RE:Massey Harris #2
Hi John, thanks for the engine numbers. Mine is 1533 I think. I believe this engine is newer than most others I have seen because it has a different style engine tag than most. Maybe it had been replaced at one time?

Also how did you tell which one is older and newer?

I do not have a Kingston mag yet but I have found one a friend has. I talked with our mag rebuilder and he said unless you are really stuck on having one don't buy it. I guess they are incredibly hard to find parts for and according to him they don't work great on slow speeds and starting spark is a little weak. I still might get one but am planning on a good brass Bosch.
but I have been informed that I have a lot of work to do before worrying about the mag and paint colors!
