I am putting a electric power lift on my MF10 and there is a switch that raises and lowers it. I am not sure where it goes. I would assume the installtion instructions would have told you where to drill the hole. I would guess it went on the dash or down on the plate by the hood latch. I saw a photo of a MF10 on this site the other day with a hole in the dash to the left of the steering wheel and down a little. Does anybody know for sure?

I am not sure of the correct location but I am sure someone will be by shortly with the answer.

I have a mf12 that originally had the electric/hydraulic lift. The electric pump/lift cylinder were missing and replaced with a manual lift handle before I got it but the control switch and solenoid are still there. Here's some pictures of my dash/switch. Hope it helps. I would love to see some pics of yours when you get it set up, I've never seen a complete power lift on a mf10/12.

Hey Dan, could you do me a favor?
Could you measure left edge of the dash and bottom of the dash to center of the hole.
That would let everyone know where to drill the hole to mount it.

As soon as I saw these pictures I knew I seen that "up dwn" decal before, looked around at my old Massey parts in the garage and found this.

Hey Dan, how about some pictures and some information about what you are installing.
