That looks pretty good. You guys seem to find lots of MF GT's up there in Ontario.

Today I gave the 14 it's first real test, cut about 2/3 of my grass with it, ran at least 1 full tank of gas through it and it did OK. At first didn't want to run right but after about 10, 15 minutes it smoothed out and now doesn't miss a beat, smooth and steady. Found that the fuel leak is from the gas line not the fuel pump as I was told by the previous owner. Needs a few things fixed up to make it nice but this one runs good, better than my MF16.
Pictures of the long grass it was cutting.

Looks like it got a good workout. Being it was it's first chore for you, it looks like it done well.
You probabley got it good and warm, and burnt out some carbon. Where you running any additives
in the fuel?

Ya it did OK, no additives just fresh gas, not bad for $300. this is just as good of a deal as my MF12Hydra was when I got it.

Thats great for that price. Sometimes you just win. That's the one from London right?
I always run Seafoam in every small engine. Seems to work good as a stabilizer, and from what
the can says it's a good engine cleaner. That's hard to confirm, other than they all work fine.
I run 91 octane fuel. No ethanol.

Your 14, reminds me of the 14 I got last Aug. $300. Guy said it worked great before his buddy worked on it.
But he couldn't get it to run. I got it home, discovered that the coil wires where reveresed. Best running worker I have.

Those 14/16 decks cut really nice. I had an MF14 several years ago, and should have kept it, but needed funds for new projects. You sure gave it a good workout test there Doug! Must be in pretty good working order to handle all that tall grass!

It ran smooth and steady, better than my 16 but the 16 has a little more guts I notice, just surges to much. I'm hoping when I get the exhaust fixed and the carb cleaned it runs like the 14 does.

Man those are three of the ugliest seats I've ever seen. Its weird, those seats dont look bad on newer mowers, but put them on a old tractor and they are horrendous, I think all the Masseys used a Michigan style low back seat, definitely not a dinette chair seat
