Does anyone know what is the correct group number for the battery used in an MF14/16? The AGCO battery is NLA doesn't seem to cross ref?

Measure your old battery or the box it fits in and go from that.  Most battery company's have a listing with the physical size of their batteries.

That's what I did. I measured where the battery goes and took my tape measure to the parts store and bought one that fits. I like using a car battery instead of lawn and garden batteries in my tractors.

I have a MF 1655 and have used both car batteries and lawn and garden batteries over the years. I've had and used the tractor since 1978. I generally prefer the lawn and garden variety they are much cheaper, start the tractor just as well and last 4 or 5 years just like a car battery. I think with the last G&L batery I put in I had to drill out the hole in the posts a little and then put a bolt throught the car type cables and the post and tightened it down. You can throw a bungee cord over the smaller battery to hold in place if needed.

I want to sell this tractor but wanted to put the "right" one in. The old battery is long gone. I think the L&G batt will be too small looking. If I was keeping it I'd have probably gone that route. I guess I'll just have to take some measurements and wing it.

My 16 has a group 24. Duralast part #24-dn to be specific. It fits just right with hold downs and all

Group 24 is correct.  Find a place that sells reconditioned batteries.  They are fine.
