I finally got it finished tonite with the exception of doing some touchup painting and tweaking the adjustments on the carb.

So here are some before and after pics.

Very nice restoration. I need you to come help me finish mine LOL. What are you hiding behind the grill there and driving off the engine?

Ditto^!

I checked the build thread and nothing was mentioned. Whatever it is, it looks to be a little bit overdriven.

Looks great. Nice to see a shiny new tractor.
First thing I noticed in that pic too, was that belt going forward.
Alternator?

Job well done. :thumbs:

Great looking 12 you have there. Nice work. The wheel weights really look nice and will increase traction quite a bit. I really like the number series Massey's and yours is a very fine example. Well done!

I wish it was going to be working the dirt this weekend but I didnt get a 3point on it in time so it will just be coming to show.

Since I switched to a K series kohler that is where I hid the starter generator. The big pulley was used because its the same size as a regular kohler starter pulley.

Ahhh, that explains it. That certainly will be a nice tractor with the Kohler in it.
