Hey folks,

 

I have a 1975 Massey Ferguson 8 that I purchased a few years ago from a family member that is in great shape mechanically and cosmetically. The only problem I have is the parking brake. Would anyone have pictures of the parking brake linkage from the control cable in the dash to where it mounts internally to set the brake. It has been disconnected since I bought the tractor and I believe that maybe the parts for the parking portion of the brake itself are missing. The control cable ends with a 90 degree bend on the end of the cable under the center of the tractor and that is all I have. The diagrams from the AGCO parts books aren't the greatest for this and I'd rather fabricate what I can than buy parts that may or may not be available. Thanks!

Both my tractors must be earlier. I dont think there is any parking brake on the dash on either one? I will have to look.

Will that is one sweet 8 you have there!

Regards,
