About 4-5 weeks ago, I tackled fixing the steering wheel.

There was about 6 spots, that the vinyl had been destroyed.

I coated those areas, with about 5 layers of liquid electrical

tape, and the used the soldering gun to lightly carve in

the random pattern. I then painted it with black plastic

paint. Everything looks good, but the paint hasn't dried yet. :wallbanging:

It's getting better, but it could take a while still. No picture of the

painted wheel.

Anyways, I got tired of waiting, so today I decided to finish the rest, and applied the decals

and put the red tin back on.

Simply beautiful. In all do respect for other GT's & I love em all the MF's have a certain style especially with fresh paint. Awesome job. Looking forward too on the steering wheel project.

Very nice! Keep us updated on the steering wheel!

 

One day last week, I decided the steering wheel paint was dry enough to

handle, so I put it on, finished the decals, and took it outside for some sun rays.

The wheel isn't perfect by any means, but much better than it was. I can live with it

considering how easy it was to patch up.

Are hub caps like yours have, hard to come by? Sometimes, I think it would be neat to find a set for my MF 14.

The tractor looks very nice, Will. I like the little wheel weights on it.

You don't see them very often and when you do be prepaired to spend some $$$$$$$$$.At least all the ones I came across.

Here are some pictures of the carb linkage, springs, and cables on a MF8H I've been

toying with recently. It's not the one in the thread above. Reason I'm posting these

is that, in the past it has been questioned a few times, as to how it should be set up.

I think that this particular machine has never seen a wrench. If you look at the holes where

the cables and springs connect to the linkages, you can't find any wear. This machine has

very few hours.
