Any Massey Mechanics Here
I got an old 1970 Massey 165 Diesel that I need some advice on. This thing runs great and starts everytime no matter how cold it is. The Hydraulics took a dump on it though and the clutch is adjusted all the way out and gonna need to be replaced.
I know I'm not touchin the hydraulic work myself, that's goin to the dealer. My question is on the clutch. How big a problem is this to replace, can it be done at ome or is it gonna need a shop with special tools also. I know the tractor has to be split to get to it.
The dealer wants $1800 for the clutch and another $2000 worse case scenario on the hydraulics. I can see the Hydraulics but I just don't know that I'm gonna spend $4 grand to put an old tractor back together that only worth that much to begin with. If I could do the clutch myslef this would be an easier decision.
