MF 7 remodel
Posted August 10, 2010 - 01:20 AM
I picked this Massey up for free from a friend. The thing still ran but had no deck.
Its hood had been choped beyond repair. So I striped it down and started from scratch.
I also started on a FEL but its on hold till I can save some money for the hydro. Plenty more to do. Just a little at a time.
Once done with all the fab work I will paint to look like a Massey again (or as close as I can anyway).
Dont pay attention to the date on the pics this work has been done in 2010. Thanks

Looks like a nice little project.

Looks like you're doing a great fab job. As I see it, the only weak spots are the front axel & the tranny. I may be wrong there, tho, I'll let someone with more time around "7's" weigh in there but probably not much can be done with either of those. You've reinforced the frame, the hitch(es) look bullet-proof, great to see someone with skills save something that was headed for the crusher. Sure will be a conversation starter at the shows. Thanks for sharing & welcome aboard!!!
PS 2 more questions, what're the chains on the rear for & will the sleeve hitch have separate controls?

MH81 I know nothing about these Masseys. As for the tranny I wondered about it aswell. I know the front end is weak because it has already been welded once. I figure if it breaks I will make a new one that will hold up a little better.
I put the chains on the rear just for fun but they are pretty handy to hook a chain to and pull things around. Im not sure I understand your question about the sleeve hitch controls. It has a seperate control lever just for it. Thanks again Here is a pic of the sleeve hitch control lever. I hope this helps answer your question.
