    we got the roof pod ready with all the switches using a handy diagram provided by the owner ,
    we had to modify it slightly as the switches wouldn't clear the wiper motor , it should be fine now though ,
    there are little led lights for the beacon and indicators in the black grommets .

    Re: MASSEY FERGUSON 135 ( MF 20 INDUSTRIAL ) FULL RESTO .

    the owner brought down the very sought after / impossible to get MF industrial badge for the front of the tractor , i think its cool the way its shaped like a front bucket of a loading shovel , there is a slightly larger backing plate to go behind it to really make the badge stand out before its mounted , i have the measurements with the engineer and hes going to make it of aluminum for us .

    we got some other small finishing bits like the steering column rubber and a new chrome nut for atop the steering wheel .
    the owner had this led beacon for the roof also .

    the roof had a dirty great hole in it so we got the fiber glass kit out and patched it up ready for a stainless plate to mount the beacon to , there was a small hole starting to appear on one corner also so that got a rub as well !

    Re: MASSEY FERGUSON 135 ( MF 20 INDUSTRIAL ) FULL RESTO .

    helooooo , its me again !!



    had another day in the workshop , the electrician was back for a few hours and i spent a good part of the morning going around gathering even more bits and pieces ,


    i spent the remainder of the day of the glazing the front and back windows .


    but first i was finishing of the back end area , the owner got a neat spring to stop the lift arms from swinging and hitting of the inside of the tyres but eliminates the use of a nine hole bar thus leaving the lift arms free for use , i had to weld on two lugs and get them painted prior to fitting it !!



    hopefully thats the rear end done now ........

    Re: MASSEY FERGUSON 135 ( MF 20 INDUSTRIAL ) FULL RESTO .

    our go to man for tricky stuff made a great " backing plate " for the MF badge out of 3mm aluminum ( to fend off the rust !! ) ,
    its going to look well when its all mounted on the grille .

    Re: MASSEY FERGUSON 135 ( MF 20 INDUSTRIAL ) FULL RESTO .

    so then it was on to the back window , i got all new rubbers and it was a bit of a nightmare to fit but we got it eventually .

    i put it on the tractor to see how it looked .

    Re: MASSEY FERGUSON 135 ( MF 20 INDUSTRIAL ) FULL RESTO .

    then i fitted some new edge beading to all the sharp edges on the window and around it to finish it all off .

    the front windscreen was a real barsteward to piece together , i started off having to drill and tap a load of 4mm bolts that had sheared off during removal , fiddly slow job but it worked out well in the end .

    hello everyone , its me again , still trawling away at the Massey . i was wrote off with a bloody flu all week so only getting back out at the tractor today , the brother had been working away in my absence and the first thing i noticed he had done was paint the roof .

    he also fitted a stainless steel plate for the beacon to sit on and the owner had gotten new sound deadening from Logan mcmaster in the north so he fitted that as well .

    Re: MASSEY FERGUSON 135 ( MF 20 INDUSTRIAL ) FULL RESTO .

    today was one of those annoying bloody days where nothing seemed to go right for us , had the electrician in to finish wiring up a few bits and from the get go nothing wanted to work !!!! took ages to figure most of it out , silly stuff like the flasher unit was faulty ( ive a new one on order ) light switch shorting out and not working properly and the real bastard was when we started the tractor to check things were working the amp meter wouldn't work at all , in fact the tractor didn't seem to be charging at all and the diesel gauge refused to work despite everything being brand new ............ like i said " one of those days " , i had to walk away from it more than once .

    anyway the problem we found out after an awful lot of head scratching was because of the thickness of paint on the engine and where the dynamo bolts on she wasn't making a proper earth thus not creating a good circuit and fooking everything up !!!

    all sorted now and everything working as it should including the two speed wiper motor !!!!

    got the doors fitted with glass and all new rubbers , i have new lock handles to go on too just not in the picture , the new smaller edge beading finishes them off lovely and doesn't foul when closing which the old one was doing .

    Re: MASSEY FERGUSON 135 ( MF 20 INDUSTRIAL ) FULL RESTO .

    so we were struggling to get some rubber to go between the windscreen ( which can hinge open ) and the cab to prevent vibration and also to create a bit of a seal from the elements . i tried loads of places but no one had anything to suit so i resorted to a waterproof strip for around car doors and cutting the actual " squishy " bit off and bonding that to the back of the windscreen frame itself , it worked out ok but i didn't get a chance to try it on the tractor because some numpty ( ME ) managed to put the hinge part of the frame on backwards when the frame was being assembled so i had to rip that apart last thing and re-do it so no pictures of it on the tractor because the windscreen sealer has to set !!!!!
