Forgot to mention...got a great Freebie today too. When I mentioned having Massey's, he gave me what's left of an MF16. All sheet metal is gone, as well as the engine, which was why it was parked. But it has a complete hydro/differential, so I'll have a backup hydro when I need it!
Just ordered new set of valves for the Ford, plus there was a perfect driveshaft tunnel cover on ebay, so I snagged it. I'll gather parts & lay them back until restore time comes.


Daniel, Do you still have the MF16? Maybe you want to get rid of it? Let me know. Did you ever do anymore with the Ford project?

What is there of it, I still have the MF16. Basically just the frame rails, dash tower, hydro & diff. I need to keep the hydro & diff for spares/spare parts.

Thanks Daniel, What hydro did that tractor use? Was it in anything else? I would love to have a 14 or 16 MF someday.

The Massey hydro?.....if so, it is Sundstrand. The Ford had an Eaton. Both have the Peerless 2520? ( I think that's the model #) series 2-speed final.

With respect to the original trade of a Troybilt for the Ford,did you have a spare Troybilt or take your chances at the dinner table? The women in my family are very partial to their Troybilts. :bigrofl: :bigrofl: :bigrofl:

I have a newer Troybilt, much easier to handle than the old beast.

Hi Everyone newby here but I have a Jacobson 12 HP Hydro I am selling. Hi/low hydro tractor with the deck and snowblower. I believe it needs some minor wiring. The PTO just stopped working but there are wire nuts twisting some wires together. Pics available and once I figure out how I plan on posting it in the classifieds. $600.00 for everything as is here in MN The snowblower has been restored by the previous owner-the mower deck looks like it has been used very little. I also have I believe its called the mule drive. Sorry fairly new to this. I have bad knees and find the foot control for forward and reverse all but impossible for me to use. John
