I picked up this 1975 MF16 in Sept. It came w/2 decks that are in good
usable condition. The tractor was in good running shape, except for a couple
issues like rubber motor mounts, and some slop in the steering.
Feb 18th, I put it in the shop and tackled it.

Here's a few pics of the work in process, and the pics are of what I did
today. I'm waiting for the motor mounts, so I decided ths morning to
installing a 3pt that I had ear marked for this machine. Every thing
else I have pretty much done, ready for final assembley.
The 3pt is off a 1450. I didn't want to mangle the seat pan, so I made
up a stand off bracket. It took a bit of tweeking, but it's going to work.

I'm going to use a solenoid valve, and a toggle switch, and pipe the valve
into the return line from the deck lift valve. The valve will be under the seat.
