Hey Guys I started this just so every one would know what one another had and what they had done to it aswell as what you were planning in hopes of helping those who maybe doing the same thing and may also be interested or needing help with what someone is doing or has done.
I have a 1973 Massey MF8 AKA Haulin Mass, Its my first Massey puller it is about as far from factory as can get its been lowered in the front to the point that the bottom of the front bumper is 3.5in above the ground the 3sp trans was romoved and has been swapped for a sears AYP 6sp (3sp high and low in each gear) the frame has been cut up in the rear and recreated and strengthened, Iam still in the process of finishing the frame now. I also have had to modify the cluctch. Once I finish the frame I will be fabing up some wheelie bars and 3 sets of weight barss one for the front and one for the rear and also one for the belly of the beast. I have taken the rear fender and cut it out to accept the larger tires the rear of the frame has a new sears type backing on it to cover the sears rear all of which I created. I have added a new push button ignition a toglle switch for when the kill switch aswell as putting all the components that runn off of the battery on it so when its in the on position all electrical will work as well as it will run when it in the off nothing will work. I have added a new ammeter and soon a 5in tach with shift light will join it. New fasteners every where. It has underwent a complet tear down nothing was on the frame and everything got taken apart freshened up with paint and beefed up where needed and re assembled. I will be adding an adjustable hitch a grant steering wheel aluminum wheels 12x12 in the rear and probobly 6x6 in the front. The rear tires will be professional cut lawntechs 26x12x12 all I know about the front is they will be turf tires. The seat will be an aluminum pan.
As for my others in line I have a 1974 Massey MF12 and a 1970 MF10 they both are my next projects and I am looking for parts for the both of the but thats another story. Thanks Guys I look forward to hearing from all who chime in.

hi there
my first tractor, my grandpas 67 mf10. original owner. very good all original shape. remember riding on this as a kid, remember driving it to.... into the corner of the garage LOL. hope to rebuild the motor (sounds like its ready to let loose but has done this for the last 10 yrs), the trans(pops out of gear, hard to get in) and paint. has a next to mint deck (41yrs of mowing on it, stored inside) same for the later style blower (stored inside)
then i got a 1969 mf12 hydro. got wheel weights, early blower, marginal deck, plow, sleeve hitch, all in ok condition. motor is worn good though. will use for parts
1970 mf12 hydro. wasnt obvious till i got home but its a total piece together. i cant believe how pitted the floor boards are, the engine shroud it rotted out on the bottom. random bolts used, return spring for brake missing. might combine this and the other hydro with a 10hp diesel.
1966 mf10. propably my nicest....well mechanically tractor. tranny shifts good (has a new shift looks like) motor doesnt sound funny. had a spray can resto sometime in the past. but its 95% all there. definately will restore this one. would love to put a diesel in it but not sure how that would work with the vari drive
1976?mf14 should be here today. has a 3pt. excited. hopefully i can start to paint this week.
1855-on the look out

How could it be nicer? Do you want it to shine enough to see from space?
