Well, it is not in very good condition! indeed, he spent more than 15 years in a meadow under a tarp, so the damage its doing! surprisingly tires are air withstand the pressure, but it will not go away I feel!
The engine is a HH120 Tecumseh has electronic ignition the owner told me that when he took her out to inflate the tire and put it for sale, was the engine block, and forcing a little on the flywheel is come back, he put oil and penetrating oil through the candle! but it is always difficult at pmp!
anyway, I planned to disassemble it completely for a review, and I would replace it if its segments is again!
Originally, it was approved for use on public roads

the rust was biting foot steps! nine will be a remake!

Very good to see the tractor rescued. The rust has really done some damage in places. Many more years and I'm afraid there would have been no tractor left.

One of the big concerns would be if the engine is making spark or not. That piece would be difficult to find

Hello to you guys!
thank you for your welcome, of course if someone speaks French is nikel!
yes I am afraid that the coil are defective because its hard to find would, but I got a look already, and I have a good track!
I hope there was no damage in the engine, as it was blocked!
I can not control if there is a spark because the engine has a big sticking point!
I'll open it for an inventory, then I'd be set! but already the pot échapement is oily, so I can already look for segments!
if someone has an address for the rings (segments)?
sheet metal rust is easy to remanufacture, just take your time and think!

This is the first French tagged Massey I've seen, and also the most rusty I've ever seen. Not past saving though, and hope she runs again for you. Having some trouble with some of the translation. You might try Google for translation.

So this afternoon, I disassemble the cylinder head
the cylinder is like new, no scratches, for against the piston and the cylinder head are hammered, so I'd like to change it!
Then I wanted to test the ignition, but it still had a hard point when the piston is at the top! and the problem came from the ignition coil, which rubbed against the pawns of the Flywheel
So after ascending the coil, I test the ignition, but nothing, no spark!
I find the cause of the stop of this Massey!
for part, I have a track for a complete engine which has fold the valves due to high temperature cause mounted by improper candle! So the ignition coil, the piston and the cylinder head are in good condition!

Looks like something went through the cylinder. Still usable though. Thanks for the good photos. :thumbs:

That would be 1 of the screws in the carb that hold the throttle or choke plate on.
