Hi, I'm renewing the draft control on a.
Ferguson tef 20 that was totally seized
and parts badly rusted. There was no
gasket originally it seems on the
triangle plate that bolts to the lift
head. (arrow in pic)

I'm thinking of putting one in, it would
have no ill effect on the system I'm
sure?
Also on the setting of the draft and lift
is there anything specific or is it a
trial and error.

Cut one from a cereal box , there is no oil pressure behind it which is why it rusts up so much . The UK built ones rely on an occasional spray from the oil pressure relief valve for lubrication . The only real purpose of the gasket is to keep water out .

No problem, yes to keep the rain and out
is why I added it. Just had the felt
washer around the plunger guide which
wasn't great.

Grease the felt really well , work the grease into the fibres with your fingers and make sure it's completely saturated , a better chance of it repelling water for longer . Certainly an area where design was faulty .
