Like the title states who else has a Massey Ferguson 275? I haven't gotten a operation manual yet and am in the process of rebuilding the engine. But I am curious what levers/pedals do what?
I have 3 slide levers right of seat, one lever kind of under seat that has 3 positions (I think), 2 shift? Levers on floor. Along with a pedal on back right floor, 2 pedals the n front right and one pedal on left front.

I have a MF275. Great tractor.

As you are sitting in the seat:
Left pedal is the clutch. Two pedal on the right are for the brakes. The pedal on the right rear of the foot board is the traction lock.

Levers on the right of the seat are likely as follows: The closest to the seat is probably for a remote hydraulic cylinder that will have hookups on the back of the
tractor. The other 2 are for the 3 point hookup. First is to raise and lower the 3 point. The last one is to set the draft control for the 3 point.

On the right side below the seat is also a slide control to adjust how fast the 3 point raises and lowers.

On the left side under the seat will be a lever to control the pto.

Gear shift levers are out of the top of the transmission. Left lever will be numbered gears and reverse. Right lever is high and low.

That is how mine is setup. A picture would be helpful to determine what you have and don't have compared to mine.

Don't expect that Traction Lock to work as soon as you get it running. They get stuck pretty quick when left outside. A bigger hammer will break the pin or worse, use lots of penetrating juice. The transmission/hydraulic system can get contaminated with water through the rubber boots on the shift levers, I keep a plastic bucket over the levers when left to the elements.

Hi,
One thing not mentioned in the above, you will need plenty of patience!!!!! When you start trying to free it I have found that the easiest way is to sit on the seat and have a piece of rope around the pedal from your hand. This was you can apply downward pressure to the diff-lock pedal (that's what its called on this side of the pond) and then pull it back up with the rope. It will need to be completely free so that it disengages on its own. There is risk of damage to drive components if it remains engaged especially if the tractor is used on concrete or tarmac.

DavidP, how should the diff lock pedal disengage? Should you need to hold it down with your heel the whole time you need it engaged? Or will it pop out as soon as there is no torque (stop spinning/pulling)?? You mention that it needs to be free so it can disengage on its own. Also a 275 owner.....and love it.

Thanks in advance...
