Added some switches for auxilary and headlights. Added a 12V accessory socket. I need some cup holders. Anyone got any ideas for those. Needs to at least hold a 16 oz insolated mug. I need to rig up sometime for a small cooler too.
Fuel cutooff leak (fix)
Last week I put a gallon of gas in the tank to fire it up since July of last year. I was using a different type of starter/ignition switch and it's going to work out well. After shutting off the engine I noticed a small leak at the cuttoff wheel and glass bowl on the bottom left rear of the tank. It looks to be an original part. Farmers used that cutoff quite a bit so I wasn't surprised after tightening it still leaked. I cleaned out the glass bowl and the seal just wouldn't quit leaking. I elected to to just buy another new one. Around $16 w/free shipping. When it arrived I compared to the new one and amazingly they looked identical. There is a vertical tube that stands on the inside the tank to not to get junk sucked in off the the very bottom of the tank. There is a fine mesh surronding the tube as well. The upgrade (new version cutoff) appears to be the gasket between the glass bowl and and the output. There is a fine screen inside that the rubber gasket fits nicely against and when fully assembled looks like a good seal. Pictures to follow.
Here's the part I used. Massey Ferguson Fuel Sediment Bowl TO35 35 50 65 85 88 2N9155B | eBay

So glad you sent a welcome as I have learned a lot from your pictures. My David brown has almost the same Pan seat (shape and size) that your Massey does. I need a seat and found one by typing Massey seat instead of David Brown seat. I need a water bottle holder got that idea from this thread and sometime a 12V accessory socket. More snow in the driveway today so I'll clean that up and try to post some pictures of the tractor.

Hello again Kid,
Have been trying to take pictures. problems with loading the card into the computer. seems the new windows 8 computer will not recognize the XD card. Tried to put my picture that is in the computer onto the thread with no luck. Tried to put a quote in the lower left corner of reply's No luck there either. I know it will all get done but still taking time.
I did order the seat. Put new speed nuts on the instrument cowling. New Tachometer which is working well. Fenders taped to keep the Selectomatic 780 Live Drive decals undamaged. If all will come together I will have a real nice working tractor and this summer new tires.
Plans are to get all before and after pictures together and post all.
See you later,
