Thanks Todd! I was in for a short break, so saved it as a pdf, then added it to the manual section, under Massey "brochures & misc.".

I was think about doing the same thing, but did not know if we need permission? Thanks!

That would be safe to copy & use. It's a simple Massey document, and not in any way a copyright infringement. It doesn't belong to that site either, so it's good to go.

It says there were less than seven hundred (700) MF-7E's ever made, I had no idea. No wonder you hardly ever see them.

Also
Laws don't apply to anything tractor related. I either read that, or wrote that somewhere.:D

I see the MF8E numbers are unconfirmed.
Mine is ser# 6625
Sure would be nice to find the actual numbers.

From 00001 to 06015 were 1966 models, so yours would be a 66. You can download the build dates here: MF Build Date by Serial # - Manuals - Garden Tractor Talk - Forums
