Hi Guys

 

My first post. I have a 1972 MF7 that I am restoring.I thought I would share a couple of pictures.

I have everything to finish this tractor pretty much original. I started in November and didn't realize how much time it takes to sand blast and paint every little piece. 049.JPG 053.JPG 049.JPG 054.JPG 050.JPG

Very nice looking 7. They are a nice little tractor with that big tractor styling of the MF farm tractors of that time.  I hve an 8 which is mostly restored but needs an engine. I'm having trouble finding a HM80 with a generator. The flywheel is not interchangeable between my old HM80 and a newer snow blower motor.

I have the original boot for my 8 as well. It was split but I repaired it with black silicone on the inside of the boot.

Hi.

Welcome to the site.

Nice job you're doing there. Do you have any before pics you can share?

It's nice to see how they where before.

Do you have a deck for it too?
