    MF 150

    Default Introduction

    Hi guys.
    Just introducing myself and getting that first question out there.
    I own a 1966 MF 150 with the Perkins diesel, which I just acquired and know nothing about, really, except it needs help. lol
    My biggest problem right now is the radiator is shot.
    Cheapest I can find for new is $500. for the MF 150. Can't find a used one.
    Does anyone know what other models would interchange with maybe a little modifying?
    MF 135's are half the price, as well as a few others.
    Thanks for any help.

    Welcome to the forum. Could you bring it to a rad shop and have them fix it.

    I wish. It's rotten. I'm surprised it holds any water at all.
    Thanks for the welcome.

    Would a rad off a 165 work. They would be easy to find like the 135 I think.

    I have no clue if the 165 would work or not. This is only my second tractor, the first being a Yanmar. No comparison.
    If Murphy buys the 135, he could let me borrow his radiator to see if it fits lol

    The 165's bottom outlet isn't turned like a 150 is, but that's just a matter of making the hose work.
    Not sure about dimensions or mounting points.
    If I have to, I'll bite the bullet and buy one for $500, but it will be under protest, as well as kicking and screaming. lol
