I just joined this site and im hoping that someone can help me on my up comming project. I just got a massey ferguson excutive. It was painted red but under the red paint it is yellow. Any info on this type of garden tractor would be great. Like the year it was made and all that. I do know it has a kohler cast iron engine on it and the mower deck is gear driven. I do have the identification plate but I have to clean it up to be able to read all the information on it. Also would like to know where i could find the manuals for this tractor that would have the wiring diagram and all that on it. the dash of the tractor has a oil preasure gage, amp gage, ingnition, light switch, cigertette lighter, and your throttle and choke. AN Y information on this tractor would be really apreciated. One thing i would like to know is where the battery is located at. who ever owned it put longer wires on it and put the battery behind the seat on a bracket they bolted to it. I dont know much about this brand im usually restoring Allis Chalmers. Thanks in advance.
