Its not like I'm old and forgetful.  Wait,  what was we talkin-bout?  :smilewink:

 

Doug,  the problem is I don't have but one current-condition picture of the Executive and its not up close.

I found a donor trans that was good,  painted the seat and rims,  and installed a rope start K181, doing away with the electrical system.  I did not paint the tractor.  I did detail the "new" engine and went ahead and painted the frame around the engine area so that'd all be done.  

I can't get to it to take better pictures because its buried about mid way into a building for the winter.

For some reason the tractors are piled too close to walk between.  :beer: 
The Executive didn't even get started this year and didn't make any shows.  Maybe come spring I'll dig it out and get better pics.

Edit:  Now that I look close at the pic I don't think I painted the rear rims.  I know I painted the fronts 'cause it got "new" tires.

Well with all the tractors you have I will forgive you! Did some Executives have the white grill cowl like yours? Mine got started once earlier this year but the throttle cable is frozen up. I need to get it back in the shop and fix that issue and install a different carb that came off the HH120 I scrapped. Then I need to decide what I'm going to do with it since the 12G is doing the mowing and the snow removal now. Maybe a little front end loader???

 

Hey that is your homebuilt tractor with the Wisconsin TF engine isn't it? That's another project---do something with my TF---

 

Update when you can then Kris!

No Executive grilles were factory white.  Someone rattlecanned it before I got it.

Yes, that's my Home built "Fabricobble" with the TF. 

 

If you need a project for your TF go buy a ratted out Crud Cadet Original and make a miniature Silver King tractor.  If your not real good at sheetmetal working you can cheat and start with a ratted out David Bradley walk behind hood.  Easy-Peasy!

Billy ray, Pics would be nice. Start a new thread and introduce yourself to the gang, they would love to hear the story and see the tractor. Me too.

I finally got my hands on this little ole girl this week.
I've been stalking it for about a year and a half.
My best guess says it's a 1963, same as the MF7Es.
It's in rough shape, but doable. I think the original B&S 4 might even run.
Another winter project.
Here's some pics. Basically, how I got it, except for a bath, and some tin
straightening of the hood.


That’s a beauty!!!! I would leave it as is, no restore needed. IMO

I guess this MF8e I just picked up cements my first time in an Executive club. Thought I might use this one to move some trailers around. Someone else did. Probably paid too much, but less than the craftsman it’s sitting beside. I like it so much more. Don’t think I'll be able to do a full restore, but I'll certainly clean it up & tinker around. Need mower deck & front dozer blade. The 8hp someone put in is a rough runner & I think I found a 12hp Kohler locally for $140 that I might be able to use. Will look for some weights (might make them), & thinking I’ll make a hitch for the back.

 

oops.

I'm really excited to find another Executive. I bought a 65 last year, but it is not worth taking pictures of. This one is a 64 with a very solid mower deck and two Brinley Harding attachments that are like the ones shown in the original 7E sales brochure. The tractor is missing the battery cover and cigarette lighter, and front tires have been changed to a newer style. It starts and runs with help from choke, but sounds very good with no smoke. Thanks to everyone on this website for all the valuable information, stories and comments. 

Red and yellow tractors have always been my favorite, but I may have to change that to red and/or yellow.

Was that the one out of California for $1500?
