    I used to work in a massey dealer ship and in the quiet times we would completely strip and paint the old tractors, 28's and 35's mainly and they got used for iragation anchors. With the exhaust we would get the thick goop out the bottom of tins of silverfrost paint, paint the exhaust and then start the tractor up on a good few revs to get the exhaust as hot as we could. Kept the shine for a good while after that

    Gav I did try to warn you back on page 4 of this thread, once you start there is no stopping and no going back. I've just started overhauling the FEL on my tractor, it's been sitting in bits in the driveway since I first started down the 'freshen up' road with the tractor. Spent a full day and a box of 5" cutting discs cutting 40-odd years of farmer repairs off it, before I could start a proper job on it.

    We had MF tractors on the farm when I was a kid, but I don't remember anything about them.

    Have you foudn the canadian rednecks channel yet? I really like his videos. He appears to do most stuff outside ... with very basic tooling. Watch how easy he makes splitting a tractor look. He has quite a few videos on the 165 as well.

    Yeah, watched their video on the 165 brakes before doing mine. 👍

    Splitting a tractor in time lapse looks very easy. 😉.

    them old pre cab tractors with no loader were only a couple hour job, when they put loaders or gason cabs on them, then they were a headache. I am doing a 70 hp fiat 4x4 cab tractor AHM in the middle of a paddock with the rain ****in down, thrust bearing collapsed.

    Hello All,

    The Canadian red neck video had a very good tip in using two long bolts that keeps the split sections of the tractor aligned. I have to keep that one in mind for a future clutch job on my tractor.

    Kind regards
    Lionel
