Update !
Reading the serial no. it seems that my MF12 is made in year 1975 .


Thanks for the update. I never had to research my serial number because I have the owners manual with the purchase date written in the back page. My 12G is also a 1975.

Later---DAC

At last , my AGCO belts have arrived from USA - long way .

This week-end I want to change the belts and tune-up the varidrive.

Just finish installing the fuel filter .

And for the long winter that is comming - the customising of the dash : revmeter , fuel level , voltmeter and ampermeter . The ampermeter is indicating the current consumption (amps.) not the charging of the battery .And the joysticks for the heavyduty actuators for the 3 way hitch (cat.0) from behind and a small frontloader - in the distant future .

Keep in touch .

Brake band material is NLA as far as I know here. You may have to make something work.

There have been a couple of threads on "The Other Forum" where guys have used rivets and JBweld to replace the brake band material on Sears SS12 brake bands. A search on: brake band ss12 will bring them up. The actual material came from McMaster Carr. There must be something equivalent in Europe.

Judging by the comments it seens to have been an effective replacement.

I found a local supplier for flexible brake band and a solution to glue it :http://www.youtube.c...h?v=5r0PrZO83xM

It seems that Loctite 3430 do the job .

Coming along nicely. Will the 3pt be manual, or are you going to apply power to it?

Did you get the Vari-drive tuned up real nice? They can be tricky. Doug (DH1) is very

good with them.

The 3pt first will be manual and then I'll put a 12V heavyduty actuator . First I have to finish the 3pt. I have a little problem . I have to cut in the middle the toolbox under the seat in the back for the upper hitch point and I'm not very happy .

 

The varidrive is working fine now , it took me 4 hours . You have to understand it if you want to tune it .It was tricky until I found the point where the varidrive in Park was disengage the primary belt and the brake was working (I'm not sure if I made myself understood) . So I discovered that the band in the brake shoe was worn-out .The shims at the variable speed pulley were in the outside becouse the old belt was worn so I had to put the shims inside the pulley in order to keep the idler pulley level down so it don't touch the step plate . Did you understand anything ? - I'm not sure that my (technical) English is very good .

 

Anybody can help me with a Repair Manual for MF12G. It seems that I cannot acces the AGCO manuals from my zone (Romania).At the left wheel I have a leaking and the wheel has a little play in the hub .

How can I check and change the transmission oil ?

 

Keep in touch .

Your technical English is good. No problem here, understanding what

you did.

 

There is a repair manual in the Massey section on this site. Here is the link.

You can download from here, but there are restrictions as to how many per day, until

your post count reaches a certain level. I'm not sure of the specifics, but I'm sure

they are detailed here somewhere.

 

Do a search in the Massey section here. there was conversation not too long

ago about hubs that have play, and several good ideas on how to fix.

Looking forward to seeing the hitch operate.

Understood perfectly, but it it helps that I've done it once too.

As for the service manual, it is here: http://gardentractor...service-manual/

Just a thought, but in order to avoid destroying the seat pan/toolbox, could you

build a standoff bracket to get everything away from the back of the seat pan?

I've done that sort of thing to avoid destroying the seat pan on a couple MF14s

when I adapted 3pt hitches that where meant for the MF1450. Here's a couple pictures to give you

an idea. On the first one, I had the 12volt actuator in the box(standoff).

On this one, I tapped into the hydraulic lift circuit. Not as much space was need, so

I was able to mount the lower arms to the lugs on the axle.
