Hello

I'm just joining the forum and pleased to see so many experiences and knowledge about MF. This is really rich !

I've just bought an old MF8 to restore. Currently, there's no step, and I like to redo the original plates. Would someone have a picture of them and the dimensions ?

Thank you !

First welcome to GTtalk.

I have a Massey MF8 Hydro. I can take some pics and get some measurements for you as long as my A.D.D doesn't kick in while I am out in the garage. Do you need both step plates? They are pretty good size pieces and might not be the easiest to make but I can get the dimensions for you.

Kind of hard to pass that up. I don't think you could make em for that price. I forgot the MF7 and MF8 had separate foot rests. I was thinking they were all one piece with the wrap up over the center of the frame like on the 10 and 12

Thanks everyone for your quick answers !
The sale on ebay is quite interesting . Unfortunatly, I'm living in France, so shipping will be hard for steel plates !
Anyway, the pics give me an idea of the basic shapes and brackets.
Thanks again !

If you still need measurements, I could get them for you. The tractor is kinda under tarp & snow right now, but if you need them quick, I can shovel over to it. Possibly Thursday? Let me know, or if someone has a more accessible set to measure, maybe they can beat me to it & save me some shovel time. :D

I do have 1 MF8 plus extra sheet tin tucked away in the corner of the garage, I'll take a look tonight and see what I got, I'd say the pictures+info "Bud" posted are pretty good.

Here's some pictures.
Right side
MF8 002.jpg

Left side
MF8 001.jpg

There is a piece of pipe that has 2 brackets on it that bolt to the frame and the rear of both steps bolt to brackets that attach to the pipe

The front has a pipe also that slides into brackets on the steps, the bracket also bolts to the frame.

Right side step is longer than the left side, I guess because of the pedal.
Buds pictures show front and rear mounts for the steps.
