Last week I started this project.
http://gardentractor...o-started-5973/

On Sunday I finally got to pick up a MF8 that I'd made adeal on back in march.
http://gardentractor...ion-today-6026/

While out getting the MF8, I came across a harrow, I'd been wanting for some time.
http://gardentractor...th-harrow-6029/

After loading the harrow into my truck which already had the MF8/deck& blower in
it, he took me down to his shed.

Well last night I went back and pick up this.


1972 with h70 tecumseh. I put in a new plug, gas and pulled the cord.
I almost pooped myself. Instead I took it for a ride. I'm so damn happy, about
this one. It's all original, and won't take much clean up, that I'm debating
if I should leave it as a survivor. I spent about 10 minutes with the buffer, and the
red came up pretty good.

Very nice. I would keep it as a survivor, just clean it up and polish the hub caps. I like the Massey sticker on the back of it. Awesome deal especially since it didn't take much to get it started. Great find :D

If that was mine I would leave it as a survivor, it's really nice.
Did you remove the rear wheel covers, maybe it has factory wheel weights, they fit under the wheel covers.

Thanks guys.

No, I haven't looked under the rear hub caps. I was heavy enough, when we lifted it out of the truck. Maybe???

Quite a nice find. Really glad to hear that you were able to get it running without major problems. It does look almost too good to do any type of restore.

So, now I'm gonna switch my game plan. I've already taken the MF7 w/hm80
out of the shop, and I'm gong to focus on this 7.
Being it's all original, I want to get it on it's feet first.

Great find on the Massey, keep it as is. I have kept worse condition Springfields in original paint because once you paint it, you can't go back to original.

That decal on the back, I've got to save.
I'll put it on the fridge at home.
She'll love that.

That is a very nice find. Congrats. If it were me, I would keep it like it is. That's the way I like them.

Congrats & glad you chose driving her over the other.
