I sure hope not! I'd give him 400 tops. one I couldn't believe the rust. and second How the heck did the thing get that smashed up?

 

Not to mention.....where the heck is the hood? Is it there and I just missed it?

I haven't found the owners manual yet. But AGCO has all the parts break downs and parts lists for the tractor and all of the attachments. If you never went to there site, just select "Guest", then next page type "14 Tractor" then select Massey ferguson. Next page has a list of all the parts diagrams for the GT and attachments. http://www.agcoparts...on=NorthAmerica

 

I am also wondering if the 520 would be close to the same as the 620 as far as mounting and the operators manual?

Fantastic looking 14. I think you may have the Deal of the Week all wrapped up.

I see Chris mentioned an oil change, bu I might suggest moving it up the list a little...

If the PO has been over choking and repetitive "choking it to death" caused by an inverted choke operation, you may have gotten some gas down the oil.

 

Just completed the #1 task on the list of things to do....OIL CHANGE. I don't know what you guys were talking about.......this oil looks great. Right?

 

New Oil

Darker the better right? Thanks for helping me prioritize. Glad to have the old oil out and the new in. :thumbs:

 

Now to get the blower on and hooked up and I just might be able to throw some snow tonight in the comfort of my cab. If not I have my trust Case 444 sitting there ready to go. :D

Looks like that oil was broken in some time ago. That's about what my oil in the FF looked like. It's purring along fine now.

Hey guys, I got the snow thrower on the MF-14 and started to blow some snow and then I threw a belt. I can't seem to keep it on and I can't find a manual to help. HELP! Any ideas for me?

I looked around online yesterday, and couldn't find one either.

I have a paper copy in the shop, but no scanner. Sorry.

 

It's been 2 years since I had mine on, but from what I remember, that belt

tension had to be good and tight.

I would never have thought of that mac, thanks for the idea. Let the bidding begin..........I have another 1 3/4 quarts to auction off too.

Well, I got the belt tension figured out. Finally after realizing the belt had slipped off one of the pulleys on the snow thrower I was able to get to tightening the belts.

 

Don't laugh............before I realized that the plate in front of the main pulley on the snow blower was removable I started working on taking the hood/grill assembly off thinking that's the only way to get to the PTO pulley. Thank goodness I took a break to reflect and realized what I'd missed. I also had to take apart the i-bolt assembly that adjusts the tension for the belt to the auger. It was all stoved up and covered in some mystery sludge material. Finally the bolts were back in place, lift assist springs replaced and the belts tensioned correctly (or should I say what felt to be correct).

 

I crawled into the cab, shut the door, flipped on the PTO switch and the thrower came to life. I eased out into the 2+ feet of snow drifted in front of the garage.

For about 20 seconds my MF-14 blew snow perfectly and I was snug as a bug in a rug in my new cab. (see video below)

 

 

No, I did not stop throwing snow because I wanted to jump out of the MF-14 and go fire up the Case 444 which does not have a cab.....I was halted by a broken belt.  :(  I new this might happen as the belt was cracked in several places and appeared to have been put on the tractor the same year the oil was last changed (1974).

Well, I now know I need a new belt for my snow thrower......even a newbie can figure out that problem. :bigrofl:

Really tosses it out there once you get everything running right. :thumbs: I hope you saved a pass or two for when the new belt gets here.

At least it didn't just throw it. Looks like it went through the blower!
