RE:Valve Spring Failure on Massey 25
Very good observation Graham, it will be interesting to see how many surviving tractors you list, I am sure there are a large percentage of the what was produced surviving and the majority of them seemed to spend their working life in Western Canada, so you are in the right area to locate more. In the 20 years I have been travelling North America and Canada it is amazing how they are gradually re distributing around the world.

So the three original UK imports are 74386, 74745 and 74748, In the mid 1980's I had the remains of one from Nicholson's of Faldingworth who you will remember well, I could not find any trace of the serial number but often wondered if it was 46 or 47 as I am sure it would be a batch sent over here on Lease Lend.

Others now known here are, 71540, 73005, 73135, 73276, 73896, 74700 (H VMc Kay)
85154, 85236, 85329 and 85398

Keep us posted of progress and if I can find some photo's of the Faldingworth tractors I had in the 80's I will post them here to refresh your memories of life in Lincolnshire
