:welcome: to GTTalk.
The std L&G battery will fit in a MF10 without any problem. I went with the 425 amp they sell at TSC, and it fit.

As for tubes, almost every tire shop can get them for you and there are a ton of them on eBay most of the time. Just match tire size to tube size, but be wary of "one size fits many" tubes... They can be a hassle.

As for year, just post in the serial or dl the list from our manuals area.
Looking forward to pics of the Tractor!

Well, it sure doesnt seem to have been abused in its life. It's in nice shape.
Mower deck and a blade? That's a year round unit.
:thumbs: thanks for sharing the pics.

Oh, and did you find a serial number?

I think The engine is later than 67, but I think they stopped using the stickers and went to metal tags by 1970. Best guess, 68-69?
I can't see the number past the 1446, so we will have to wait until you get eyes on it.

I fsh4fun.. :wave:

 

Welcome to GTT.

That's a real good looking 10 you've got there. Nice and straight, and real good looking

tin. That would be a great candidate for a restoration. Of course, you could just keep it

looking great like it is, and put her to work, without worrying about dirtying it.

Either way, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Those 10s are a nice ride. Of all my MFs, the

10 is my favorite ride. If you have any questions, just ask. We'll do

our best to help.

 

Oh, please say thanks to your dad for looking after it as well as he did. :thumbs:

That would make it a 1967.
Serial list is here if you want it.
