I finally did the first oil cange on the TO20 yesterday and I have a question. The service manual says there is a spring above the can (cover) that the screen/filter go up into. It seems to be saying that the can should come out the bottom. It will definately not come out the bottom and I do not feel a spring above it. I can push it up and it seems to come up against something solid. I don't see replacement springs available. Since I am going to drop the pan to clean it I can stick one above the can at that time. Does anyone know diameter and length so I can get one locally? Seems that all the spring does is hold the can down to the bottom of the pan. Thank You! Jack

Does your tractor have the oil filter on the right side of the engine in a metal canister with a long bolt running through the middle? If so, then it is the same as my TO-35. Mine doesn't have a spring in it, but the filter will come out of it if you rotate the bolt. I don't see a need for a spring, as the filter seems long enough to touch the top of the canister, at least on my tractor.

No, mine is the TO20. The oil filter is up inside the oil pan. What a lovely piece of engineering that is! Jack

You got it - spring holds can against oil pan. From what I remember it"s about 2" long & a loose fit over the stud (making it about about 5/8" ID)

Thanks, I measured the tube and it's 9/16th. I picked up a couple of springs that looked like they might work so when I drop the pan this weekend I'll be able to put the right one in. Once I finish I'll post the final spring size that worked in case anyone else runs into the problem. Best regards, Jack

Gramps, you CAN get that spring from your local AGCO (Massey) dealer. I bought one a few years back as I found mine was missing also. A couple bucks.
Your right, that spring goes between the upper cover can, and the stop on the bottom of the center crank bearing. The spring helps hold the filter down against the oil pan when your driving your TO off steep cliffs, flipping it upside down, etc. For normal straight driving on level ground, the weight of the cover can does okay. My guess is there are a LOT of TO's running around without that spring.

The spring you are missing, I suppose is the same as I found in my Z120 engine. It's about 3 inces wide and 6 inces high. I suppose it is ment to have a filter of some kind around it. If you mail me on berild@online.no, i can send you a picture of it
