Ryanp, :welcome: to GTTALK. That's a nice tractor you have there, my son has on like it. I think by 69 they had switched them all over to the electronic ignition. May want to do a little looking around here... The electronic systems have been covered a couple of times in older threads.

Thanks for the quick reply, and the info for the electrical system. The tractor came with a service manual, and I'm a mechanic by trade but if I run into any trouble, this will be the 1st place I'll go

I love the Massey MF10 and MF12's. Just for reference there is a serial number / date sheet in the manuals section that covers the Massey MF7, MF8, MF10, MF12, MF14 and MF16 :D

When you get around to restoring, and if you're contemplateing new belts, do yourself a favour and
buy them from the MF dealer. Many have tried to find subs, but they just don't cut it.
The MF belts aren't cheap, but they do the job.

Oh, and we must see pictures.:wewantpics::wewantpics:

How do the mf10's perform with the rotor tiller on, and the mower deck. Both attachments seem pretty big for only 10hp

It has enough power to drive the 42" mower deck no problem, and with the 22" tiller it doesn't even know its there, never tried one with the 38" wide tiller yet.
Nice looing tractor, somebody spent some time putting that together, the cap, rear weights, and the snow blower looks like its for something else not a Massey blower??? Good stuff.

Sure looks like a work horse.
Do I see a CB mic cord hanging down in the cab?
Looks to be in really good shape.
Tweak it, and you'll have a worker for years to come.

The cab is a homemade deal. As for the cb lol its just a rubber tie strap so the door doesn't open too far. The snowblower is also a homemade deal. I will be removing the snowblower and the cab. This tractor will mainly be used to till and cut grass. But still needs a little tlc, the engine leaks oil like crazy

Well figured I'd let you know what kind of work I've done to the mf10 so you don't think I'm lazy lol. Removed and scraped the cab, installed new spark plug, made a new spark plug wire. Changed all belts and fluids. Installed tiller. Removed the motorcycle pipe because it made too much back pressure for the 10, and ran it straight pipe stack for now till I find a muffler. Sounds not bad straight lol. Shimmed the front end king pins etc. Made a new steering stopper, it was missing one. Welded the hood and the hinge

So now its pretty much ready to break a new garden as soon as it dries up
