|Here is the MF Industrial that I rebuilt with the help of Big Dean and Jack from the MF talk board.|
When purchased, the Perkins AD4-203 diesel was so bad that it wouldn't start in warm weather without ether. When torn apart, there was not one compression ring still in one piece. It purrrrrrrs now!
I made the loader bucket, because it didn't have one. It was designed in AutoCAD and I torched the plate stock to the dimensions and welded together.
I made adaptors and mounted the backhoe from a CASE 420B that I had onto the loader frame extensions. The front pump on the MF is a bit large for the backhoe and I have to run it slightly above idle to prevent 'slapping' it around too hard.
The tires are 18.4' x 26' off of a combine that I bought at auction for 9.00!
