Massey Ferguson Garden Tractor FAQ

Where can I get parts?

Most parts can be obtained from a local AGCO servicing dealer, http://www.agcocorp.com If the part that you are looking for isn't available OEM, there are many other parts sources. If what you're looking for is a bearing or seal, check at your local Napa auto parts dealer or a good tractor dealer. If you're looking for sheet metal parts, steering, etc. you will need to find a source of used parts for your tractor. The MFGT links page lists several Yahoo! clubs for garden tractors where there are members with parts for sale. There are also many lawn and garden equipment junkyards in the US.

Are manuals still available?

Yes. Most manuals are available for MF garden tractors from AGCO. http://www.antiquetractors.com also has several reproduction manuals available for MF garden tractors. A manual will probably be about the best thing you buy for your tractor. For most models, owners, parts, and service manuals are available.

Where can I ask questions/get support for my MF garden tractor?

There is a very helpful Yahoo! club on MF garden tractors with many members with knowledge about MF garden tractors. Also, a good AGCO dealer should be able to help you out with some questions.

Removing steering wheels

Here is another way for you if you don't have a 3 jaw puller.
Go to your local hardware store and buy 5/8 fine thread bolt about
3 to 4 inches long with a nut [you may need a different size], remove steering wheel nut and place new nut on covering about half of the threads on steering shaft, screw the bolt down inside the nut so it's tight, sit on the tractor seat with a hammer, place your knees under the outer part of the wheel and push up against the wheel and hit the head of the bolt squarely, may take a few blows to get the wheel to move. Don't place the new nut tight against the wheel leave a little room (a few threads 2to3 ). This is how I remove steering wheels as I don't have 3 jaw puller that will work, have removed several this way even old rusty ones.
Note: always use lots of WD40 or similar penetrating oil
