MF made a ton of these tractors and they are good ones. VERY strong and heavily built. It is not a compact, but is a good machine for getting work done. The only weakness I remember hearing about is that they like to have the radiator fins cleaned out regularly.

Ed, I hope you didn't pay too much of an "astronomical" price, considering it has MultiPower... The Perkins 203 Diesel is Great, lots and lots of torque. The MF65 is Great... However the MP is NOT. Hope you don't have Independent PTO, because your mowing plans may go down the tubes if/when the MP malfunctions. The MP/Independent hydraulic pumps are "internal", meaning you have to split the tractor to service and setup. When the MP works, it works very well... it's when it doesn't work... that is costly. I have the descendant of yours, the MF165. I have an extra set of original service manuals for your tractor, also operators manual, parts manual, electrical, etc. when you're ready to work on it. I do wish you the best, you have more hp than you'll know what to do with...Good Luck Ed.

Ok got the tractor. She runs like a top, very quiet. This is gonna definitely get a 'working restore' (I have 3 jobs booked for tomorrow on her)

Oil question, they say use straight 90 weight mineral oil. Ok, where the heck do you get this? anything 90/90W I find is GL5 EP oil. *not the same*.

Is todays 'tractor trans/hyd oil' the same stuff? I have the ORIGINAL operators manual (dated 12/63) so it is very clueless. Also, what oil filter do I use, it has 2 modern fuel filters on it.

To John Miller - if you want to part with the service manuals, parts and electrical - name a price. Im interested.

Lastly, I dont have the independant PTO - apparently that is only avail on the 165 and up. I do have live PTO, but its geared off the tranny input shaft thru the pto clutch like a 'normal' tractor (the the ground speed PTO and draft control is interesting but useless for me.

btw - CT has a plethora of parts for this, but anyone have a line on salvage parts? I need the front end spindles and hubs. The axle arms are original, but the spindles and hubs are welded on replacements about 20+ yrs old. Last question (for today) there appears to be an access place on the bottom of the tranny input, held on by 4 big bolts. She always leaks tranny fluid. It appears any gasket that SHOULD be in there, is not....I assume dropping this plate would be a valdez-like mess. Am I right?
