I bought this MF10 Variable Speed recently at a sale on a whim (Grandpa had a MF14). It starts and runs well and the tractor looks like the paint has been redone. I've had it out to play several times and it is a blast. It could mow now, but I can tell the steering needs adjusted to equalize right and left, and there is a small leak from the fuel bowl so I keep it closed when parked. The mower deck seems to be in good shape with very little rust. The blower and mounting hardware appear to be complete but for the manual chute rotation rod. Another opportunity to buy a hydro has popped up so I'm gauging interest in selling this one. $650 and located in York, PA.

 

If this one doesn't sell I look forward to hanging out here a bit more and tinkering with it.

Steering may be fine, designed to not turn equally.

Not to derail the thread, but why were they designed that way?

I half wondered if maybe the asymmetrical steering was designed that way!? I wonder if that was more common back in the day or if MF/AMF was on their own? Thanks for the tip before I started wrenching. I imagine that's covered in the manual.

It has to do with the mowing radius. They turn sharper away from the chute.

If you have the mule pulley assembly mounted, you will see that when turning right the rear edge of the tire could rub if allowed to angle too far.  Turning left there are no clearance issues.

Thanks for the feedback on the steering. I still feel like it's a little off as it's only hitting the stop on one side but not way out.

Tractor sold. Thanks for the interest. I'm not sure how to change the "for sale" classification in green.
