Massey Ferguson is a company that makes tractors and other agricultural machinery.
I think that you are referring to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Apparently, you need to read it.
It DOES say that you cannot have your entire vehicle warranty voided because of a modification that only affects certain areas of the vehicle. But it DOES NOT say that you can modify your vehicle anyway you like and not have warranty claims denied on systems that are impacted by those modifications.
The manufacturer cannot require you to use its replacement parts as a condition to keep the warranty in force. However, a manufacturer can insist that any parts used are equivalent to OEM parts. Your opinion may be that a marine filter is as good or better but, clearly, a marine filter is not equivalent to the OEM fuel filter.
Good luck if you have a fuel system problem and try to get warranty coverage with a non-equivalent filter installed.
