I put some pictures up in with Massey/Snapper Pictures Fellow. I don't have the Ford any more! I'll have to get some pictures of Dad's herd in the spring. I do know a 16HP v-twin Vanguard Briggs works well in the MF10 also.

I recall there being more. Maybe 5, I think.


Agco shows 6pc.



I will try it without the 3 extras. If I need extras I will have to find some.

I also noticed that this tractor has Sears tires on the rear, are these factory?

Another thing I have noticed is that there are 2 different brake brackets and 2 different lift arm assemblies.

Just make sure the belt rides down in about a quarter inch into the pulley. If it is flush with the outside of the pulley, it will wear the belt funny & these are too expensive to wear out fast.

The pully does have a worn spot down in the groove, I will know more when I get it back together.

I bought a used a used brake band and it came with a different bracket, and after looking at the parts book, it seems that the mounting brackets changed at about SN 6016. I'll do another video with the 2 bracket, and the lift handle also changed at the same time. The older handle was held on with a pointed set screw like is used on the the clutch pedal, the newer one has a square key and a set screw. And the other major difference I can see is the belt guard on the motor is different.

I'll keep looking for other changes.

When I removed the wheels, they were loose, so maybe somebody took these off of something so they roll it around.

I noticed in the later M10-12 parts manual reference to " Drive Idler conversion Kit, Brake Conversion Kit". I don't know exactly what that means, but an obvious indication of some changes.

Looking good! you are coming along great with it. One thing I might remind you of and if you read the manual before you put it back together instead of after like I did the center vari pulley has 2 different size hubs on it and the smaller hub goes to the outside. That was something I had to change today. Keep up the good work.

I have spent a good amount of time with the manual and the parts book. This one had its share of PO Mods. The PO drug it behind a pickup when they took it to the mower shop. I just hope the tranny is still good.

Well I have all the clutch/brake/variable speed drive parts back in. I told the wife I was going to hook the spring Back up and was afraid I might knock it off the stands. I told her if she heard a Loud bang followed by lots of adult language to call 911.

Luckily she didn't have to.
