Still not running but already shopping for add ons...
Posted June 01, 2010 - 11:45 AM
I talked to a guy that does work for my company that restores JD 110's for fun about it and he reccommend a quick polish with a hone and a new set of larger rings. So just for kicks I stopped in at my local lawn mower shop to get a price and man was I suprised! She couldn't give me an exact price but she figured it to be about $43 for a set of .010" over stock rings.
I will try to get some pictures to see what everybody on here thinks but until then I was wondering what you guys thought about theese accesories.
MasseyFerguson Front Tractor BLADE
Dual Rear Wheels for Garden Tractor
I don't NEED theese of course because it doesn't even run yet but I figured a little forward thinking couldn't hurt either. The set of duals is cool, however, I would just end up selling the transaxle because I would have no use for it. Do they look like they would fit?
Also does the blade look like one that is for or would fit my MF12?
Any help is greatly appreciated!

thats the right blade
i was wondering the same thing, because mine smokes, but i did a leak down test and will need some valve work (grind and guides) so no use for the .30 piston i got

Many diffs/axles cannot handle the extra load on them that the dual wheels impose. If it wasn't offered from the factory, then it probably is not meant to be. The only tractor I'm aware of that offered dual wheels from the factory are Gravely 2 wheelers.
Simplicity also offered them from the factory,and Bolens also had a dual wheel kit offered in their 1963 catalog.
