Massy 35 Deluxe
Post a Followup
||The steering just went out on my Massy. The steering wheel just goes around and around, no resistance. I have the shop manual and can see a moon key, is this the problem or is there another sheer pin some place? Is this the trouble or did the shaft break? Is this something that a guy can repair himself, not a full blown mech, but can stand my own? I also have a problem with water getting inside the steering mechs and freezing in winter, must let warm up for about an hour. Where is the water getting in?
||Hi just recently purchased a MF 135 Diesel. I was told it was British Made and a Deluxe Model. Does anyons have info on how I can tell if it is. Thanks
||I think you are right that it is the moon shaped key that locks the well to the steering shaft. If the wheel spins all around then you didn't strip a gear off the worm gear. Water leaking in to the steering box is a common problem on the MF-35. Replacing the felt ring under the steering wheel will help keep water from running down the steering column. You can also do what I do which is always park the tractor inside.
