* Hydraulic Tipper Pipe Bolt

Posted on July 8th, 2015 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.

A couple of days ago I had an email in from a Mr S.Blair. Or Maybe is’t a MRS S.Blair wife of Tony! Who knew the former MP’s wife restores Ferguson tractors. anyway I digress. Here was the original question.

A few days ago I saw a piece on your website mentioning the tipping pipe outlet from the hydraulic pump.  I have recently removed the old brackets and hoses etc. from an unused MIL loader and now I have the dilemma of sourcing a blanking adaptor to plug the gap safely and securely.  I am convinced I saw your post mention that you had done the same, and possibly where you got it from and its size?  I think it said 1/2 BSF?

I cant seem to find the post on the website ever since and hope you wouldn’t mind helping me out with the details etc?


Well I’m pleased to say Yes I can Help. Below is a picture of said bolt, it vital statistics are, 1/2″ UNF thread, about 1/2″ of thread length. There is a shoulder at the bottom and the top has a 30 degree chamfer on it. I hope that helps? I think you could get away with the correct length bolt with a Dowty washer at the bottom. if you have a lathe and you could add the chamfer to the top even better.
