Im a blue (Ford) guy trying to help my best friend with his
girlfriends family MF35 gas. Its in another state, so I cant
just bop over and help. My question: does the I&T manual
(MF-14) give directions for anything special about changing
the water pump? Yes, Ive already said that a manual is a
good idea, regardless. Ive also done some searches for him
on this forum and YouTube and have forwarded those links to
him.

For those wondering: Tractor gauge is showing overheating
so theyve parked it. No white smoke, no change in engine
operation. Ive outlined the usual suspects for them to check:
thermostat, radiator hoses, radiator both inside & the fins,
check for free flow and/or bubbles in radiator while running,
and water pump wear. However, Im also pushing for water
pump to be replaced, especially given the age of the tractor
and unknown past (only been in family about 5 yrs). So,
would like to see them get the I&T manual, particularly if it
gives Continental water pump help.

Thanks.

I can't say what that I&T manual has for info, so no help for you there.

There is a Massey Ferguson MF35 service manual on line at https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1014005/Massey-Ferguson-Mf35.html . Also a copy of an Operator's manual at https://archive.org/details/massey_ferguson_model_MF_35_owners_manual_ .

I would suggest using a non-contact (infra-red) thermometer to check the gauge, it could be bad. Check the temperature right where the gauge thermocouple goes into the engine and several other places, like both sides of the thermostat and across and down the radiator to see that the radiator is carrying coolant throughout it not just down a restricted path.

Thank you. My friend has an IR thermometer so I passed
along your suggestion. Also appreciate the manual links very
much.

3000OH, I know it's late in the game and I hope your friend got it figured out. I'm an old "blue" guy myself. A couple years ago my 1966 2000 diesel began over heating while bush hogging a field of tall grass. Since not knowing the full history of the tractor, like your friend, I decided to replace the thermostat and water pump. After that, it still over heated.
I pulled the radiator, took it to one of only 3 shops in my area to have cleaned and tested. Turns out the radiator core was bad and couldn't be repaired for less than the cost of a new one.
Bought a new radiator and installed, engine ran at the proper temp from then on. I sold it to a neighbor a few months ago and he loves it.

Roger
