The plan tomorrow is to pick up nuts and bolts, Paint and tires for the trailer, (hopefully a quick restore). Also a couple 15X6.00X6 front tires for RED. I'll swap his leaky ones to the Massey. The Massey's front tires hold air for 3.5 seconds before flat. This thread is for the Massey, but will have the Agra Fab 10 included, as I need to have it ready for Christmas.

Are you going to paint it to match the 165 ?

I had one of those Masseys a few years ago. Took in a trade....it had a left side discharge on the deck. I wonder if they were reversible?....Didnt own it very long.

Yep, Already started. the cart is completely dissembled, I had to break / cut some of the bolts off. I have new ones on order at Ace Hardware (the ones they didn't have). I also have a boat roller on order for the 50" deck. Stopped at TS and picked up new tires for the cart and RED's front, then I hit Fred's for more paint. Already working on decals. Lots of wire brush and sanding work left.

Just to let everyone know, Hulk II is back to normal. Slight Governor adjustment was needed. At the Tractor show and the other day when towing the trailer the rpm's wouldn't lower with the throttle. While riding I noticed the rpm's would drop when going up hill under load (should have stayed steady). I thought it might have been the modified throttle cable. So I looked in to it tonight. The Governor lever needed a tweak and all is good now.

Grrr. Painting on the 10 cart and I put the tires back together and realized they should be yellow. Quick trip to Ace and I had yellow, but first try was a total fail. I let them dry and wire brushed all the yellow and green off. Now it is working better. In-between the tire fiasco I am able to get the larger parts painted. Little windy so I have acquired a green tint (My Wife noticed)

I sprayed the bed with rubberized under coat, did a second coat on the rims, and brought all the parts in, Supposed to rain Wednesday, but a nice weekend in the forecast.

Still waiting on the pan head bolts. Finished the decals. I printed these on to translucent adhesive transfer paper, then stuck them to 3M Aluminum duct tape. Should work a treat!

Spent some quality time putting his 10 cart together tonight, He helped some. I had to hook it up to see how it looked. Not too bad. Not prefect but he is happy and that is what counts. Need some day light pictures, and probably a ride or two tomorrow.

Took stock of "my problem" today, yea, getting pretty bad when you have a tractor stuffed in every nook and cranny. I had to clear / straighten up the old shop so I can put some in there so I can move the Massey in to the work shop.

I had to do the same thing last Saturday, it sure is easy to fill up a building. I added four more tractors to my collection this year. Looks like you have a nice shop “man cave” to work in.

Decided to try and put the old front tires (but they hold air some what) on the Massey. Spindles look good, but I'll need to replace the brass bearings. I just need to be able to roll it into the shop for now. I cleaned the rims up, and replaced the zirks.

1st mistake, left the tires out over night in 40* weather. Fought me hard with mounting. Now they are sitting in the sun. Hopefully will let me air them up later. Not working right now, even with a strap.

I think I need new tires and rims. I spread red grease around both beads and took the tip off the blow gun for more volume. That got the bead to seat, and I filled the tire till it was hard, but still goes flat before I can get the valve stem in. I tried installing the stem, and it leaks too much around the bead to air up.
