Picked this up on the weekend,  A 1974 MF 14 with a tiller, MF wheel weights, chains and homemade front plow.

No mower deck, Seller said it never had deck just used for tilling and snowplowing the driveway.

First thing to do was remove the tiller and front  hydraulics the po had installed.

Now in the process of installing a MF front plow.

The front plow came with my first MF 14 and have recently discovered it is actually a 630 dozer blade and not the proper 530 dozer blade.

I am not modifing the blade just welding a round bar for the lift that can be removed later and making a rear mount for it.

Good stuff you got it, does it run and drive OK?

2 sets of wheel weights too, and the wide tiller.  :thumbs:

Seller last used this tractor this fall to till the garden, has down sized the garden so no longer needed it.

Engine runs good but needs tuning and hydro seems to be good except for 1 leaky axle seal, steering nice a tight

Going to used for snow removal if we get any.

The solid set of weights are IHC and for some reason I'm thinking Farmall Cub front wheel weight

The truck in the garage is a 1942 Dodge and used it to get my first Massey

Nice score on the Massey! I was guessing a '40-'45 on the truck!

Nice tractor,,,those extra wheel weights will fetch a few bucks!  

Little extras like the hash marks on fenders spruced up those 40's dodges and they had a great looking grill.

Nice setup.  I'll be interested to hear how the tiller does.

 

I'm interested in how they work too

This tiller has both extensions and tines are well worn and at least 1 broken tine 

I have another with just one extension on it and good tines just didn't have the belt but got one now

Will post a video in the spring on the tiller
