The Light Utility Trail Tractor

This is my new build, i just could not resist modding it. it wasnt in good enought of a shape to restore it or to mow with it so nothing is lost..

this build is going to be a light utility oriented trail tractor, so pulley swap for about 22mph, and an alternator, winch, bumpers, lights, locked diff, better tire...

Specs:
Massey Ferguson MF-7
8hp falthead briggs, ungorverned
3spd trans h pattern dont know the model yet
pulley swap soon

right now im srtipping all the old paint of, the previous owner painted it with water based paint so now 20 years later it looks nasty..

got the fenders stripped and primed
got the front grille and the hood stripped, priming tommorow
new paint is going to be the same as the original should be.

Should be an awesome build man! That trans looks interesting. The shifter housing looks to be that of a Peerless, but who knows. Are you gonna upgrade the engine or leave the 8hp flatty in?

Yeah should be cool. Keeping the 8hp flatty i want something small light and good on gas so itll be perfect.

Tranny looks like a baby 633

Ah, makes sense. Maybe some performance modifications to giver 'er a bit more grunt? 22mph and an alternator might be a bit too much for it stock.

Ill see. Im not sure about the 22mph i want a fast trasport speed but with only 3 speeds i hope 3rd is really high geared.. But im sire the 8hp would keepuup with the speed and for the alternator ill have a smaller battery it should be allright.

LUTT....hmmmm.....cool name.....wonder where you got it from.....

Should be fun lol. Whatcha thinkin for tires and an exhaust? Gonna do some performance mods to the 8hp?

I'm pretty certain that trans is a Massey trans. I know they made their own for a long time. I've seen a few with Peerless 600s and 2300s though.

Good luck! Hope this build doesn't inherit any bad luck from the name...lol

i actually went on your build after i saw the ressemblance, couldnt see what it meant ? really wasnt trying to gett the same name, but now that i think about it, it probably means the same thing... does it ?

yeah tires are going to be around 19inch, probably some v threads, donno yet, for the front i might get some cheap knobbies, they work fairly well for what they are. engine is going to be stock other than custom exhaust and ungoverned, i might ditch the alternator, after all. exhaust out the back with a custom muffler.

yeah i bought it because i thought it had a 600 peerless, but i was wrong, i still dont regret buying it because i kinda like it. gonna have to open up the trans soon to see how im going to lock this.

I think I came up with Multiple Use Terrain Tractor or something like that. I called her Mutt because when I got her I noticed she was something somebody put together from two or three different craftsmans. Plus then I used a bunch of other parts from mostly snappers lol

19s? I think that's a bit small for what that trans can handle. I'd go like 22s with 19s on front, if I had the choice. Your tractor tho lol
