I guess I'm a bit late in asking this, but some pics of this clutch set up would have been nice to see. Maybe Gav has some? I'd like to see how it attaches to the engine, besides the innards.

The tractor is looking great, Will! Hope it gets to make a few shows.

 

Ive not been in that far yet but I will get some pics when I do, I assume the clutch setup will be the same with Wills Briggs motor as with my MAG motor

Looking Great Will, Is that a genuine Massey battery?

I see you have sneaked a couple of bits of Massey red in there

Cant tell from the pics but have you got the wedges under the front indicators to make them perpendicular rather than follow the profile of the Alu grill

 

John

 

Thanks John. The decals for the battery, I got from GTT member DanP about a year ago. IDK, but he may have

some still. The indicators are bolted directly to the grill sides. The holes where there. I saw that in a picture, that

someone had made up metal wedges. What's your take on that? Should they be wedged?

I've got some Kenny, of how I bolted the clutch to the engine. Of course, mine is different, as mine is repowered with

a 11hp B&S. John has the original M.A.G. engine in his 2 machines. It's interesting how they had the crankshaft bearing housed in the clutch. Thanks for the kind words Kenny. Some day, I hope

to get to a show or 2.

 

 

In the first picture, you can see where the OE bearing sat, and the indexing ring, that

fit into the OE block. I machined that off, to gain some room, redrilled the housing to

match the B&S block, and bolted it on.

Here is how OE was done.

That's neat, Will! It's interesting to see how that all works. Makes a nice looking package when it's all bolted together. Got any pics of the innards of the clutch?

 

As far as showing it, I'm sure it would draw a large crowd. You do a fantastic job on restoring a tractor and this not your 'ordinary' tractor on this side of the pond!

Yes Kenny, I have pictures. Lots of pictures. I think I've taken about 450 of the Elf project so far.

Here are the clutch innards.

Both mine have black rubber wedges which I assume to be original, although I am not sure if I prefer the look without them. Also for the indicators one of mine has the ones with chrome/silver trim on the other does not

I think I'll leave mine as they are now, and change it, next time I restore it. :smilewink:

I got the wheels on yesterday, so now I can fit, drill and bolt the fenders on.

Sorry, the pics are a bit blurry.

That ELF is going to be a show stopper for sure!  I thought people were surprised at Bush Hog ever building tractors, but wait till people see this machine!  Possibly & very likely the only one in North America!

Looks great Will! I don't think the front tires will give much traction... but they definitely look pretty cool!

Excellent work on the project Will.
