So last weekend I did a little bit of work on the massey not quite done but I got the gas tank to work on its being de rusted and some bracketry to work on and the clutch is almost done. At this rate the craftsman may be driving before the massey lol

That diesel is the cats ass. Great stack too, if you want maybe look into doc's MULE II's breakaway stack, or if you want just brace it. Sh*t happens and she might spill over

I like it, gives it an outlaw feel with it being out to the side and its also something you don't see all the time. Good job

I actually have a piece of flex pipe I am going to put in where the long piece of straight pipe is just cut it throw the flex on and a couple hose clamps the bracing is still in the works :p its actually conduit and some sced 40 fittings the stack itself is made of a piece of right angle bend I got from the local builders supply just drew a line in line with the inside of the straight section then sliced and filed flat. I was going to sand the welded sections a little flatter then someone said something about exhaust wrap so guess I am going that route lol

so I have started debating front tires for the massey I currently have the snow hogs on and while they have excellent traction and turn her pretty good I dont really like the look doesnt really match the old school look so I am debating options.

Moose's Diesel Massey - Page 6 13483_700x700

Currently on the massey

Moose's Diesel Massey - Page 6 SC1_WD1085

Old school ribbed front tires would look cool but wouldnt give much in the way of traction

Moose's Diesel Massey - Page 6 13X5-6-AG-1

I am not really a fan of using the traction lug tires in the front but I think they would kinda match and keep the old school look to it a bit

I doubt Ill be racing it which brings me to the ribbed tires but I know they wont perform as well in snow and mud which brings me to the traction lug and the snow hogs which also work with trail riding so I guess we will see what happens in the near future. Input is appreciated!

20 is a little to much I am trying to keep them under 18 so they dont hit on the engine or panels anything bigger and they catch on stuff

Teaser for the video I did this morning got the fuel tank in got it plumbed found out my throttle cable is the right length just not enough wire sticking out so going to have to figure out how to unwind the wire wrapped around it. Also for some reason it is almost like it is running out of fuel when it is running I have to flutter the throttle to keep it going or it just putters out... Air in the lines? I will bleed them before work and try again. Clutch is in but doesn't work so I will have to figure out something for that will discuss it with stretch Sunday maybe get some input from someone that has been doing this sort of thing longer than I.

First I'd check to see if the belt was long enough, I've had problems with that on my never ending projects lol  Razz

I think the belt is the right length but I could be wrong it has a lot of slack when the clutch is let off but I may end up having to redesign it hopefully it doesnt come to that

ok guys I beat the hell out of her and she quit squealing so she runs she steers and best of all she drives >Very Happy I romped her a bit but turf tires can only do so much :p I was bulldozing small trees cutting ruts and mudded a little. Lost the belt twice so I am guessing I will have to set up guides or something, clutch doesnt work great so you have to be really fast slipping into gear or she grinds.
Anywho my checklist is shorter and Ill post a romp vidyah later

To do:
Paint
Lock the rear
High/low lever
TIRES!!!! (eventually)
Skidplates and belt guides
Brace the front end )just in case(

well hope you guys werent expecting a really good romp video because just as soon as I started trying out the high gears I put her into the cabbage. Rolled her into a deep ditch alongside the road. It does a good job of illustrating why you need steering stops because just as soon as I started turning the wheel slipped turned sideways and rolled down the side of the ditch ejecting me into a nice cushy pile of brambles... So now I have a bent rim and a lot of scratches!

The tractor ejected me before it really rolled so I landed and had time to look back up and see it rolling down in front of me I had a split second to think "man I need to lock that differential" before I had to get up and shut her down.

Ill post a damage report video tonight so yall can have a laugh :p

Ok so I drove to Mansfield yesterday to show off the massey and all that fun stuff. As soon as I got it off the truck, and stretch was able to stop laughing at my belt system :p we ended up rebuilding the entire system lol it may have worked the way I built it but it would have taken more work ate up my ground clearance and been not as reliable.

So in true mowrons fashion and out of the kindness of their hearts they taught me a lot about how to engineer a belt system and build a solid reliable machine! And that they did the massey is a pretty serious ride now thanks to the years of experience they were able to share.

I'll post a video maybe tomorrow sharing the differences and maybe a romp where I don't put her in the cabbage.
