It has a different electric clutch on it and the pulley size is different, 1" dia smaller.
Clutch on the right is an original, off of my MF14, same as MF16
The original clutch does not fit the 16hp engine, crank is smaller dia and the block does not have the mounting holes in the same spot as the original 16hp would of.
The crank on my 16hp measures 1" near the block and 7/8" near the tip, it almost looks like someone ground it down???
My 16hp block is a K341, 16hp, as it has 10 head bolts (14s have 9 bolts) but there are no threaded holes in the block to line up with the 4 mounting bolts for the clutch. What it has is 1 bolt to attach the clutch to the block, the setup is mickey mouse to me.
My 16hp crank and clutch setup.
The way it's suppose to be, my MF14s crank measures 1 - 1/8" dia.
Since I plan on using this tractor for different tasks, grass cutting included, I want to have the right RPMs off the PTO, with what I have the pulley is more than 1" smaller in dia. only the inside one, smaller one of the 2, lines up for the mower deck and snowblower. Blade tip speed will be less and it won't cut as good.
What to do? That is the problem.
Reluctantly I think I'm going to have to put the 14hp motor in the MF16.
The 14hp smokes constantly and you can hear a slight knock in it. I think I'll take it apart, see what it needs and rebuild it.
Unless someone close by has a K341 out of a Massey MF16 that I can buy I see no choice.
So I guess my MF16 becomes a MF14
