I need to replace the fan belt in my MF ? industrial tractor with a #200 loader and a #54/s backhoe. It has a front mounted hydraulic pump which seems to make removing/installing the fan belt a major job. Is there a simple solution to my dilemma? The belt seems to be "trapped" by the shaft that must run from the front of the engine to the pump in front of the radiator.
I also need help in finding the model of this tractor as none of the local "experts" seem to know. Here is some information: SN 9A 72490, Perkins AD3 152 engine, manual 3 speed /w high/low and manual forward/reverse shuttle, hand and foot accelerator, 3 point hitch, and the loader and hoe listed above. Thanks for any help.

You've probably got a MF203 there. I've got a 202, gas, with the 200 Davis loader with 2-bar bucket linkage (They were also available with the 4-bar linkage), with a front mount pump. It's got pto/3 pt hitch, but backhoe was a pretty common configuration instead of pto.
203 was the diesel version. 204 and 205 were gas/diesel with shuttle shift (auto reverse if you will) trans. The only time I've changed that belt was when it was split for an engine overhaul. I remember thinking "what a pita to change a belt on"! I'd call an AGCO service deptartment, ask for the oldest guy there, and find an easier way than it appears.

Thanks for the response to my post. This is my first time using a discussion forum and it is a pleasant surprise to get great help from strangers! I got the pump moved and spent the rest of the day trying to find the tool to remove the the short shaft so the drive belt can come off. Our HF store has the link belt, but I wanted to learn how the hyd. pump and shaft came apart. Didn't find the special tool, so plan B is a pipe wrench tomorrow.

Thanks for help with the model also. The confusing part is it has a "50" decal on the side, but it was repainted at some time and I noticed "20" under the yellow paint. I will try get picture uploaded if I can figure how to do it! What view would be best?

Side and front view. Maybe the dash and controls as well. Dave

By year, the tractor is a 1969. It is almost certain a 2200. Chuck

Here is a link. I have bought from them before. This belting is easily adjusted for length and it has out-performed regular v-belts for me. Scroll to the end of the page and you will find the adjustable belts.

I think your tractor could be a 202 or maybe a 2200 with a 200 loader but I'm not sure of the year. Someone like Chuck will know the year. It will help to narrow down what model it could be. Could you post a picture? I've seen the 54S hoe listed but usually with a 34 loader. Dave

Dave I think the MF202 had a gas engine if its diesel it should be a MF203 and would have planetary rear axles, could also be a MF35 utility or even a MF2135

I have a book that shows a 300 loader on a 302 tractor so thought a 202 would use a 200 loader. After posting I thought a 202 would be too old because of the 9A serial number. I'm pretty sure the 200 loader has 4 bar bucket linkage and wasn't available for the 2135. Dave

Get 2 drive belts of the same size put both over the pump shaft. Tywrap 1 up against the block out of the way as a spare. It may come in handy some day!

Hi, The shaft is a LH thread. There is a special
toolfor this,dealer should have.I have a homemade
one built using a large bolt welded to an old
pump shaft. Tap in first on the shaft to help
loosen it with a little spray lube. Chuck

I knew hf made them too, I have no brand loyalty, the link I posted was the first I found in google. Good to know they work in a pinch!

Here is the link to the belt, you have to scroll down the page, about halfway, its the red belt, don't remember which size your tractor would use, measure your belt at the widest point, and decide from there.

What you are going to need to do, is to unbolt, and slide the hyd pump forward, and unbolt the shaft at the crank pulley, and just get it far enough forward (5/8-3/4") just enough to slip a belt in. Failing that job, there is a sectional belt, used on table saws, to eliminate vibration, that you maybe able to substitute for the right belt. I have never used one in a an oily environment, I don't know how well they last. I'll find the link, you try it, and tell us if it works!

I"m about to change my fan belt. A farmer showed me how you can just pull the belt over the fan without having to unbolt anything, Of course you would need to loosen one part at the pulley as mentioned. Question for my MF 1020 I bought a 37 inch belt. Is it the right size? The 36 inch looked a tad too short. Anybody know more details? Thanks. TexasTom
