The serial number tag should be behind the branch, under the dash, about where the red circle is.

Thanks for the pics!

masseyferguson started makeing the 12 hydro in 1967 which was before the ssi or other wise none as CDI was installed in the 12s , thats not saying that his is not a points type ignition but there where 12 hydros made with points


Thanks, I wasn't sure when the CDI was a permanent fixture vs. when they started the hydro version.

Wouldn't it be great, if it fired up, and you could drive it, all bent and twisted like that.
That'd be a great entry for Ugly of the Month, next year.

Glad you took some before pictures. Hope you get the tree off it. I just found a MF10 buried in the dirt. You can fix this one it looks like it is all there just a few dents and some rust. Good luck and keep taking pictures as you go.

I know I see a bolens but the other one I can't identify by what I can see. Maybe someone else can ID it.

Thankx for the help thus far and yes, I think its pretty straight. R-Front tire/Steering Wheel took most of the force of the main limb and from looking under the
side the front axle seems OK. I knew a little about wheel Horse, nothing about the Massey's, but knew enuf that I wasn't going to leave it there.

The Gibson might be something to pursue too! They're not as common as the Masseys, and a good machine if memory serves!

Chain saw, 2 new saw chains, 40ft of log chain, air tank and, & Oh yeah a camera, and I'm on the way to get the forest off MY tractor.:wave:

Talked to the seller about the Bolens and the Gilson (not a Gibson) No luck. He wants to keep them, for some ridiculous reason. It'll be late PM but I'll post some better pics. (If I can remember what Kennyp and MH18 taught me and then its:beerchug: You all have a nice day.
