OK guys nominate something.
This is my new to me 1971 Massey Ferguson MF12Hydra/drive.
I was looking for a MF12 Hydro for a repower project to make a grass cutter. Found one close by from a fellow GTT member, tractor fit the bill, it was a Hydro, came with mower deck and no engine. I bought a brand new on sale Princes Auto 13hp engine, comes complete with pull start, 12 volt starter, fuel tank, muffler. Installing was easy, removed the fuel tank and muffler that came with it, had to grind down one of the tank mounts as it hit the bottom of the battery box and made a new exhaust for it using a Cub Cadet muffler. Control cables fit without cutting them, the choke works backwards though, on is off, off is on. Engine fit the mounting holes on the tractors frame and the drive pulley was shimmed to fit the new engines crank. 1-1/8" pulley, 1" crank.
I have used the tractor cutting grass now for about 10hs or more, mower deck needs a bit of work mainly idler pulleys worn out. Tractor needs a battery, new key switch, lights and a couple of new idler pulleys for the Hydro drive belt, ones on it now are noisy. Aside from that works good, really good.
Another one I did.http://gardentractor...r-mf12-with-r71
