This is Fry. He has a thing for Massey Fergusons, particularly the 1983 245 model, which is obviously why he’s so happy.
On the other hand, this poor tractor is so abused that I legitimately feel bad for it. It’s just rolled 600 hours and has already had two partial engine rebuilds and the latest shop did such a piss poor job with everything that it needs the engine and transmission separated again to fix most of their errors.
Under 50 hours from this last service, the engine would not stop overheating. This was the “coolant.” It smelled wonderful and contained numerous metal filings.
It needs a lot of love.
A LOT of love. Poor guy.
