How is it that I missed this until now? Very unfortunate! Will, you are doing a fantastic job with the Elf! Keep it up and it will look great!

Gav, I don't know if I ever welcomed you to the site. Just incase :welcometogttalk: Also, congradulations on both Elves of your's!

A few comments you may find amusing that I received on a Massey forum about my latest purchase

Shouldn't it have a roll bar, to conform to Elf and Safety?

Well done GAV694, another bit of MF history has found a loving gnome to go to.

Perfect colour for Santa's elf.

Enoughs enough, no mower jokes!

Good luck to yours elf, Gav


John

Awesome thread guys, and excellent work with all the elves. It is an interesting paralleled thread, with now a third parallel in it. Between both Will and Gav, there is an offical ELF collection, as it takes three of anything to create a collection. And once you have a collection of anything it is free reign to buy more of it without any true justification. So run home and tell the wives, they will be just thrilled LOL.

Not sure what path you want to go down, but keep whatever one you can stand (or is that can stand you?). lol

Don't see me ever getting rid of #2. Should have never married #1. #2 is my best friend we have lots of fun when we aren't trying to kill each other. :cowboy_shooter:

Update.
Friday morning, I got more stuff sandblasted, and primed. Also, the rubber engine mounts arrived.
Today, I got back at it, and got the engine/clutch in it's final resting place. Everything lines up good.
Now, I'll finish welding that "U" channel mount up under the frame, that holds the clutch mount.
I also, have to drill, and roll pin the coupling to the drive shaft. I've also, been putting final coat, on
many of the other parts that have been sandblasted and primed.

Will, good news that the parts are starting to come in. Looks like good headway.
Every time I look at how well that tractor is built, I fall a little more in love. Nice tractor buddy.
