The throttle plate must have gone somewhere!

I wouldn't think it would make it thru the valve very easily, it's possibly in the intake area under the valve. there's a little room in there for it to be so you may get lucky and find it undamaged. Make sure it's flat if you find it.

Spent another 8 hours standing at a barrel Sunday and sandblasting parts, things are moving along nicely, also parts ordered and bought for members have started coming in and have all surpassed my expectations. I love it when a plan moves forward smoothly. I plan to accually start reasemble at the end of this week, yee haa! I would like to say thanks to all of you how have helped with many things including support and wisdom.

You are making a lot of progress on it. The frame looks great. I hate sandblasting but it is quick as opposed to electrolysis. I think I will like blasting much better once we get a cabinet.

Keep posting the pics, I like seeing projects come together.

Frame is looking good. Sounds like we get to see more painted parts before long.

I have't touched the motor any more yet except to pull all the sheat metal for painting, trying to keep things organized as much as possible. I have been very busy around here lately with the horses, bulls, garden, work and three kids now out of school for the summer, " single dad". But I am still findimg time for Massey and that is my R&R.

Your frame looks great. What color is that? Sounds like you are making good progress on your restoration. Most people don't realize how much work it is to completely tear down a tractor and restore it.

The frame in the picture is from a 1966 model, it's missing the center rib under the engine, I think you will also find 2 sets of engine mounting holes.

First picture is a 66 frame, 3rd shows the later models with the center rib.

Also you might find on the rear plate no holes for the tiller spring assist bracket.

I did not get the wheel out, I didnt even open the check envelope. But it looks like you sure are going to need it with you blazing through
