I guess my biggest concern is do the SS motors have the compression release needed for the S/G?


SSI motors have the decompressor.

I found that if you slip the long front axle bolt and a couple of big washers into the frame without the axle in it, and then tighten a nut onto the bolt, you can squeeze up the frame and get a snug fit for the axle without needing shims.

The bushing is to long in the axle, I ground the bushing down just a bit, and it fits tight now.

You can actually do that on the fly if a bit of slack appears in the axle. Just snugging the nut can sometimes be used to get rid of the slack if it's minor.

I tried that on the Massey and it was still loose, after I ground a bit it is much tighter.

That was a great deal! I bet you are going to love those! Plus I think the MF10 will look even better with AG's.

I want to put the same on mine.

I have found a set of narrow cub wheels for the front.

Since I have a plow now I am going to use AGS on the Massey. I was going to set it up for mowing, and use Turfs.

Narrow Cub wheels are what I put on the front of my MF12, but I found out they were two different wheels. One had a greese zerk one didn't. I never thought to much about it until they were painted and went to put them on, the one without the zerk was about 3/16" to 1/4" wider than the spindle. If you know were to get dust cover that fit them (1-1/2") please let me know. Your MF10 is looking good!!!
