This oldy is new to me. It came without a carb. If anybody may know, If I put a carb on it from a 10 hp Kohler, which has the correct linkage and mount, will it lean out and hurt it or just less powerful than the correct carb ? Also if you please, does anyone know what exactly goes into the hydrostatic trans/diff/fluid pump? I believe it is all one unit as far as the fluid goes. I have read about ATF type F, Regular hydraulic fluid and dextron II but am not sure. The unit has a filter and I would like to put in fresh fluid and a filter before I test start it. More questions to come. Thanks for any help you may offer. Please excuse the repost as I seem to have started in the big tractor forum instead of garden tractor as I should have. Bill

I use type FA ATF in the hydro on my MF12, and they both use sundstrand transmissions, so I would think that would be fine, and they are all one unit. As far as the carb goes, I think it should be fine, just less powerful, just make sure you set it right, but then again I usually work on tecumseh's and not Kholers. Good luck.:goodl:[/QUOTE
Do you know of anyone who rebuilds the old MF 12 hydro trans?
