    MF35 cross shaft fit a Fergie T20?

    Not able to give an answer to your query but I doubt it. We completely wore out the top cover and shaft on a TEF with 20+yrs of scraping. We managed to buy a complete TVO backend and then put the top cover and pump on the TEF as most of the TVO ones got put on light duties when the diesels came...

    Ford ranger locking nut key
