Help! My variator handle on my new '83 212 is broken. It's the part where the locking pin rides and I have to keep my hand on the handle to make it go any speed other than wide open. Anyone know where I can get a replacement?

Thanks,
Harry

I almost always look on Ebay for parts. There are several people on there making a living, by breaking tractors down for the parts. I think you are talking about the cast part on the outside of the pedestal.

You can ride your foot on the clutch pedal to reduce your speed. It does the same thing as the variator handle, but it is harder to hold a steady speed.

You should also be able to look at the variator handles for the Massey 10 and 12 also, they are identical if I am not mistaken, just different colors.

Yes, I think you're right, but that color is important.:D

Yes, you're right, Jeff. It is the cast part outside the pedestal.

The part you are looking for is on any of the 100 and 200 series tractors.I have several of the tractors here for parts if you still need it.

Well, sir, judging by the price you are asking for the integral hitch on classifieds, I'm afraid to ask the price of the variator handle.

No, I haven't really been looking too hard...had other things to work on the tractor. But, yes, I do need to replace it.

Color is important but a can of green paint is pretty cheap!

I do also. Just be cautious of the price, since often times, you can find a new part at your friendly dealer for the same price or less. ;)
