Hello everyone.  Finally decided to join after numerous years of reading informative information on site.  Anyway I'll be asking questions on these two Massey Fergusons that I've had and will eventually fix up.  They both run and as a matter of fact I started using the MF 16 to cut my 3/4 acre lawn.  I can't believe how well these tractor cuts grass.  Unfortunately I'll be putting my Sears/Roper away or selling it.  I'm stuck on Massey now.  Please bare with me if I don't get back to any responses quickly but give me time and I'll answer them.  Anyway here are some photos of tractors.  Thanks everyone.

They are all nice tractors.  i love massey, but have a soft spot for Sears. (wife says that spot is between my ears)

LarryBL from TX may want to give the Sears a look, or at least look into the plow and three point.

 

Anyways, :welcome: to GTTalk

Nice collection. I'm mostly an AC guy but have several Masseys in the stable and a couple of Sears too. All of these older tractors were built pretty well. To me the Sears Suburbans were just a bit harder to work on than some of the other brands, especially if you had to work on the electrical systems with the starter-generator crammed under the fuel tank, but they were very cool looking machines with neat color schemes and a great variety of attachments.

Sorry for the delay but work keeps me busy.  Anyway the roper was sold two weeks ago to my brother, which I'm kinda glad because I really didn't want to get rid of it.  Sold it to him for $100.00 with the condition that if he ever wants to get rid of it he would sell it back to me for the same amount.  Originally I was asking $450.

Well guys many thanks to your replies.  And my apologies for the delay in responses. Well the Roper was finally sold and it was sold to my brother for $100.  Sold to him for this amount with the condition that if he ever wanted to get rid of it he would sell it back to me for this amount.  I originally was asking $450 and I had it listed locally on craigslist and on Ebay. 

 

I have started rebuilding one of the mower spindles on the 1650.  Trouble finding the needle bearing and lower oil seal.  Called my local MF dealer and they can get them but I'm looking at roughly $30 for one needle bearing and oil seal with $9 dollar shipping charge.  Also does anyone have an extra mule drive they are willing to sell for the 1650.  If you notice from first posting I'm missing the tensioner.  Appears rod that goes through bracket is broken.  Or can this be repaired.  Pulley's,  well they are worn but I'll deal with this when I really have too.

 

On to the MF 16.  I have recently purchased a pair of spindle covers from ebay.  I'am now looking to find a handle for the hydro lift.  I have a clothes hanger at moment on it.  So anyone out there that may have one please let me know.  I'm wanting to redo wire harness on both MF 16 and 1650.  From what I've read can I download manuals to get me on the right track?  Are connections to either tractor easy to come by? 

 

Well thanks to everyone out there.  I'm glad I joined this forum.  Hope to hear form you all soon.  And once again I'll get back to you guys as soon as I can.

I buy my connectors from my local JD dealer. Only place arounf that I could find that sells the proper ones. But, as the saying goes. They aren't cheap from JD. Good luck. And yes download the operators manual. The 1650 manual has the wiring diagram in it.
