MF 100 series US tractors, I have never seen wet brakes on either early or late models. 200 series did have wet brakes on late models. Sounds like UK got the better wet brakes before US did. My early 165 has same brake 65 did, brothers late 165 has dry brakes too, but plates are larger diameter than early models.

I wish the US versions did have the wet brakes. My 175 is a 1974 model and it's got the dry brakes but I plan on doing the wet brake conversion on it.As far as the 165, I grew up with one and it was a 1965 model. I never did really notice the vibration from the engine. I can tell you that the hour meter quit in 1980 and it had 7200 hours on it then and we used it daily until 1992 when we got a 253. I'd say that tractor had over 9000 hours on it and it is still running to this day. All that was ever done to it was two waterpumps,clutch,front axle pin, and brakes. You cant go wrong with either tractor although the 265 has a better steering system from what I can remember and it you are going to use a loader the 265 would be the better tractor for a loader.

Jez, you blokes did get the rough end of the pineapple! The English built models had wet brakes from 71' thru till the last model in 79'. They were referred to as the "upgraded" models. All dry brake models up until then, had the same diameter discs as the 65's.

When did the last of the 165's run to in the US?

The last 165s I remember being sold when working at MF dealer was 1973, but may have been 1974. Recall several 200 series sold in 1975, even they had dry brakes, but larger diameter, still 2 discs. Not sure what year multi disc wet brakes were installed.
