    Massey Ferguson 7495

    Hi fellows.
    I am having troubles with a vario transmission on a Ferguson. I am wondering about any of you got a diagram over the transmission, valves and sensors. The local Ferguson shop is only interested in selling a new transmisson and claim they cant repair, or work at vario boxes, not even put a tester on it, which I believe is absoloutely crap. I believe they are told of AGCO to keep away from the boxes and just selling new ones. a new one is about 80000 Danish Kroner, sitting on the floor. A lot of money to put in an old tractor , when I believe it is a leaking o ring ,or a stuck valve somewhere for the clutch. Any help or diagrams are appreciated. Thank you.

    Talk nicely to your AGCO dealer who should be able to register you for agcopartsbook.com - at least you can see whats inside a bit





    Finding a shop manual won't be so easy unless someone starts copying and selling digital ones on eBay eventually?

    Hi folks.
    As I have been telling a little about before, I have had an issue with the vario in the transmission on a MF 7495. Everywhere I have asked or wanted some information it has been like a national secret how it works, or maybe noone knows much about them. All I have been told is that the only option is to park the tractor in a MF garrage, let them replace the vario and pay whatever the price is. In this situation and in the closest MF garrage they came up with a price about 15000 pound, a lot of money for an old tractor. I decided it was worth to do something about it myself and started taking it apart, worst senarium would be that it coud not drive and the best would be to make it go again. I was surprised how easy it was to take apart. 5-6 hours and the cabin was off. Take off the top of the gearbox, just a plate boltet on and under the plate the vario is sitting, fairly easy to undo and take out and when turning around you could, just by looking at it, watch the broken gaskets. I got the new gaskets and some other parts when it was apart, put it all back together again, got it callibrated and the tractor is driving as good as new again. I have spent about 40 hours with the tractor and about 1000 pound in parts.....It was deffentli worth doing that work and I am not afraid of doing it again.

    A local engineer specialises in electro hydraulics has done a couple of fendt vario transmissions that dealers wanted to replace,he stripped them and re sealed them,they worked perfectly!
