Doug, All of the ones I've seen are Massey red. Might check our site sponsors, or ebay for a top link. Tractor Supply Co. sells new ones.

TSC doen't sell a top link suitable for these MFs. They are a dedicated custom made item and shorter than standard top links.

I have 1 for the 1450>1855 tractors, going to try tomorrow see if it can work.

Looks like the lifts are painted Flint Grey. Here's a really nice one.

Update, today I got myself a parts tractor, bought this for mainly 1 reason.



Dunno why everyone is talking about the three point. It's obvious you bought it for the premo tractor seat. :bounce: :bounce:

Check with site sponser Bob (bhts), for that top link. I think he has a line on some.

Update

Started working on this thing again, managed to get the 3pt on it and got the rock shaft freed up. :dancingbanana:
I picked up a cat 0 top link and I think it's going to work, not sure if it's too long but will see.

Both of the height adjusters are seized be nice to get at least one of them freed up.
The parts 14 tractor I'm going to strip it right down, it will make my 16 better and whatever good parts are left over can go on a shelve in the garage, the N/G parts, for scrap.

It'd be nice to get those adjusters working. Have you tried LOTs of heat? Red hot.

No not tried any heat yet, right now soaking in penetrating oil, one end of both adjusters is free but the other end on them is not.
Also looks like 1 of the threaded shafts is bent, twisted a bit.

Good Luck Doug, I'm with Will on the heat thing. Just watch that the tube isn't sealed up when you apply heat. (I think it's a tube? )

Might take the loose ends out before heating if it is?

Ya it's tube that screws onto a threaded shaft, right and left hand threads at each end.

Today after work I spent an hr or 2 working on disassemble of the 14.
Was able to get the electric clutch of easy, that gives me the proper clutch for the 16 as it had one on it that has a smaller pulley, now with the right clutch and pulley the attachments will spin at the right RPMs, before they were running slower.
Also got me a Hydro cooling fan, a metal one, pulled the hydro control brake, and rear wheels. All these parts I need for the 16 as they are better than what I have, the rear rims are for the new AG tires that I have for it.
Pulled the motor, drive shaft, front axle, wiring, the 14 is getting smaller and smaller.

Doug, an acet. torch will free those threads right up. Don't apply the heat to the threaded shafts, just the female tube part. Heat it fairly red, then they will break free. It may take a 2nd heating to get all the shaft out if it starts to cool even a little. Once you get them out & clean with a wire brush, lube them up & they'll likely work fine. A torch will set you free....or at least your frozen parts!

Got back to work on this thing today, finished striping my parts MF14 tractor, using the best of the 2 to make a good MF16.
Today I goth the steering back together, it's a job to put those bushings back in the frame for the steering arm. Got the motor, drive shaft bolted in with a good hydro cooling fan on it and mounted some new front tires. Spent some time sorting though all the parts I have for it. Didn't get everything I wanted done but I wasn't in a hurry, just took my time and enjoyed working on the tractor for the day.
That's what the hobby is all about isn't it?
