    mf 135 continental gas 4 cy

    Default getting 135 parts

    Bought a used MF 135 gas 4 cy Continental couple years ago. First year ran great except for weak 3 point lift due to numerous water in the fluid events.
    Started having trouble with starting, then short rought running, then over heating (manifold & exhaust turning bright orange). Replaced the carb. & alternator got it home & after two days it threw a fan blade so did new radiator & fan then same overheating, loss of power, back fire problems. Back to the shop. Now its a totally bad down in the oil pan govenor and bent push rods.

    I know I probably should stop sinking money into it but can't spring for another tractor and what do I do with a non working hunk of metal?

    Parts for the Cont. engine seem hard to find so I am told by repair techs thus expensive and every time we fix one thing then something else related fails.

    I see where many praise the MF 135. I'd like to do the same.

    If you own a 135 gas Cont. & have found a good source of parts would greatly appreciate knowing your sources.

    If you have any thoughts, visions, insights, guesses or hunches on these problems & repairs would appreciate them as well. Since they are free I take all I can get.

    I haven't tried ordering anything or spoken to anyone that works at the location given in the attached link, came across it last night comparing clutch parts for my 135. I too have had to replace the fan (threw a blade), new bearings in the alternator and a few other parts, all part of owning one I guess.

    I do have a breakdown of the parts a local JD dealer has access to, haven't had to refer to it much, thankfully.

    Hope this gives you an idea.
