Some of you may have been here during the era of the scrap massey. It was found by member WVBuzzmaster in a West Virginia junkyard and eventually it ends up being mine and winning the second ugly tractor contest. Also, two weeks ago, Casey noticed it was in the lineup of the derelicts... It was there for convenience and what the heck, it's already ugly...

Anyways, it was out earning its keep today. This is the tomato patch KK plowed yesterday.

It developed a pretty healthy oil leak behind the flywheel. That engine is going to have to come off soon. :(

Great videos! Glad to see it's still going and able to work. Might need to work on the forward speed for better control when tilling, though! Good job, Ryan!

To believe you would be attacking a company that's not around to defend themselves because of exactly what you are saying... :D

Well done Ryan. :thumbs: The hydro seems a bit jumpy. Have you lubed, and tensioned

the friction plates?

I noticed, that the old guy with the camera, was getting in your way there.

Good of you not to run him down. :D
