I would like to post some pics from start to finish of our MF12 Restoration, taking about 6 months from start to finish. We are quite pleased with the end result, and would like to share the experience with you.2.JPG 4.JPG 5.JPG 8.JPG 9.JPG 10.JPG 11.JPG 12.JPG 13.JPG 14.JPG 17.JPG 19.JPG 20.JPG 21.JPG 22.JPG 23.JPG 25.JPG 27.JPG 28.JPG 30.JPG 32.JPG 34.JPG 36.JPG 37.JPG 39.JPG 41.JPG 43.JPG 44.JPG 48.JPG 51.JPG 54.JPG 58.JPG

Very nice looking 12G you have there.

:thumbs:

The blower is really sharp too.

Thanks for the pictures, nice of you to take us thru the restoration.

One question. What did the dealer Decal say? I can't quite read it.
Dealer decals are kind of fascinating to me. Interesting when one survives that long.

Hi Again, Thanks so much for your comments....the dealer decal was in rough shape but was able to read it to some degree.

Hello Seger,
That is one beautiful tractor. I'd like to see more about your alternator/generator installation. Also, why so many fuses? I see the added lights, but it looks like you have a number of other circuits too. I have also had to put one of these honda clones in that have minimal charging capacity, looks like you needed quite a bit of capacity.

WELCOME TO GTT!

This is a permanent magnet alternator, producing 25 amps in either rotation constant, with very very little draw on HP of the engine. We are only using one fuse at present, but have set up in advance for upcoming hard cab and lighting, wiper, and heater. Should you want more pics of this with the custom brackets, belt and pulley setup, wiring, etc, please drop us a line, more than happy to help.

That Massey sure looks good. I really enjoyed looking at your restoration. I had a Massey snow blower but I don't remember the large hood on the front. I don't think you will be sorry for taking the time to install the alternator. The one I put on mine has turned out to be a blessing.

Yes, I'm quite interested in how you mounted it, and what sort of clearance you had in the location where you mounted it. I understand about doing the wiring in advance, sounds like you have chosen to build a formidable snow removal machine.

I will take the alternator system apart and show it in steps and the measurements of the two custom brackets, the triple pulley is our own design and build.
