Picked this up yesterday. 1965 MF8E.
All original except, at some point in time Cat yellow paint was used for touch up.
Runs, needs new fuel pump, and some TLC. Have not had much time with it, other
than to give it a bath. Also came with a 1975 MF8 snowblower.
It's built like a tank, from what I've seen so far.

The blower is off an MF8G tractor. He rigged it to fit the executive.

Congratulations! Very good looking tractor. I see you got some manuals with it, besides the blower. The pieces by the mower and front wheel (pics 3,4,&5), are they for mulching?

Thanks guys.

Yes Kenny, the plates by the deck are for mulching, or directing output to one side or the other.
The belt gaurd by the front wheel, won't fit on yet, until I remove the pully PO welded to the stock
drive hub for the blower retro.

That's neat that you can throw the grass out either side. Sorry to hear of the welded pulley, that will be fun to remove. Good luck with it.
