RE:Downunder Masseys

I picked up this nicely restored 2 hp Sundial stationary engine. This will make a nice pair, coupled with my original 4 hp.  i dont know why the photos are sideways, so my apologies.  I had an interesting phonecall last week and after chatting to a fellow enthusiast, it turns out he is one the original McKay family.  What a turn of events, I may be sending parts back to the McKay family in Australia.

RE:Downunder Masseys

I found another one. My sheds are now officially overfull. What a terrible situation to be in....But what fun collecting Massey stuff.

I was given this one today by one of my staff who recognised it straight away as something I could be interested in. Its certainly the right price . The S/No is120816.  The motor turns freely. I am interested in the rear wheels that i havent seen before, also the carby bowl which is steel.  All the others I have or know of are brass.  Regards Buck

RE:Downunder Masseys

 Hello Mate
I believe all the 120000 PA"s and 140000 CH's had the steel or cast i think carbs.
Could you possibly find one of these carbs for me???? Dennis in USA

RE:Downunder Masseys

Hi Dennis, thanks for the info.  Yes, I did get the other from rim.  I will certainly keep a look out for a Carby for you. I'll make a concerted effort now that I know they are a bit different. Regards Buck.

RE:Downunder Masseys

I can see Dennis will be on a "hunting" trip to Australia soon, he knows there is a spare sitting on my shelf here in UK, those red PA Kingston carbs seem to be hard to find, especially where Twin Power Gasoline tractors are more common,
Note the different air inlet to the brass ones, these cast ones are made for a rubber hose connection to the air cleaner steel pipe.

Happy Hunting Dennis.

Very nice tractor to ad to your collection Buck, is that next winter's project??

Malcolm.

RE:Downunder Masseys

Dennis,

I will keep looking and when I find another it will have your name on it, just want to keep one spare on my shelf, you never just know when it may be needed.

One thing I forgot to mention on my previous post regarding these cast carbs is the water injection blanked off with a core plug on the carb, as the red dual fuel PA's and CH's only had a single tank for petrol starting, no dual round tank like the green unstyled tractors.

Malcolm.

RE:Downunder Masseys

Hi Dennis, all of the red and green PAs that I have and know of in Australia are dual fuel, , double round starting tank and no water injection. I am yet to see one with water injection or single fuel over here. I cannot even recall a single fuel in any model.

RE:Downunder Masseys

Buck,

As far as I am aware all PAs and CHs exported out of N America were petrol/paraffin.

My original import green PAs and CHs - petrol/paraffins - have the facility as well as my two 12-20s.  So too does my imported green CH - also a petrol/paraffin.

My red CH's and PAs, recent and original import petrol paraffins, have no water gadgetry be they original or recent imports.


I don't know whether this mystifies or clarifies but other may have observations on the subject.

John
