I'm trying to track down the tools required to adjust my lift cover. The tractor is a MF 283 (Brazil). I've searched the forums and found a couple drawings. I haven't been able to contact the members with them. I'm wondering if they will work for my tractor. The following are the part numbers from my repair manual. I emailed OTC and the customer service rep provided with some current numbers. If anyone knows where I can get the tools or has any other advice I'd appreciate it!

MT0269 - Linkage Gage Fixture
MT0690 - Quadrant Lever Setting Tool
MT6089/MT6088 - Bushing Kit
Alternative part numbers may be: MT 2267 MU6088 MU6089

The only numbers showing current are MT0269A and MT2267. These tools are only available to AGCO Dealers. No aftermarket versions of the tools are available.

Hi, some of my sketches of 100 series tools are floating around on
YT MF and may be are needed for your 283 which is not brought into
the U.K. we have different numbers for the tools here. If you can post
any pictures of what you are looking for I might be able to help.

Just the guy I was hoping to talk to! I think the tools are the same for all the 200 series. I've uploaded some pictures from a catalog and my repair manual that have pictures of the tools and part numbers that I'm looking for.
I'm not clear on the size of the bushings 6088 and 6089 or the dimensions of tool 0253 used to hold the lift arms in position. Can you provide any information on that?

MFN 1080-D aka MT0269 Link Gage Fixture
MT2267 aka MT6088 and MT6089 Bushing Kit
Part number MT0690 would be great to have as well but I've had no luck finding it.

Is there any reason why no one has made these tools in the aftermarket? It seems that there's a need for them.

For some reason the forum will not allow me to upload the pictures I have. Can I email them to you or do you know how I can upload the pictures?

I figured it out. My account is new so I am unable to upload photos. I have sent a request to the moderators to enable photo upload privileges for my account.

I think you need 10 posts before you can post a picture.

Did you ever find any of the sketches of the lift cover adjustment tools? I'm getting ready to tear my 283 down and rebuild it. Any help would be appreciated!
