Before I forget I wanted to post the wiring diagram I used, for the Starter/Generator tractors.
I searched here and MTF and found nothing so I searched the web and came up with this, I have tested it and it works.
One of the Mods. might want to put this somewhere for others to find as I believe it works for all makes with a 12 volt S/G setup.

One more 66 feature, this was originally pointed out by "MFgray", these are 2 different PTO foot clutch's

First is the 66, non adjustable, (the idler pulley is missing)
Second is from a 67 MF12Hydra, has 2 extra bolts for adjustment.

Nice Find! I just bought an MF12H unseen myself and when I picked it up the guy just set it on my trailer for me and just took it home, said it wont drive due to a failed shaft in the hyd motor. got it home and found it has a newer OH140 overhead valve replacement engine,(think it's still in it's 10 year warranty) put a battery in it and we'll I've been using it to cut grass and move trailers, go figure! must have been a sticking relief valve... it will be restored

The MF looks great, and the decals will really make it "pop". Looking forward to the fresh pics with decals installed. Did your order from Maple Hunter? Great decal sets he sells!

Yes Maple Hunter decals they are ordered 3 sets, figured I'll use them sooner or later and they won't go bad if they sit around a bit.

Doug, ust keep an eye on the sets not used right away. After a year or more, the tape starts breaking down may leave glue on the decals which will not come off. Had it happen to me once.

Picked up Decals today, 1set MF10, 2sets MF12, had to pay another $22.72 for HST and handling, joys of living in Canada but all looks good.
Thanks for the tip Dan, 1 set will get used right away, another for my 67 MF12 before the cold sets in and the 3rd??? going to keep them inside out of the sun though.

Finished Pictures, decals on, all done, everything works except light switch to go in.
Pictures speak for themselves, the last pic. is the look I was going for right from the start, take away the attachment, dual wheels and the stack, you get the idea. I come close but no aluminum nose ring.

Things I'd do different
1- fully rebuild the engine.
2- use the proper Massey flint gray metallic paint.

Still looking for aluminum nose ring and a proper steering wheel so I can use olcowhand's center cap which I already have. Also would like to get a more period appropriate narrow front tires, instead of the wheel barrow tires on it.

This brings the story to a close, I intend to keep this tractor and use for what they made it for.

At this time I would like to say thanks to Gary out in Nappanee area the fellow I got it from and who gave me some parts along the way, also to any and all who viewed, commented, gave advice or helped in any way.
Thank you it was fun.
Doug
