Well I have cleaned, adjusted, painted and reinstalled the Steering Column, so I thought would compare the the MF10 column to a Cub Cadet column since they are both made by the Ross Company.

First the MF10 column is shorter.

And the mounting holes are different.

The side plate is different.

But the internals are all the same.

Hope I'm not too late with this as I've been traveling, but if you're still fighting the hood paint, try dropping it in your e-tank, it will loosen that paint and save some elbow grease----As usual THANKS for the great videos--Lee

I found a plastic drum and it seems to work great-particularly with smaller pieces too. I installed a drain valve in the lower side before filling, as moving a full can around can get heavy!! I use a 36 VDC golf charger and it makes a difference in time, but I keep power low on small pieces , because they will heat up.--Lee

I found an easy way to remove the decal from the front of the hood. I have a propane torch, I heated up the decal so that it was blistered and cracked and then the wire wheel took it right off.

I will have a video later.

I took the grill down to the body shop tonight so that the top edge can be fixed.

The seat that you mention, is it a seat on rails to adjust it forward and back? If so I think it's the same on that I just bought and put on my 12H. My only complaint about it is that its not as wide as I would have hoped it to be.

Just noticed your post on removing the decals with a torch. If you have a heat gun that is a bit easier to control than a torch and will get the job done. I have to remove them on my MF8 as I'm getting ready to prep the hood and fender deck for paint.
