I'm following both of you guys on your progress- I'm a ways behind though. Hydro is out and hope to prime the frame today. It must be a good feeling when re-assembly starts--Kind of like starting the return journey home, I guess.:worshippy1:


I am hoping to start this weekend on it but I am not sure it will. So far all I painted is the flint grey parts so I could at least get a rolling chassis going. I have all the tin to clean up yet and some body work that needs done to the hood and fenders. I also have the wheels to clean and paint. May clean up the wheels tomorrow evening and throw a shot of paint on them. Will see how that goes.

Coming along good, that's a 1966 frame for sure,
no center rib under engine,
2 sets of engine mounting holes,
rear plate missing 2 holes for tiller spring bracket.
All unique features of the early MF10 Massey.

AS usual--Great, helpful video--Thankx Amigatec. My 12 is close behind and the comparison of the frames is interesting-think mine is a '70. Some difference also in the lift slot as well. I'm still without engine though, but looking

How are these different from the later models?

This is my first Massey, and I like to make my videos as informative as possible. I know thebCubs and DB's better.

From what I remember

1 - Amp meters had sharp pointy 0s
66 MF10 025..jpg

2 - Steering arm is Cast Iron, later ones were Aluminum.
66 MF10 026..jpg

3 - Rear plate is missing the 3 holes for Tiller Spring assist bracket.
66 MF10 012.jpg

4 - They had 2 sets of engine mounting holes, I think they were considering different engine manufacturers.
66 MF10 083..jpg

5 - Missing the center frame rib under the engine.
66 MF10 049..jpg

6 - I also notice that the foot PTO is not adjustable, missing the 2 nuts+bolts the later models have.
66 MF10 008.jpg

7 - Vari-Drive decal is not used, I believe in 67 when the MF12Hydra came out the MF10 got the Vari-Drive decal.
66 MF10 018.jpg

And of course 66s had the Aluminum dash and early ones had Aluminum Nose Ring.

Wasn't there some discussion about stick on serial# tags as opposed to riveted tags?
Does that apply here? there was a change over at some point in time.

My 66 and 67 both have stick on tags, when they went to rivet tags, ???

What I would really like to know is what the 2nd set of engine mounting holes fit?
The MF Executive tractors had Kohlers in them, I wonder if they were considering Kohler engines for the MF10.

I always was under the assumption that the second set was for the 12 Hp engine. Just an assumption, no facts. Is the 10 and 12 the same footprint?

If the early Ones used Aluminum what did the others use?

The 12 hp was bolted to the same holes as the 10 hp was. Also is the big hole for the oil drain?

My 10, and 12h are both 1968. They both have stick on tags.

That makes sense, what you say, about possibly using Kohler engines. Anyone have a tape measure and a 10hp kohler.

Will, I have a 10HP Kohler on blocks in the shop (maybe not the one you're referring too tho) and my frame is ready to prime--What do you want measured?--Lee
