Thanks George! Now that you mention it, they had to order my seals in as well. It was not a big delay or anything though.

I figure if I get everything in a week I will be happy. I am going to pull my deck apart here in the next day or so and I want to sandblast the bottom of the deck and repaint it.

Oh, on mine... when I added the grease fittings, I removed the inner seal on the large bearing. This allowed me to let the grease fill into the bearing without having to force it into the bearing through the seal. Just grease nice and slow so you do not pop-out the outer seal on the bearing. The needle bearings do not have anywhere as much stock grease as the larger ones and really need some grease every now and then.

I stuck your post as a new thread so it could easily be found. Eventually I would like to make an organized thread with all important information that anyone would need regarding the Massey garden tractors.


I'm a new member so please direct me if I do this wrong...
I had two Massey MF12 garden tractors but have given them away. I still have the owner's manual (very soiled) and the complete 180-page PARTS BOOK #651,238,M95 (pristine condition). Since I no longer need these I will gladly donate them to a Massey collector provided any new data be scanned for use by others on this website.

If you want to send them to me I can scan them and put them on the site. I am sure a couple of other members would be more then willing to scan them also.

I am getting ready to redo the deck on my AMF 1010. Do I need 3 or 6 seals?

You only need three of them, the lower bearing is a sealed unit.

Here are the added grease fittings. This is a very easy drill and tap mod that makes maintenance a bit easier.

If you have access to some spare poly spring bushings and a lathe... you can also build new blade bushings like this!

I wanted to post updated information and prices.

The phone number that is was posted is now their fax phone number. The correct number now is 1-800-323-6548

The first bearing part number now cross references to part number Z-9504B which is still $3.75 a piece.
The seals they didn't have in stock but are ordering more in and their price is now $3.75 each.

I am going to edit Lee's post to reflect the updated information. I just ordered everything because I want to redo the mower deck on my MF12G. We need to have a second mowing tractor available.

Hi NUTNDUN, is this contact Info and the part numbers still OK as far as you know? I killed a bearing today---

 

You only need three of them, the lower bearing is a sealed unit.

In case anyone needs more info about other possibilities I found these locally.

 

On the left is the 1" wide needle bearing, green box in the center is an SKF seal and on the right is the ball bearing. They fit fine but I have not ran the tractor yet.
