I am a newbie here and have a few questions. First of all this site is fantastic I have been doing some reading on here and it is great to have a place with this amount of information and documentation of different projects and issues that others have been through and taking the time to help others.
I had the opportunity to buy a MF 12, but I dropped the ball and it sold. I saw a posting yesterday for a MF 7 hydrostatic and spoke to the guy last night. It turned out to be the father of an old childhood friend. He said that he had bought the tractor a few months ago and it appeared that the previous owner had put a 12 HP motor on it, but had gotten into trouble and not completed it. He said that he had not started it, due to the connection plug being different. I am assuming he meant the plug from the ignition to the battery/starter? Has anyone else done this before? Based off of my reading it may not be a bad thing based off of the issues with the 7 HP motors. Are there any other issues I should be aware of in doing this? I am just wondering if I am getting myself into more than I bargained for.
Thank you in advance,
