DH1 beat me to it but since I have the pics I'll add them. This is the stick out of my mf14 and it matches DH1's. You can be certain you have the right lengths now!

If you haven't filled it yet I suggest you put the fluid someplace warm so it will be thinner and pour easier, these are a pain to fill.

Don't laugh but I have a crock pot set up in the garage (on low of course) for warming the fluid.......shhhhhhhhh........don't tell my wife. :D

You all would be proud.....of my wife that is.......she knows now and is actually cool with it. Of course I was smart enough to use the back up pot instead of her really nice big one; the big one was tempting as I could have put all 5 quarts in that one at once. I'd like to live to see another day. :bigrofl:

Well guys you inspired me to find a way to speed up the process of filling my transmission on the tractor. ATF pre-heated in the crock pot till it's nice and warm in conjunction with an in-line pump, powered by a drill, and a little practice and the result was 1 quart in about a minute. I learned on the first quart to fill in "spurts" to allow the air to "burp"out as the transmission fluid goes down the hatch. Here's a quick look see:

 

 

Thanks for the inspiration.

I was able to capture a video of putting two quarts of ATF in the Massey. I put the first *quart in slower than the second quart. I decided to push the envelope on the second quart just to see what would happen. If I had put a towel over the end of the transmission fluid fill tube I would have avoided the splash. Even with the spray after finishing the second quart I only lost a small amount of fluid (captured it in a metal dish...see below).

 

 

Lost fluid from second quart:

I'd say the time saved in getting the fluid in the transmission far out weighed the lost fluid.

 

* The only way I see this method working is if you warm the ATF before pumping it into the system

BTW, here's the solution I came up with for the burp induced over spray when pumping the ATF in at high speed:

It's a medicine container with a hole cut in the center of the bottom. The diameter of the container is exactly the outer diameter of the fill tube.

ROOKIE MISTAKE? In all my haste (and excitement) to get the ATF into my Massey I neglected to change the filter while I had the system drained. :(  So, do I need to drain the ATF out before changing the filter or does the filter have enough elevation that I can change it without having to drain the system? Thanks. :worshippy1:

Not only did my wife let me use the crock pot but I walked into the garage last night and there on the floor of my shop was a NTM crock pot....okay, maybe it had to do with the fact she already has another one and the thought of cooking up a stew in the same pot 5 quarts of ATF were warmed in wasn't the yummiest thought she'd ever had.

 

If you all need to borrow my professional "fluid warmer" just give me a holler. :thumbs:

I have a good stock of "fluid warmers". Can't help you on the filter change out though. Is there not a vent on these trannys? That would help the fluid go in better.

It would seem there would be one, as it heats up it will build pressure inside. What transaxle is in these?
