AL Farmall Boy wrote:looking good! If you need/want to order some Massey Parts for that planter, I know just the place. Friend of the family owns a MF dealer and they will treat you right on anything you need. They'll be appreciative of the business. E.A. Nelson Company in Florence, Alabama. They also carry a wide range of parts for other tractors with competitive prices too should anyone need anything.

Thanks for the info!

Made 2 new bushing for the hopper drive gears. Turned the shoulder bolts down to make them round again and made the bushings smaller I.D. to match. Tight now!

I was blessed to get the rubber off the wheels without messing either one up!

The wheel holes were pretty wollered so I made a couple collars and welded them on. They are ready to be burned, blasted and powdercoated.

Very nice work! Always impressed.

PS: My wife loves that "Flea Market Flip" show and if they found those wheels, they would have turned them into coffee tables :lol: Thanks for saving them.

No point in fixing the wheel if I'm not going to fix the axle. Holes were wollered out and not in line with the others.

1 hopper is almost ready to be put back on. Had a few dents & bends but nothing major. I decided to leave the original decal on it for now until I either find some or have some made.

Someone scratched the settings in the lid with their pocket knife. I also taped up the original settings decal under the lid.

There's a little meat left on the bone with this fertilize stuff. I'll see what I can do with it.
