Almost done with my restoration.  Still need to finish the hood and belt guard, throttle and choke cables and I am going to put a small stack muffler on it.  I rigged up a throttle and took it for a ride.  could not resist since it is a nice day. Oh yea, who's job was it to remind me this is a 3 speed gear box and not a lawn tractor hydra transmission.  I forgot to throttle down before I took off in high gear.  I thought I was going off the back.

LOL! on the launch!

 

 

Looks great Wade! Just be sure that input shaft brake is working and the pulley is stopped before shifting. These trans parts are like non existent.

 

I do love the massey look to it also!!  Look forward to more updates!

Chris,  I know what you are talking about.  I still have to add the stop to the brake linkage I made. I made sure I let the linkage out so the input pulley stopped before i shifted gears.

That looks very nice. You must have a lot of hours invested. Can't wait to see it when completed.
