nut that goes, so there’s a little bolt that goes that holds it in, let’s get that lined up properly.


Now what I want to do next is actually get the Pistons in. Let's have a look at the Pistons, so one thing I want to check, I want to show you as well,  you just bring this over,  what you want is, you want that piston to ride it needs to go in that hole,  and needs to be a firm fit. But it really should, kind of it needs to seal and you want it kind of to go down on its own weight if you see what I mean. Like that, then you know you've got a good fit. And pull it up I bet you'll hear a little pop listen.


Now the two phosphor bronze bushes they were but over there Oscar, the big ones. Now we need to remember, this in here we've got this recess that goes toward the back and the other of the smaller phosphor bronze bush lies in there.


What we want, if you see we've got these lips on here, and they need to go together, so, like that okay, and that one on that side, yeah but basically those two lips go toward the middle you can see what I mean.


Now the other thing to note, if you look at that, that piston is closer to this edge then it is to this edge, can you see that, yeah, yeah and again the closer bit goes to the middle.


So that goes in there, and then the other one, goes on these two engines yeah okay yeah. So basically now we should see the two pistons are basically as close together as they can be yeah, with the shoulders on the bushes riding between them. Right next to up then is to get these Pistons in.


So now to get the Pistons in again you want to make sure that we've got this side where the lip is, where the recesses is, that that's facing towards the back now. What you do is you hold the Pistons up right like this so that the shaft of the pistons are actually pointing up. Slowly lower them down and you kind of have to, unfortunately you have to align everything, it's very fiddly and a bit intricate but it is possible.


Well I think what I might have to do is move this yoke forward a bit in order to get it  and then push it back once it's in.  I think this is where I’ve gone wrong. That now can push forward you see though now we should be able to get the Pistons in. Goodness gracious this really is quite tight.  So we managed to get one, one side in and the other side doesn't seem to want to, right so it's just a bit of a jiggle but you can actually get them in.


Now that Bush is now still in the back so the bush or the PTO shaft support Bush is still in its right place. This piston needs to move around, so we might have to lift it slightly, there we go and there go. Right, so those two Pistons, so the tabs are on the bottom of the Pistons are facing down and the cam is riding on that shaft at the back. These are the things you need to watch for basically, and it's popped out again, we just lift that slightly.


Okay and then what we do is we push this yoke back like that and then we just tighten this bolt up, this guard bolt, and that should hold the cam in the bush at the back. Okay that’s nice and tight. Ok so that is the Pistons in, now what we want to do is get these two metal rods and just get these knocked in from the side, this seems a bit tight, that’s interesting.




Right so that goes on that way, you can see how it lines up in with the profile of the pump but also the most important thing you've got a dowel there then that goes over these two holes here which is the where the oil comes through so they all need to be lined up.


Now we're going to put it bit of oil over the top.



Right now the tricky part is getting this side cover on,  you've got to get those Pistons into this hole pull into the each of these two holes and you've got to get this dowel into that whole thing, so it can be a little bit tricky, but you essentially just need to play with it jiggle it move them about, try and line them up as best you can and then once you've got it, that went in very easy, huh! Once you got it lined up make sure the dowel’s in the right place gaskets in the right place push it together and that will, will go in quite easily.


So right let's get these bolts in just to hold it in place. So Oscar there's one there.

Two, one longs and short ones.

Correct, so there's two long ones and two short ones on each side you if you look at the body of the valve cover you'll see that that side is slightly thicker hence the slightly longer bolt.




So that's the, the main part of pump done you want to make sure that everything is nice and loose and they still can move. Pop a little bit of oil onto the pistons.


We're gonna give it a little turn, which side, which side would it be coming out of?

So basically again, this is the back of the tractor, the back of the pump, so what we want to do is get that in, and try and give this a twirl now. We can see everything moving relatively freely.


Ok see what we’ll do, just turn that up, hopefully the camera can see,  yep. You can see the Pistons riding up and down it and you can hear the pumping action. There we go, so happy with that.


I wanted to show you this is the relief, sorry the control valve, and you see how that shaft has been bent - this is the old one.  So bring the control valve, behind the grease.


Now this controls valve obviously comes preassembled with the T piece on it, but we actually have to disassemble it because, or do we, hang on, sorry, anyway this shaft goes in there.

And… somehow.. so, it seems to me we've got a very minor tolerance issue there. And that control valve certainly seems to fit nicely into the pump, that’s definitely the right one.


Ok we've actually landed up disassembling this,  which is just it's not a bad thing because you get to see how it all kind of goes together as well,  but essentially what I found was that the back end of this, of the main body was a little bit there's a tiny little bur in there that was preventing this shaft from fitting but you can see there now that fits nicely.


So to put it all back together basically you've got this is which is your main valve that falls through there and obviously that's what seals it. Now the way to kind of do this is put something up its bum just to hold it in place while you put the spring on like that, yeah and then this T piece goes over the top like that, and that means you can hold it down,  and then there's a clip, now I'm going to reuse the old clip because it’s a bit smarter than the new clip. And that sits, sits in there and then on this face you've actually got little indentations and that clip will sit in one of those indentations nicely like that.


So that's that's the reassembly of that part, real straightforward. Now to get this shaft in we just pop that circlip back over the shaft like that, that goes back in there, and then that circlip you basically just, obviously using a circlip pliers, just squeeze that to, just hang on we’ve got a bit of dirt in there, we don't want any dirt in there do.

No, we’ve just taken apart and cleaned the whole thing.

Yeah so we just squeeze that together - it is a little bit fiddly but basically just want to get that circlip back in and that holds the whole thing together basically.


Okay sadly the circlip has broken, he was obviously a little bit stressed and shattered as I was trying to put it in, which is a bit annoying. But I've also worked out what does what this arm is actually for. Essentially it sits in here and it runs through the pump and it actually engages with this yoke that we put in earlier. And as the pump turns that yoke goes backwards and forwards and it causes basically causes this control valve to wiggle like that and I believe or I understand that's to do with the fact that the there was a problem with the earlier type where these control those this sleeve would get basically gets stuck in this bushing I mean I would make it very difficult for it to travel backwards and forwards and basically the solution to that was basically just to wiggle it, constantly basically,  and that stops it from, from seizing in, in that in their sleeve so, yeah so that's what this is.  Basically a modification that was made at some point I don't know exactly when but sadly the circlip there goes in there has, has broken so I'll have to try and find a replacement so to measure that one up and try and can't find a replacement for that.


So look the final job for the pump would be to install this pressure release valve so basically that goes through the shield which we explained last time actually stops this thing from blowing down and disturbing all the dirt that was settled at the bottom here. I'm not going to put it in now finally because obviously we still need to get this control valve in, in and I just don't want that in the way we do it.


But essentially just to show you, you know basically that just screws in there you also got this plate that sits in there and obviously you tighten it up and job done. So look that's the rebuilding of the pump, that's complete or as complete as we can make it for now, so we'll leave all that there to one side.


The only other job we could do would be to install these caps, the cap nuts, cap bolts that go in the in the end here. Really I'm not doing that because we need to I need to get some copper washers just to replace these to make to make sure you get a good enough strong seal there but that's essentially the job done. So thank you for your help Oscar.


Right everybody well thanks very much for watching thanks for following along and bearing with us. It's a bit of a fiddly job as you saw in at times but it is it's also quite a rewarding job to do and of course there pump will now operate at its optimum with all those new parts in it.


So again the parts are all supplied by Anglo Agriparts and so thank you to them for supplying the parts. Thank you to them for supplying for the sponsorship and of course we look forward to obviously a long association with them,  and of course you guys can help supporting them, give them a call, go on the website and of course if you need anything that's not on the website I’d encourage you to give them a call because I'm sure that if they can they will try and help and find the parts that you need.


So we've just made this little contraption with a bit of cardboard that Anglo sent us and a roll of paper some wood and our brains. So what we can do is pull some out, and then we’ve got paper!


So again thanks for joining us, hope that you've enjoyed it and we'll see you on the next one. Cheers for now'
