Hello,
I am a newbie to this site so here goes... I just inherited a nice old Massey MF-7 lawn tractor. It has a snow blower attachment and a mower deck. Good part, the engine is fine. No issues. The bad, the chassis is rolling okay but the related parts are in a box that the owner's son used to collect them as he took it apart. Why I'm not totally sure. The axle is intact and appears fine along with all the steering gear and wheels. My question is where do I get detailed pictorials of how the various springs, rods, bolts etc go together and where do you all suggest I start for parts if I need them. I did get some help from the local M-F dealer and I downloaded the available manuals and such on this site. They don't give enough detail to help.
FYI I am a retired shop teacher and this project is well within my talent. I've heard that this unit is a bear and worth the attention.
Thanks to all in advance.

Welcome to the forum! I have an MF8G which is nearly identical to the 7 other than the engine size. Do you have a hydro or a gear drive 7? I have some pictures of mine in various states of disassembly which I can send to you. However my machine is gear drive. Do you have the parts diagrams? I think they are available online at agcopartsbooksdot com. The old MF's are a great little tractor and very well made compared to most of the new mowers available these days.

Have you tried going to Agcopartsbooks.com online and enter as "guest" in the lower right corner of the page? Try searching for 7 tractor under the Massey Ferguson brand name, it may bring up the parts books for you. Then you will see exploded diagrams of the parts. That may help you.

Don't know why I can't edit. There are a lot of results at the agco site, just keep looking for the "7 tractor" and you will get it

Welcome to GTT Redraider. I have lots of pictures too, of my 7 and 8 in various stages of resto.
Let us know what you need to look at, and good luck with the project.

Well thanks for the grand welcome! I will take your advice that you all suggested and check those sites tonight. BTW, I was riding around my yard this PM after figuring out some basics on the pulleys that were all messed up. She rides fine, all out of adjustment but have lots and lots more to fix of course but it sure was cool riding around the house. I felt like Eddie Albert on the old tv show "Green Acres" as I bounced all over. Also I'll contact those that have helper pixs if I start to use too many four letter words...

PS. Can't wait to see if the two attachments work. Maybe hope for some late snow to check the blower, naaa!

Will post pixs later. Again thanks for the warm welcome.

Just looking through the classifieds and the MF7 for sale is a twin of mine, including the blower and mower attachments... Must be a popular setup? Wish it was close to home.

Problem is now how to budget my time between this new project or my 1938 Packard, 1940 Chevy street rod or the Corvette? Guess the cars have to wait a few days...
