I have always liked the looks of Masseys,the front end are just to cool.Can't wait to see yours when it's done.
Got a massey 7 (I think it said 7) Not hydro year unknown.I got it up north by the camper,used it for years mowing until rod went through the block.
Think I'am gonna drag it home this spring and bring her back to life.

I like this style of Massey, because it looks like the big ones from the 60's and 70's.

That looks to be in real nice shape. I did some cutting with it in Sept. It is nice
to cut with.

yea, grandparents quin using it 30 years ago due to it cutting uneven. I had it almost 2 years before I saw the hairline crack behind the roller support. Had it welded and now it cuts great!

I managed to get something done on this one, in between all the

winter weather activities.

The rims got wire wheeled, sanded, primed, and painted.

Front axle and tie rods too.

Today was nice out, so I got everything sand

blasted, primed, and some painted.

Can't believe how much you get done in a day. And the sand makes nice anti skid, I bet

I only did the sandblasting in one day Alan. The tires I did in between plowing, during

the week.

Yes, good anti skid material, but I scraped it up with the backhoe. Mrs thought it looked

yucky.

It's coming along real good, Will! Chassis looks real nice!

 

Thanks Kenny. That Flint Metallic Grey, is my favourite. One of these days

I'm going to do an entire GT with it.

Would you do the frame in red or the attachments in red, then? I agree, that would really look sharp.

So, just the area around the emblem? (I couldn't find a closeup of one with lights)

It's coming back together slowly.

Next I need to put a new throttle shaft (and probably bush) in the carb.

I'm in between coats of the red tin. Everything else is painted.

Anyone have any ideas, on how I might be able to fix the steering

wheel skin? maybe something like Starbrite Liquid Electrical Tape?

I'm going to post a bunch of pics, for future reference. One issue, that has come

up several times, is the governor/throttle linkage and spring hook up. I've looked at every

MF published picture I could find, and I think I've got it right. I'll post more pics, once the carb is

on, and then we'll see how it works.

Maybe just wrap it with a leather steering wheel cover ???
