Hello all, new to the forum and just was given a Massey Ferguson MF12G for free. It has dual rear wheels with wheel weights on the inner wheels. Was this a factory option? It is supposed to run and the engine is fairly clean, but the problem with it is the transmission/transaxle is stuck and the shifter just free floats around like it isn't attached to anything. I intend to pull the shifter off first just to see if I find any visible wrong, then possibly a rebuild of the trans will be done. The ultimate goal for me is to find either a snow plow or snowblower for it when it can move under it's own power.

I'd like to see some pictures of it with those duals on it, I bet it's pretty neat looking. It sounds like the shift rod is broken off in the transmission. Kbuzz on here bought a 10 that had the same trouble. We pulled out the shifter, welded it back together and off he was. You will have to drop the rearend out from under the frame in order to get to it. But it's not a hard job to do.

Will get some pictures of it. Not super pretty and I have the seat assembly off of it so it looks a bit weird to me right now.

I lived in Ft. Lewis Washington for 2 years back in 95-97.

Welcome, in the manual section there is a repair manual for the Tecumseh/Peerless transaxles. This manual is clearer to read than the Massey one for the MF12G. The MF12G has a peerless 2300 transaxle. I had similar issue with my MF12 and the shifter rod stop was broke.shifter rod stop.jpg (square part in lower right of the transaxle) I was able to get parts through a local JD dealer by looking up the part numbers for a JD 112 tractor

Yeah I know all about free not being cheap, I rebuild engines for a living. I also thankfully have a friend that has a few JD pulling tractors and he told me he has experience and parts for these transmissions. I will also get pictures of it sometime this afternoon.

Welcome to GTT. That will be a very good tractor. Check our Manuals Section for all the manuals that you need. Good Luck, Rick

So here are the pictures I promised, and looks like I need a new shift lever, and at least a drain and flush of the transmission/transaxle.

The tractor was running up until a few months ago when the shift lever broke, so should be minimal to get back up and running engine wise. Also needs a new seat, but a generic one will work for now.

Also need to figure out better way to fill tires with air as previous owner has stems between tires.
