BTW...the mid mount deck lift cylinder hydraulic oil also is the oil that powers the 3pt lift. So to prevent having to wait for the mid cylinder to cycle to end before oil pressure reaches rear cylinder, there is a place to "pin" the mid cylinder "in place" so oil is diverted instantly to the rear cylinder.

I just thought of something else and it is a little off topic from the plow but was it you Daniel that modified the lever to have foot pedal instead of the lever?
That was on my Allis 416H. Never did it on a Massey, but it could be done. The hand lever has a tension system to hold lever in place, so it would have to be taken off to allow free enough movement for a pedal. If I remember right, the shaft the arm goes to is all the way down to the foot level. I very MUCH prefer foot over hand controlled hydro, but some like the hand. Actually, unless you are mounting a FEL, the hand lever works fine. Back when I redone my 416, my arthritis wasn't under control, so having only one hand to steer while changing hydro speed/direction made things quite painful.

Very nice Daniel, once you go to three point attachhments the brinley implements are cheesy
Yeah, I rarely use this adapter. I have a small spike harrow that I need it for. It's old, so hate to change it to 3pt...like to keep it original. Gonna use the adapter for a plow day though. My BIL traded off his plow tractor, so he'll use my Massey with the adapter to use his 10" Brinly plow.

Has anyone here used a Sears Cat 0 plow like this with a MF 1650 3ph or similar? Looks a bit smaller and lighter duty than the Brinly, but as long as it does the job (20' x 100' garden, clay loam) & the price is right, I don't mind.
I seriously doubt it will fit. The Sears stuff is 12 inches between drag bars, Cat 0 s 20 inches. Sears stuff is NOT cat 0. You would have to weld on extensions

I think that Sears is just an 8" plow too. A 1650 wouldn't know it was behind it! Easy enough to make it fit the cat 0.
Just have to find another one and make it into a two bottom!
