Can you give us a bit more info. i.e. Tractor and mower model and serial. That would help us to locate a manual if I have one.

I am sure we will need a mower manual for belt routing.
If you could supply the mower #s as well.

The tags are wore off the deck, but I measured the overall width of the deck at 40" However, Cut would be 38"

I send you a link to my dropbox with the tractor manual.
I think we will have to find the deck manual for the routing.

Enjoy

We have a GTT Junior Member here who has a need for the Operator's Manual for a MF12H tractor.

At question is the Approx capacities for the Hydro. If anyone has a MF12H manual, this young gent would be very appreciative of the info. If anyone has the spare time to scan & upload, that seems to be one missing from our manuals

The 12h manual is the same one as 12g.It doesn't give a capacity for it though.It just tells you to fill the reservoir to full mark when cold.The fluid they tell you to use is type "A" auto trans fluid.I don't have arepair manual maybe the capacity would be in there.

The service manual I have is 1973, and covers 10G, and 12H and 12G.
No capacity mentioned in there.
I'm thinking, it took about 4-5 quarts.(could off on that #. Memory thing) One thing for sure, it took a long time to fill.

I was thinking I had heard around 3 qts somewhere. Does our young memeber know whether he has the resevoir under the seat or not? There are some models that do not have the resevoir under the seat.

The young gent appreciated the info, it was just what he was needing.
Said his Dad got him some books too!
That's a manual I'm surprised we don't have already. I searched a couple times before I accepted the fact.

Thank you all for the info, as he gets more comfy with the posting thing, i'm sure he'll chime in to say thanks in person.
