"No I don't think it's an attitude issue on my part."
Well in that case you'd be wrong! I never intended to insult you but was trying to to get some more accurate information to help you out. The facts are:
1. There was no picture
2. MF did not exist in 1953
3. A 30 could be more than one tractor. I think there may have been a Massey Harris 30 with no 3pt. An MF30 is an industrial tractor from the 70's and then there's the Ferguson TO 30
Going by your description, the only correct answer is an MF30 industrial but the year would be wrong.
Are we supposed to be mind readers to know what you're talking about?
