Ok on my MF10, I installed the sleave hitch, and there are at least 3 holes on each end to attach the rod to.

What holes are the best to use for normal use?

Are you talking about the angle irons at the rear or the low end of the lift lever? If the angles, I think the middle ones are more for the tiller. If the holes on the lift, the further from the pivot, the more motion but harder to lift. On Ryan's, we ended up in the middle holes and it worked fine.

I also use the holes in the middle and that seems to work fine.It's probably all trial and error and what worked best with what you're doing.

You're talking about this rod?
This is how it was when I got my 12.
It's gotta say something about it somewhere in the manuals.
I just put it back the way it was.
Also, as the others said, attach the sleeve hitch, or tiller, to the
center holes in the 2 angle brackets.

I think that's where I got, I wasn't sure if there was a proper hole for it.

Well the parts tractor is home, but its ugly. It is a 1974 MF12, somebody has cut a big hole in the hood.

For those Massey lovers, now would be the time to turn away.

Well I got the motor off now, and it's not the original motor either, the oil drain pipe goes straight out the of the motor and through the frame. Somebody cut a hole in the frame for the pipe.

I have reason to believe the SSI coil is bad. The shroud was loose and had some bolts missing. It also appears the nut on the crankshaft has chisel marks, and the SSI coil has chisel marks on the bolts. It looks like somebody has tried to work on the SSI. I plan to use the older magneto system with it. I will also have to replace the cylinder head in order to use the older sheet metal.

I have also noticed a lot of differences between the '66 MF10 and '74 MF12. I plan to do a video on these later.

Sorry to hear you have some problems with the 10, but at least you have a game plan in place.

So, if I understand correctly, you're going to bore the old style 10 block out for a 30 over 12 piston?

Also, your old 10, do you have the mag?

I was wondering that as I watched it too Alan. I couldn't remember so I went back to the first page and his MF10 had an HH120 in it.

Ahh, that explains a few things. Never gave that any thought as the 120's with the points seem to be a rarity around here.
