I have a 90% completely restored 1967 MF10. Painted and rebuilt engine, almost ready to go. I just need someone to help make a wiring harness and hookup the drive belt, which will require the machining of a pulley. The tractor is located in Austin, Texas and has been sitting in my storage unit for 2 years. I Need to finish it. Moved, changed jobs, got laid off, you know the story, "Thank you banking system." Now reemployed and living in a apartment and no where to work on it. I am looking to hire someone with some decent skills.

:thanku: Jessica

I remember this tractor, you have a Kohler in it.
The crank, is it 1+1/8" dia.?
If so the original pulley should fit.

You need to move the motor forward, backward to put the crank in the right spot.
This is where mine is and where yours needs to be.

Plus minus 1/2" should be close enough, there is a lot of adjustment in the Vari-Drive system.

You need to use the original wide belts and pulley with the guards in place to get the vari-drive to work right.
Others have done it with K series Kohlers
Best source for parts is another parts tractor.

I'm not all that far from you (between Galveston & Houston) but I've got so many projects now that I really don't feel like takeing another. I had an MF10 vari-drive for 29 yrs, gave up trying to wear it out and gave it to my oldest son. They're tough little tractors.
