Hi everybody!  I just picked up a 1974 MF 14 that I was planning on doing a full restore on, but then I discovered how hard to come by and expensive some K321 engine parts are.  I am also a big fan of EVs, so I have decided to try and convert it to electric instead!  I've visited a bunch of websites now, but I'm hoping that someone knows of one publication that will cover the basics of what I need to do.  The MF 14 is a big, heavy tractor (over 500 lbs without the mower deck), so I'm thinking it will need to be at least 48V, and I'm thinking of adding a second electric motor to use as a PTO substitute, but beyond that I don't even know where to begin!

Check with member DH1, he has an electric Massey 10 or 12. He could help maybe. Look it up on you tube too. He has a video of it operating.
