I thought I would put this up here and see if there's any interest. This tractor needs to go as I need the shed space and just would rather keep my Executive and MF12 for my Massey Collection. This tractor is too big. I have had it for around ten years. When I acquired it the engine was blown. I bought a different K341 engine (supposedly good) but found it needed to be overhauled. All of the machine work and most of the reassembly is done on the engine. It was bored, valves done, new balance gear bearings and keepers, and the crankshaft was turned. It just needs the new piston and rings installed but I do have them to go with the tractor. The engine has been under cover in our dry basement. The tractor has been kept in the garage. When I bought it all of the gray paint was surface rusted and I had sanded it down and painted the sides of the frame rails and the side panels with the correct Agco/MF flint-gray. The running boards could use to be done also as well as the grill. I had started stripping and bead blasting the outside of the gas tank but last summer but did not finish it. The rest of the tinwork is straight and in good condition. It also needs the left rear axle seal. I have the seal to include with the tractor. Price is $850 as-is where is. If there is interest I will work on getting it to the front of the shed so it can be seen. It would make a nice tractor when completed. The pictures show the condition before I started working on it. I have not worked on the red-tinwork it is the same as pictured.

Due to a lack of interest in the tractor's current condition, I have taken the engine back to the machinist for him to complete its reassembly. I will then install it in the tractor and get it running and driving before listing it again. The price will be higher then accordingly.

Still working on it..... Gas tank and straps are now painted, grille shell blasted and primed, hoping to bolt up the engine tomorrow. Will either have carb rebushed or order a new clone. Where I am at now with the extra costs to get to this point, price is now $1000.

Well shoot. Got the engine bolted in the frame and went to hook up the driveshaft but the holes in the flywheel were 5/16 instead of the 3/8 needed to mount the driveshaft. Turns out I took the wrong flywheel to the machinist, it was instead one from a 214 JD. Has also been fun finding all the parts I've lost along the way on this 11 year project.
