 MS 65

I looked at a MS 65 Diesel this afternoon. Mid 60's, 50 hp. Looked to be in good shape, new generator, power Steering Pump. Dealer is asking $5500. What do you think?

This was a good quality tractor. Very commonly seen. Also available in gasoline with a Continental engine. I think that the diesel was Continental or Perkins. And I think that they were 4 speeds with hi/low. I could see that tractor being worth that money, although few people would agree with me. But for $5500 it should be in extremely nice condition. New tires, new hoses, good metal - needing nothing at all and nice exterior too. Some MF 65s had a bastard-type auxillary hydraulic outlet which required you to flip a lever and select either the 3pt or aux. flow to anywhere else - like to a loader....but not both at the same time. This was a real drawback. They also used a two-stage clutch for the PTO. If the clutch is hard to depress or seems like it has no adjustment then be suspicious of a worn-out clutch - a major job, and fairly common in old Masseys. Are you sure it has power steering? A power steering pump does not guarantee that it has the rest of the power steering components. These cannot be added to some of the Masseys that came as manual steering originally. Make sure it was originally a power steering tractor.
If you are looking for this type of tractor you might also look at the JD models 3010 and especially the 3020. They were considered to be better tractors (and you are in the right price range), although they don't have that nice rounded profile of the older MF 65.
