LOL. Yes, I'd say you have a dinner date soon.


Yep, We had dinner out. The fix is working well so far (knock on wood :hitting_self_roller: ) The real test will come when good weather gets here. Like the tractor in your avatar. Do you have more pictures of it? Rick

Search "ELF" in the search box. You might find a short thread on it...

Just joined the executive club.  Found this 8E on the side of the road, growing grass.

serial number

looking forward to restoring this and getting the mower deck up and running this winter.

Any pointers on parts, paint, decals would be benificial.  I am going to make my missing battery cover by the provided info in the post above, and hope to find the missing grill or the material. 

Only problem right now is that the steering is frozen, any thoughts?  Will try PJ blaster, possible soaking in oil, or elec bath.

Wow, Nice find. Hope the missing pieces are easy to replace and the steering frees up.
From my understanding, you want to be careful with the axles on these units as replacements are nearly impossible to find.

Be sure to also do a Member Introduction ( http://gardentractor...-introductions/ ) so everyone can welcome you properly.

Thanks for sharing the pics, love the Executives.

Hi rpage.

Welcome to GTT. Nice to see another Exec, that'll be saved

from the scrap yard. That's a 1964. They used the same foot

rests (clutch on left) as the 1963 MF7Exec. The 1965 8E used

checker plate foot rests, and a separate clutch pedal on left side.

 

I can help you out on decals, and depending on where you are (shipping

costs) I can also help you with grill material.

 

Are you familiar with agcopartsbooks.com

 

There are also manuals/brochures available on the site here.

 

Looking forward to you starting a restoration thread.

 

Will

Thanks Will, I was hoping you would chime in.  I was curious about the year, I guessed 63, but after looking at the pedals as you mentioned 64 sounds great.  As far as the decals, SOLD, and grill material would be great as well.  I will be starting the restore around dec.  Thanks again, I am looking forward to the restore as well.  Not sure if I will go with powder coating or painting. 

 

Thanks!

I was doing some work in Massey Hall the other day, and had to

get some of the Execs out of the way.

I thought I'd share these pics, because those Execs are just so darn pretty.

:D

GREAT lineup Will

 

I thought Canada had some law or rule that you could only own two Executives at any given time.  You have too many.  Send some south.

No rules like that, up here. At least, as far as I know.

If there is, well that's too bad. Rules are meant to be

broken. :smilewink:

Would this be a blade for a Massey Executive? I have a chance at buying it.

Grab it, if you can.
