Well, it rained last night so I decided to hold off on going to the show at the old engine club until tomorrow. I made new brake linkage rods,painted the lift lever, finished up some details, and took the tractor for a ride. Everything works as it should so it's ready to go. All that's left is to install the draw bar and I'll do that next week.

If anyone can take a heap of iron out of the weeds & rebirth it you can. This looks like a jewell. I know you keep things original as much as uou can but some of the colors have got to be hard to find. These colors look great. Enjoy your work.

Thanks guys, it was fun restoring this one. I took it to the show today and there was a lot of interest in it. The weather was perfect and the turnout was pretty good. The weather on Saturday was hot and humid Grump, and I had to finish a few things on the machine anyway. It rained at the auction when I bought the tractor here and the place was a mud hole. People were constantly getting stuck and it was no fun. While talking at the show I lined up a parts Gibson tractor and possibly a Shaw with a Wisconsin twin. I met some people that I haven't seen in years and the people in the local tractor club in my town are talking about having a show in our town. Overall it was a good day.
Sawdust, I used Duplicolor racing green engine enamel and Ace rust stop regal red on this tractor. These two colors are very close to the original colors of this tractor. Dragging forgotten machines from the weeds or buying basket cases makes restoring them all the more fun. Some people at the show remembered this tractor from the auction. One guy asked me if I slept between then and now and I said "Yes, one day" HA! The guy with the parts Gibson tractor has a Page tractor and lives close by. He invited me over to see his collection, so I'll be making plans for that soon. Here are a few pics from the show.

That last picture looks a lot like my Massey exec.  when I first brought it home.   Different hood but the rest of it is a lot the same.

The last pic is a Porter Cable CRFarnsworth. It was for sale for 75.00 , but the guy took the for sale sign off of it after we talked. He decided to put an engine on it to get around at the shows. He's wondering what engine to put on it and it looks like a 5hp Briggs will work.

I would have taken that for $75.   You don't see them around here.

My Massey is supposed to have an 8 hp kohler w/ a S/G.   It currently has a 6 hp tech off of a go-kart.  It's OK but.........

I need to get busy and find one with the correct brackets to hang it off the front side of the engine.       Rick

It was one of the best days of the summer so far GB and thanks! Jay, he was an older guy that I just met today and I have his contact info. I told him that I would look into the correct engine for that Porter Cable and get back to him. He's not a collector, he just wants to get it running and ride it around. When I call him, I'll ask about the tag since I didn't take a pic of it. Thanks for the info in the engine. He has a bunch of engines kicking around and might have a 143302.
