Not to worry. It WILL be as original as I can get it. NO dragster.
And, thanks.

Yes, totally different machine from the 7-16 series.

Got a few more parts back on this evening.
Judging by the front shot, it looks like I was succesfull at the axle
straightening deal.

Also got all the motor tin sand blasted, and primed last Thursday.

Will, that is a great looking rolling chassis. My MotoMower never made it to that stage, great work.

Alan, I don't think that is the work garage, only for show. Then he doesn't have to clean up to take pics!
Great job, Will! Looking good!
  • MH81 and IamSherwood have said thanks

The tractor looks amazing Will. I also like the tool wall behind it in the first photo.

I got all the engine tin back on, and install it. Had to rebuild one of the mounting
plates. Not sure why, but someone had butchered up the whole engine mount
set up pretty badly. In fact they had the rubber mount on the wrong side of the
mounting plate at one corner. But that's all fixed now.
Next is to make up gas tank straps to replace the gear hose clamps, and paint the
last pc of tin.

Very nice work, Will. The shop looks good as well. Someday hopefully I can get a bigger shop so I can have a tractor in it and still walk around.

Thanks Maynard.
That yellow is straight from the MF dealer. I don't have the part # handy.
It's really bright.
