hi

 

my name is Médéric, i'm french canadian, sorry for my english

 

to make a long story short

 

Last year, my grandfather gave me his MF10
he buy new in 1970, it was the tractor turf farm
the tractor has been stored in the garage, it is in a very good condition
I love this trator, especially because it belonged to my grandfather
 
I have some options:
 
mower deck (mf-610)
snow thrower (mf-620)
light kit
tire chains
mf-8 blade, I do not know why :)
 
snow thrower and tire chain is used 5 times that my grandfather told me, its like new
 
I look for the restored and repaired the thing that is breaking
in fact I have already started, it is all apart, and I started the sand blast
 
I read a lot on this website, there is a lot of useful information
this greatly helps me
 
I can not picture for the moment, but I will soon put

Welcome to the site, lots of good guys here.

I got to ask does your tractor have French Decals on it?

Reason I ask is on the AGCO parts books they show French decals used, wondered if yours has them as I have never seen one with them on.

Hi Speed005.

Welcome to GTT. :wave:

 

That's a good looking original machine you have there, and it's nice

that it's stayed in the family.

 

I see you have the key hanging on a string. That's standard for a 45 year old

Indak ignition switch. You can still get the original replacement switch from

your local MF dealer. If you're have trouble with that, message me.

 

Looks like you're well under way with the restoration. I'll be following

along, and hopefully learn a few tricks. I already see one, with the

perforated backer in your dash repair. :thumbs:

 

If MH81 follows along, maybe he can learn some French Canadian English. :D  :D

Very nice condition. And it has the tractor in the Massey ferguson front grill decal. The newer ones did not have that. The engine bonnet nose cone is in nice condition too. Could you post a picture of the model and serial number. Noel.
