MF fitted those type outlets to the 1100 series tractors, sadly, not many of those in breakers yards over here, but plenty in America.

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.
