Hmmmmmm? Both the Ford and the FF have this trans and have a vent hole just above the fill hole. Got a pic of that area?

Here's a sneak peek at the filter. Regarding my question about draining the ATF or not before changing the filter....it looks like the filter is above (elevation wise) the pan where the ATF is held so I figure I should be okay. The only question I have now is whether I should have removed the plug wire and turned the motor over a few times to drain all the ATF out of the lines before I re-placed the fluid. I guess I can do that next year. :D

Your fill tube is going in the vent hole for my tractors. Thanks for enlightening me on the MF set up.

Here's a pic of the Ford rear;

Here's the FF:

On the FF there is a tube going up on the right side for filling it. But you have to remove the seat pan and gas tank to get to the vent hole.

I take it both of those have a dipstick right where the "fill" arrow points? If our transaxels are the same does that mean my machine could be modified to be identical to yours (with a hole cut in the back plate for filling)? Hmmm....inquiring minds want to know. :D

There is no dipstick. You fill until fluid starts coming back out the fill hole. You might look between the plate and the back of the axle to see if there is another plug in there like the Ford has.

Well, I got the Massey running well enough to throw some snow......that is until I lost traction and realized that the chains that came with the tractor were NOT the correct size. UGH! Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

The new belt I bought from TSC was great until I noticed that someone during the manufacturing of it had burned almost all the way through the belt. I did not notice this because it was behind the cardboard when I bought it. Luckily I had picked up a couple old belts when I made a purchase a while back of a JD I bought and sold and one of the belts fit just fine.

Here's a short video of the maiden voyage.



Gotta love the zebra pattern on the auger. Kinda cool effect.

Hey guys, I've got a problem and I'm short on solutions. I've poked around and have come up with some leads but wanted your thoughts. I moved snow with my rig yesterday for a good 1/2 hour, after which I parked her. Later I went to start her and she wouldn't budge. Hooked up the battery charger and in a short bit she had enough juice to fire up. The most common things I've found that can cause this are:

 

1) corrosion on the ground to the regulator

2) faulty regulator

3) problem with the coil

4) faulty wiring (short)

 

Here's a pic of the meter when the tractor is at full throttle.

Here are two of the many threads I've read through:
