    so here is the end result of two men spraying for most of the day applying three and maybe four coats of paint in places and 8 liters of paint used .

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

    hello everybody IM BACK !!!!

    can i just say a huge thank you to everyone for all their concerns over the past few months and i apologise sincerely for keeping you all in the dark since the end of January ,
    we had to step away from the wee Massey due to unforeseen circumstances that really threw us off but i wont go into it here ,
    the brother is doing very well health wise and is currently working on his own personal mk 2 escort project that's keeping him entertained .
    as some of you may have noticed photo bucket has shafted me and blanked all my photos ,
    the bastards are looking for a lump of money to pet them back up so for now i will be using a link to my google photo album that you will have to click on to see any progress ,

    the wee tractor was put outside under cover since January and i pulled it back into the workshop on Saturday and started cleaning it down ready for its final coats of paint ,
    some of the little bits that hadn't been painted the first time round had started to corrode slightly so i re-treated them and applied a liberal coat of primer to seal them up ready for paint .

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

    i know clicking on the link is a right pain in the arse ,
    i spent all day yesterday trying to get a site that would be able to handle my thousands of photos and transfer them all over to it but i haven't managed as yet and my bastard internet is coal fired at the moment so that's not helping .



    anyway we will have to make do with this for now until i can come up with some better solution ,

    here are some pictures of what i was at today , i removed the cab and the wheels as they were only left sitting on to move her outside .

    Have you tried these- http://postimages.org/ They have recently redone their site.

    They do an album feature which may help, plus re the slow internet, I assume you resize images before uploading?? makes a big difference and is one of the reasons I still stick with Picasa even though google have abandoned it now as obsolete. It dead easy to export a folder of images all resized ready to quickly upload.

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

    evening all im overwhelmed with all the kind messages , thanks a million to everyone who bothers to keep an eye on our goings on , it means a lot lads .

    had a short day today as i was helping the brother work on the engine for his mk 2 escort ,
    i did get a wee bit done with the Massey at the same time ,
    mostly trying to figure out these blasted " quick release " hydraulic fittings that we got for the back of the Massey in case the owner wants to put a log splitter on her or something in the future !!

    anyway the problem im having is locating them in the actual " balls " using the cir clips that came with the set !!

    i hope the photos throw some light on what im trying to explain and hopefully someone on here might have had some dealings with them in the past .

    When ever I've had to deal with a seat, the plastic rollers have been worn flat on one side, resulting in friction & very unsmooth seating.

    I routinely replace them with roller bearings, & leave off the damper. Much smoother ride - especially for one with the classic "Farmer's Back"!

    Glad to see you's back on here. I have always enjoyed seeing what you do and your enthuasism and pride in the result. Shame about the photobucket debacle, but never mind. It is nice to know you's are back in business. I am looking forward to seeing further instalments for sure. Robbie.

    thanks lads , its a bit of a late one this evening but i was getting the tractor ready for a bit of paint tomorrow ,

    i had to make a bracket for the front grease nipple pipe as it would not reach due to the way the weight frame is mounted ,
    it should work fine the way it is now though .

    the other pipe is mounted behind the axle ( probably where both of them should be ) and it should also work fine there .

    we have most of the parts lined out ready for a bit of panel wipe in the morning , few small fiddly bits to hang up and we are good to go , i have another 5 liters of yellow on stand by and a liter of white for the cab roof when we get around to it .

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

    and lastly for tonight i got the old steering wheel ready for a refresh , the owner wanted to keep the old original steering wheel and in fairness its in great nick just a bit faded looking , he got some black rubberized enamel paint that he said will make a nice job of it and once dry will last for ages so i gave it a go , unfortunately my photos didn't all come out so i will take some more in the morning when i go out .



    so that's it for tonight enjoy .

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

    now before any painting started i got a different bracket from mackeys this morning for the hydraulic pipes ,

    worked out well and we got to use the quick release fittings after all .


    the new pipes i got made are a bit long but i re routed them and they should be nice and tidy once the seat is fitted .


    pictures .

    Another great job. Keep posting. Isn't it a shame photobucket have been so mean to delete all the previous pics.
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.
