Last spring I found this tiller, and member Motobreeder, was kind enough to

scoop it up for me, and store it, until we could find time to get together.

We met up in October, and last week, I finally got to take a look at it.

I checked throttle movement, spark, gas tank looked clean, and

clutch was in neutral. I gave it a small shot of quick start, and it

ran on first pull. :dancingbanana:  I gave it some fresh gas, and SeaFoam, and

let it run for half an hour. It tilled up the snow and ice nicely.

So, I tore it apart, fixed a few things, and because it was so nice and

mild this weekend, sandblasted it. Everything is primed, some is painted.

Nice work. Good pictures. What kind of clutch does it have? How big of a garden will you put in?

Garden???? :rolling:  :rolling:  :rolling:  :rolling:

 

Sorry, but I just find that so funny. Here is a picture of the last time, the Mrs. and i tried

to grow some tomatoes. :rolling:  We just don't have green thumbs, or the time, in the summer.

The clutch, is a belt engagement idler.

Yes, it'll be going in there. Funny that you mention the yellow/red ratio. I was thinkin the same thing

the other day. I might have to change gears soon, for a bit. I miss the smell of that red paint. :smilewink:

Will, you might have to move up to the newer 50 and 55 series Masseys to bring the Red back into balance.

I've got a MF8H to do, and am still hunting for a MF7H, and MF12G.

There's a gallon of red, right there.

Doug spied a 7H for me the other day, but it turned out to be a real wreck, and

the guy thought he had the holly grail, and priced it that way.

Smallest MF tractors I've seen for sale around here are MF10's.  I'd been noticing the yellow/ratio was out of kilter myself.  Shooting red

does smell nice!

  And yes, that is a nice tiller!  Never seen a Massey tiller in my area.

Will, if you need something to practice on... There's a couple of mid 50's units down here that need a coat :D
Different shade of Massey Red tho...

Tiller's looking nice, Will... was that part of the executive series too?

On your way home, from the paint store, you better stop at the beer store. :smilewink:

 

Yes, it's at the back of the MF7E, and MF8E brochures.
