The more I study your pics, the more I think thats not a bad idea. when you tested your hydro was it still on the frame? Might be just as easy for me to control it if I remove to the bench.-----LeeB


It was still in the frame, I took my troy bilt tiller and stretched a belt from its engine to the pulley on the tractors engine and turned over the hydro that way and then just worked the hydro handle. Just pull the plug outta the tractor engine first.


Sorry for posting the thread and not being back on since thursday guys. I've been in the middle of a Verizon outage since friday morning with no internet or landline service till this afternoon. Thanks for all the encouragement and compliments. I stripped all the little brackets and other things off the frame(if it could be unbolted it was). As of tonite I have all the frame pieces cleaned and each one primed. I am going to start on cleaning the tinwork tomorrow nite and hopefully by the weekend I can take everything to the farm to the shop where I plan to paint. I can handle taking pieces one at a time out of my basement door and priming them and then bringing them back in and hanging them, but I don't paint in the basement as it draws thru the house and stinks it up. Our farm shop is heated and insulated so its the perfect place to paint.

I'm forging along too. Seeing your progress helped me to get at it. I've cleaned lots of the tin in an e- tank but ran out of primer Sun, so some will need another bath. I soaked the large fender/seat base assembly in a 55 gal barrel with a 36 VDC charger driving the voltage and it came out virtually perfect, even in the corners of the storage area below the seat. I was dumb-founded.--------LeeB:madhop:

Chad, if you're close to your hydro, I'd like to ask a favor. RE: my new Thread in "Mechanical" on the subject of testing the unit. Is the test port for the charge pump on your hydro the same as in my pics, or perhaps different.? Did you bother testing the charge pump or just the high pressure pump? Thanks for your trouble--LeeB

Just a small update. I got all the Flint grey painted yesterday with the exception of the engine.

Just a small update. I laid down a coat of red yesterday on the parts. However my gun decided to act up part way through painting. Of course it was on the hood where it matters the most so I made a trip to the auto parts this morning and I am gonna wet sand the hood out where the gun spit on it and then respray it and give the fender platform another shot underneath this afternoon. Plus I'm going to respray some of the Flint Metallic on the footrests as I am not happy with the way they turned out. Plus I didn't use hardener on the first coat of grey and I plan to add that in this afternoon as well. Hopefully I will have some pics this evening to show. Till then................

As promised here are some of my progress pics from today. I just had to lay the fenders and the belt guard on for a pic as they were just dry enough tonite. This is the stage where I have to hold myself back as I get antsy and want to just put it all together to see it.

You are doing a nice job restoring your Massey. It does suck when the spray gun acts up especially on a part like a hood. Glad you got it taken care of. Keep up the good work.
