Hi Steamfire,
I'm hoping that you are still around as this post was from 2010. I have an mf30 and have trouble getting any parts, specifically the two alloy cam and lever on the lift shaft (under the gear box cover) they are held by pinch bolts, I found both had cracked at the pinch bolt so wouldn't maintain a setting,got them both welded and got the hydraulics working but now they have cracked again.any ideas where to get any parts? also would like a hydraulics seal kit.
thanks for any help,cheers mark

We had a French made MF 30 parked up next to us last Sunday. All going well for him he will be at this weekends Yesteryear Truck Show at Wauchope. He had fun finding the part that sits on top of the radiator grille and found that someone nearby had a mould to remake it out of plastic not the original alloy. His has been re painted and is in excellent condition.

One of our Club members has this very fine example of a MF30. This was taken at last years Taree Show Day.

Hi Barkly59,
The other option is what I did when rebuilding the David Brown Cropmaster. I needed the torque values of the bolts and a mate said go look up torque specs for that size bolt and it worked a treat. Later I found all the settings in a manual I forgot about and they were the same value. So that's another option for you.

Thanks cobbadog I got onto that site that Ianoz gave me and got the info needed but like you said there is a lot of info on high tensile etc bolt torque values available on the net . That perkins A4-107 engine was used a lot in small boats and parts are easy to source. Cheers.
