Before doing anything be sure all pressure is released from the cylinder. Loosen or remove the hydraulic lines on each end of the hydraulic cylinder as this will allow all pressure to escape. You may be able to unscrew the gland without removing either end of the hydraulic cylinder assembly from its end connections. In this case we needed the room so we pulled the pin from the piston rod end. Using the new tool, the gland is unscrewed from the hydraulic cylinder. In some cases a slight tap or bump with a hammer may be applied to the tool to break the gland loose. Once loosened, the gland should unscrew easily and pull away from the hydraulic cylinder if there is room on the piston rod.

With the gland removed, pull the piston rod from the cylinder. Large hydraulic cylinders may have to be supported to keep them straight while removing the piston rod. A winch is sometimes used for large cylinders but is not required in most cases. Try to keep the piston rod from falling into the dirt or against other metal objects when it pulls out of the cylinder.
When the piston rod is free put the rod end back into its pin connection and unscrew the retaining bolt which holds the piston to the rod. In extreme cases this bolt may have to be heated if a thread locking substance has been used in a prior rebuilding process. Try not to heat the piston no more than necessary and this should work well. Place the parts in order and take a photo or two for later reference if needed. To do this a "U shaped " Tool is required.To see the tool how it looks.Please click on the link directly.This tool can not be easily available with auto parts store.You will have to check out or will have to get it made.From the part store.Show then the picture of the tool for exact tool. http://s3.hubimg.com/u/1753494_f260.jpg --------------- The pin originally has 5/8 threads on it. ------------
If you want the service manual for your tractor.Its available. click this link directly:--- http://www.ssbtractor.com/tractor_manual_display.cgi?m=Massey%20Ferguson&o=MF%20255 ------------- one more link:-- http://www.repairmanual.com/online/massey-ferguson-mf255-mf265-mf270-mf275-mf290-tractor-manual-mf-43/ -----------

Broken steering pin lock


As the pin is in the bracket on the end of the switch you may be able to manipulate it if you can get the key and barrel out of the bracket around the steering column. Otherwise you will have to have the bracket removed from the column and fit a new one .

How to remove key unit from steering column 1986 F150 Ford


COUTESY OF EXPERT "C17HYDRO"
With Key
  1. Disconnect the battery ground.
  2. On tilt columns, remove the upper extension shroud by unsnapping the shroud from the retaining clip at the 9 o'clock position.
  3. Remove the trim shroud halves.
  4. Unplug the wire connector at the key warning switch.
  5. Place the shift lever in PARK and turn the key to ON.
  6. Place a 1/8 in. wire pin in the hole in the casting surrounding the lock cylinder and depress the retaining pin while pulling out on the cylinder.
  7. When installing the cylinder, turn the lock cylinder to the RUN position and depress the retaining pin, then insert the lock cylinder into its housing in the flange casting. Assure that the cylinder is fully seated and aligned in the interlocking washer before turning the key to the OFF position. This will allow the cylinder retaining pin to extend into the cylinder cast housing hole.
  8. The remainder of installation is the reverse of removal.

This section is for a NON-TILT with no key or non-functioning cylinder:
Fixed Columns
  1. Disconnect the battery ground.
  2. Remove the steering wheel.
  3. Remove the turn signal lever.
  4. Remove the column trim shrouds.
  5. Unbolt the steering column and lower it carefully.
  6. Remove the ignition switch and warning buzzer and pin the switch in the LOCK position.
  7. Remove the turn signal switch.
  8. Remove the snapring and T-bolt nuts that retain the flange casting to the column outer tube.
  9. Remove the flange casting, upper shaft bearing, lock cylinder, ignition switch actuator and the actuator rod by pulling the entire assembly over the end of the steering column shaft.
  10. Remove the lock actuator insert, the T-bolts and the automatic transmission indicator insert, or, with manual transmissions, the key release lever.
  11. Upon reassembly, the following parts must be replaced with new parts:
    • Flange
    • Lock cylinder assembly
    • Steering column lock gear
    • Steering column lock bearing
    • Steering column upper bearing retainer
    • Lock actuator assembly
  1. Assembly is a reversal of the disassembly procedure. It is best to install a new upper bearing. Check that the vehicle starts only in PARK and NEUTRAL.

This section is for TILT and no key or non-functioning cylinder:

Tilt Columns
  1. Disconnect the battery ground.
  2. Remove the steering column shrouds.
  3. Using masking tape, tape the gap between the steering wheel hub and the cover casting. Cover the entire circumference of the casting. Cover the seat and floor area with a drop-cloth.
  4. Pull out the hazard switch and tape it in a downward position.
  5. The lock cylinder retaining pin is located on the outside of the steering column cover casting adjacent to the hazard flasher button.
  6. Tilt the steering column to the full up position and prepunch the lock cylinder retaining pin with a sharp punch.
  7. Using a 1/8 in. drill bit, mounted in a right angle drive drill adapter, drill out the retaining pin, going no deeper than 1/2 in. (12.7mm).
  8. Tilt the column to the full down position. Place a chisel at the base of the ignition lock cylinder cap and using a hammer break away the cap from the lock cylinder.
  9. Using a 3/8 in. drill bit, drill down the center of the ignition lock cylinder key slot about 13/4 in. (44mm), until the lock cylinder breaks loose from the steering column cover casting.
  10. Remove the lock cylinder and the drill shavings.
  11. Remove the steering wheel.
  12. Remove the turn signal lever.
  13. Remove the turn signal switch attaching screws.
  14. Remove the key buzzer attaching screw.
  15. Remove the turn signal switch up and over the end of the column, but don't disconnect the wiring.
  16. Remove the 4 attaching screws from the cover casting and lift the casting over the end of the steering shaft, allowing the turn signal switch to pass through the casting. The removal of the casting cover will expose the upper actuator. Remove the upper actuator.
  17. Remove the drive gear, snapring and washer from the cover casting along with the upper actuator.
  18. Clean all components and replace any that appear damaged or worn.
  19. Installation is the reverse of removal. Check for proper operation.
