Enjoyed the video and I know you're enjoying the rain. We got 3/4 inch this morning, first in a month and a half.

Well I installed the engine pully and tried to use the belts from the MF12, but they didn't fit at all. I looked for numbers on the belts and they are something you buy at the parts store nd not Massey belt. The belts that came off the 10 are MF belts, so I will go with them for a while.

Are the OEM Massey belts better than the aftermarket?

About how many feet long is a Massey 10? My grandparrents just bought one with a rear roto tiller and the were wondering if they could haul it on the 6ft bed of a truck with no problem or if they would be better off using a trailer. Thanks for the help!

p.s Amigatec you sure have a nice looking Massey 10 coming together there! It will sure look nice once your done!

I hauled a Cub Cadet with snow thrower in the bed of a Dodge Dakota, I had to leave the tail gate down. The Cub is about the same length as the Massey.

Now that's some great news!

Somehow I missed the q above about MF belts. Yes, you want to use OEM as anything else will give the Vari-Speed fits and nothing will work quite right. (unusual pitch)

Well I drove it around ome today, but. Have a LOT of blowby from the breather tube, it may slow down after it breaks in some.
