I'm starting to repair my MF 1450 and was wondering if anyone on this site has been down this road and could provide me some help. I'm unfamiliar with these machines, but I'm excited to get to work! I have a manual thanks to this site, but I couldn't find the answers I needed.

1. The 3 point hitch has a top bar to attached to implements. The mount on the tractor broke and is missing. Does anyone have a picture of what the mount looks like and where I could get one? New or used. I can send pictures if that would help.

2. There is no parking brake. If I depress the clutch/ brake i can stop, but when I put it in park, it doesn't work. How would you approach this if you were me? Is there a parking brake that eventually needs replaced, or probably an adjustment?

3. The rear PTO isn't turning. It is turning underneath the tractor, but it is not turning the PTO on the back. The gentlemen I bought it from said the PTO needs a new adjuster spring. Do you know where I could buy one of these and where this spring is located?

Thank you all for your help.

Hi

1. Are you talking about the top link? Post pictures of what you have.
Below is a picture of what you should have sort of.

2. You need to do some adjustments to make that brake/parking break work properly. Did you down load the service manual?
I'm pretty sure that's covered in there. I played with that on my 1450 some time ago. Very finicky.

3. Sorry can't help you on that, but if you look at agcopartsbooks.com and identify the part missing, you should be able
to still order that from a MF dealer.

I will try adjusting the brake based on the manual tonight when I get back home.

I think I need to go visit an MF dealer and see what they can do to help me.

Thank you,

No, I haven't found a source for that top link.

I did however make one, by buying a longer one, and cutting the body and the threads, and then welding the shortened body
back together.

Cant buy one, there a permanent part of the hitch they dont come off unless someone breaks them, have to have on made from a 1 1/2"x 1 1/2'" block of steel, adjuster spring may stillbe available from Massey, the parts breakdon on the hitch and PTO are in the accessory parts manual section in the back of one of the parts manuals. On the brake, refer to the service manual whole section on adjusment/repair

I think Will and Frank Have you cover on the brake and 3 point.
On the PTO I would suggest going to the parts book in our manuals section and compare with you have with what is in the parts book. There are so many thing that could cause the PTO to be inoperative. If you are missing belts there are still available though your MF dealer.
