I was thinking I would like to get a decal made to put on my battery. I wonder if anyone has a photo of the original MF battery that was in a MF10. I don't remember what it looked like but I think it just had a big MF on it. In the 1980's Massey came out with the Power Parts trying to merchandise parts for all AG products as many of the other tractor manufactures were. The had their own logo but it was different that the logo before that.
If anyone has any info on this please let me know.

I found it. It was in the owners manual. I will get this decal reproduced.

You know... if you get them made, I might just be interested in one of them to place on my battery.

I doubt this will hold up on a battery, but in the antique tool restoration area, we use printable waterslide decals. You can run them through a printer, spray a special coating over them, and then apply them to the tool. I am just not sure if a waterslide would hold up for long.

I will get a few extra made, I don't think they will be very expensive.

I got the battery decals from my sign guy and they look nice. They are vinyl and they even have the little circle you pull out for the date, be careful when you pull the covering off so those don't come off with it. I bought a new Exide battery for the GT and pulled the old decals off and cleaned the area and put these back on. The top decal is made as close to original as I could. I took it from some photos that were very hard to see and from my memory which is not all that great. The thing about it no one will probably know and if they do question you and more than one of you have these decals just say "well so and so has one just like it". If two people have the same thing it has to be right. I will continue to try and find an original to see how close I got but for now this is the best I can do. I had him make a few extras as some of you asked if you could have them. I will take $10.00 for a set including postage. If you want one PM me with your address and I will send them. I hope it is ok to sell these on this site maybe I should have read the rules again first.
