Hello, anyone know where I could get this bracket including the swiviling things (as pictures) to hold hydraulic pipes on the back of a MF, thanks

The mild steel plate bracket was fairly common (it was cheap), but the aluminium castings & swivel balls are like gold dust. I have some, but they are destined for something.

In truth outside of the Stoneleigh fleet tractors seen in brochures & also Dealer Demonstrator vehicles, I wonder how many Masseys were actually fitted with them. The MF spool valve installations weren't cheap to buy in the 60s & 70s. As suggested above, the same fittings were used on David Brown tractors in the mid-late 70s when they were fitted with spool valves. Those were/are much more common & you may well find them in Breakers Yards.

The pics you've posted: Are they from US Massey workshop manuals? Because I'm not aware that the top cover-mounted 'Cessna' spool valves were actually offered in the UK. The UK ones mounted on the LH footplate ona dedicated cast bracket (originally) & a mild steel bracket later on.
