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?


Yes I have the mag coil and one of these point eleminator boxes.

Yes I have 2 HH120 motors. I found a new set of rings for $35.

Well it looks like I will put the TriTrac on hold for a while until I get the Massey running, I also have to fix the S/G on my Cub 129, it has quit charging.

I have a call into the machine shop to see about fixing my motor. It may be cheaper to just hone the block and buy a new piston, I did find one for about $50. I'll know more today. It's still going to cost a couple of hundred to rebuild it, I have to find the last piece of tin for the top of the motor but at least now I know what I need.

Since the motor in the parts Tractor isnt going to work, I have found a 10hp from a 1966 MF10 to rebuild and put in it.

Well the 10 hp turned out to be a 1969 model motor, so I will be rebuilding the 12 hp that came out of it.

Well I don't normally worry about how much a project is going to cost, but I figure I have spent maybe $1000, most of that on the motor, tires, and paint, on the MF10 so far, and I have maybe $500 to go until its finished. I have a used steering wheel that will need to be repaired, and I need a center cap for it, and I need a seat.

The only part I need for the motor now is the pistonand rings, then all the little things like fuel line, fuel filter, oil, air filter, muffler, and belts. The motor has been the most expensive so far. I bought a head, carb, flywheel, top tin for the head, and gaskets.

I'm on the home run stretch now.

Looking at the grill and hood on my 2 Massey's I have noticed the hinge is different and there seems to be something missing at the bottom. Does anyone have a good picture or a parts book for a 1974 MF12?

Well after being on back order forever I finally got the piston today, I still have the head bolts on order, but I may enough to put it back together.
