So... I bought a disk from a guy, who's relative had a tractor he wanted gone...

The guy I bought the disk from told me that his relative told him that I can take the tractor, mower deck and half a pail of parts for a 4 letter f word (get your mind out of the gutter!!)

FREE

The tractor is a massey ferguson 1200, it needs a new driveshaft. But in my research, the 1200 looks to have the peerless 2300 like its predecessor the 12. Something isn't adding up.

Does the 1200 have a driveshaft to the transaxle? Or belts like the 12?

What should I know about for common problems? Issues to look out for?

Thanks, all of you guys make me feel welcome on the forum!

The 1200 has a drive shaft back to a right angle gearbox and a belt from there to the axle.

Check Here.

As young and computer savvy as I am supposed to be, I couldn't figure out the website...

On second thought, being on my cellphone is no help at all.

Could you possibly post a pic?

Thanks
