RE:Downunder Masseys

Buck,
I am making a list of Red 25 serial numbers as there seems to be quite a lot of them here in western Canada, it would great to have the number of your 25 and any others you know    about so that I can add some Australian 25s to the list if you don't mind.
I realy like those cast rear wheels on your 25 I bet John would really like one of those in his cast iron collection.
I have a grill that that still has the factory paint and it is all red, it yours big mesh or fine mesh?

RE:Downunder Masseys

Buck,

I thought you hauled via "road trains" down under?  Where is your road train full of Massey's

RE:Downunder Masseys

Hi Graham, My 25 has the fine mesh grill. I dint know they had course mesh as well. Serial number 74104 John, my old Dodge was our local fire engine since new, my father served when it was new, and I drove it earlier on my career as well. it has done and original 45000miles and the v8 still hums along nicely at 75mph if necessary. Looks funny passing the new trucks. Buck

Hi Reuhlz, Here is the closest I can come to an Aussie road train. My old Dodge with my 102 Senior on the back, towing the trailer with my 82 on the back. Buck

RE:Downunder Masseys

Hi Graham, Got mine unseized 2 days ago and started driving around today. Runs great, oil pump and pressure good. A few new gaskets and a new coat of paint, she'll be ready for the rally ground. Always a buzz the first start after being stuck for so long. What types of PTO are there around? We have few different types to suit our Sunshine and HV McKay harvesters. Buck

RE:Downunder Masseys

Good to hear you have got the 25 running. Your PTO looks the same as we have on Wallis and Massey's here in Canada and USA, do you have any pictures of the different PTOs you have in Australia? 
The big mesh grills seem to be on the lower serial number 25s.
Graham.

RE:Downunder Masseys

Buck, Interesting to see your 25 with a Wallis manifold setup on it, is that normal in your area or did you switch it or someone else switch it at some point in it's life. Joe

RE:Downunder Masseys

HI Joe, I have only seen 3 others here in Aus, all the others have the standard vertical exhaust. I don't believe that the original owners have changed anything on it. So I will leave it to those of you who may know better, but interesting either way. It runs beautifully, however very noisy. Would have hated doing a 10 hour day on one under full load....Buck

RE:Downunder Masseys

Hi all, I'm back again. Been a bit busy. Had a promotion, run out of time, but slowing down now and spending a bit more tim in the shed over the weekend.  Brought my 55k out for. The first time in about 5 years. Just started restoring my 30k. Pic shown with my 13 y.o doing some painting.
