DMAX, Folks,
Tthanks for checking in on me. Couple steps forward and a few back today on the little Massey.
I must say just getting it cleaned up with some fresh paint does make it look better. I will try to post some pictures tomorrow of the progress. I realized today that the right tunnel cover for a standard shift is a couple inches longer than a hydro. Forgot to check that!
So back to the weld shop for layout, cutting, grinding and sanding. Then to the giant paint booth for new gray! Tonight it looked so good next to the other tunnel cover, I had to spray that again too! Hope the bugs don't bother it!
I did get the headlights mounted and hope to get the tail light mounted tomorrow. couple trips to NAPA and the hardware storr for fasteners. Plus lots of little moves.

MH81 I have so many questions I may not remember what I need. But my biggest issue is how to wire up this engine? HELP! Need some one to talk me through this.

Must get rest now!:)

Regards,
Chris

Chris, I think I will be going up to the farm tonight, depends on what hits the fan today.
I will send you some contact info in a minute. Hope it's a question I can answer, our 8 doesn't have headlights.

Folks,

 Slow progress today on the Massey project. Took the engine shroud off to show my neighbor the current electrical system. Was able to install the tail light and rear fender decal. Of course I had problems with both. Got a masking tape mark on one half of the tunnel. Just that type of day!

Did get some pictures just too pooped to post!:)

Hope some Massey folks come to the Pioneer Steam and Gas Engine Society tractor show next week in Sagertown PA.

Regards,

 Chris

Current plan is the MH50 with planter and Ryans 10. Don't think I can get any attachments for the 10 on the load.

Did you get your wiring fixed?

I sent you a Pvt Message but don't think you've read it yet

 Thanks i read it but have too swamped to call you! I will be trying to complete the wiring tomorrow. Since it doesnt matach the original wiring diagram I will be winging it. Which usually means trouble when it comes to electrical. May have to just push it around  the show!:)

I did order $60.00 more Massey decals for the milk cans today.

Here are some pictures I promised. Remember this is just a clean up and paint.

Ok, now that I see what you mean, I can look tomorrow and see if there is any help.
There may be a line just for the lights, which our crusty monkey doesn't have.

Thanks guys!

Appreciate the help tonight MH81. Looking forward to meeting you at the tractor show next week.

Progress of sorts. installed the dash which had a scratch in it. Realized that the choke and throttle levers were installed in wrong place. So took the dash back out and painted it again.

Added all the decals that i could to the tractor. They look pretty good, some pesky air bubbles!

Regards,

 Chris

We had an engine similar to that on our log splitter.
I have no idea what spark system you have tho, it's different in that regard
On that engine, the green wire went to the ground to kill switch.

Alan,

 Thanks! I am sure when I get it figured out it will be simple enough. Just trying not to fry the system! I thought I was going to use the wiring from the Massey 7 parts tractor which looked to be more complete. So in hind site I did not do a good job of marking the wires coming out of the engine. :(

Well I have a few more details befor I get to that spot, and should be able to start the tractor and check some things prior to final electrical connections.

I am off to hunt for pictures of how the choke cable mounting bracket was done on a 8 hp Tec.

After working several hives of bees yesterday afternoon I was whipped!:)

Will try to get some additional progress pictures today too.

Regards,

 Chris

Will,

I have a different engine which has a different throttle attachment system. And My intake does not have the cast feature with the tapped hole for the choke bracket. But this will help on the choke bracket location. I am going to have to fab one that looks better than it was rigged when i got it. That picture sure helps. I will let you know how I end up. Need to get out in the garage before the heat.

 Regards,

 Chris

Folks,

We had a good day on the Massey project. Good thing since I need to take it to Sagertown tractor show Wednesday!

I tackled the choke bracket first and built a bracket coming off the outer intake mainfold bolt. I will get some pictures when I find the camera!

Completed the dash mounting and installed the steering wheel.

Assembled and mounted the grill.

Friend came over and we started the engine and found that the green wire coming from the engine is the kill (to ground) wire So this wire went on the OFF post on the switch. Next we checked the pink wire from the engine and got about 15 Vac reading. I think this is what MH81 said. Connected this to the "D" terminal.

Engine started right up, shut down worked and it seemed to be charging just a little too!:)

Installed the hood and wired in the head lights.

About the only thing remaining item is the four foot pads to be glued on the foot rests. and a strap for the hood.

Will get some photos.

Regards,

 Chris
