My son has a 1966 MF10 we are about to start on. Couple of questions. Was there a reason for the center rib support in the '67's? Was this a weak spot? Ryan will be playing in the dirt (plowing with it some) and I'd like to head off any problems with structure.

Also, any suggestions on one year to the next as to better parts to use on the rebuild. I'd like to keep it close to original, but I think functionality and better design should figure in.

Thanks - Alan

I have 2 66 frames and both are good no sighs of cracks or bending, I think they put the center rib in because of the FEL attachment, that would put a lot of extra stress on everything and without the center rib you might have a problem.
The aluminum dash is a bonus, way better that the plastic ones.
