I think you can tell by the last numbers in the serial number. There is a chart in the Massey manuals section here on this site. See if your number corresponds with any for a  MF 10.

The '66 units all had starter generators. The frames are different in a couple ways and the nose piece and the dash are aluminum. These ideas are pretty much resolute and if someone finds a tractor without a serial but all these differences, it is assumed to be a genuine '66.

I'm wondering if the engine got changed at some point.

It has a perfect original aluminum nose.I believe the engine is original because the wiring is not all hacked up.

The one part that is really hard to replace or modify is the frame.

1966 does not have the center rib under the engine on the bottom side of the frame.
