Default 101 Massey Harris Twin Power

Back in the late 70s my mom went to a farm auction(dad was working and could not go) and bought this Massey Harris tractor and a buzz saw for $148.00. It saw many years on the saw cutting firewood to heat our house. In the late 80s I helped dad put hydraulics on it so a landleveler could be used with it. Later a mower was added also. In 06, I built a new house and shop, borrowing the tractor and landleveler to prep mthe pad for my shop. While using it, I managed to break it, so when the shop was finished, I started on repairs and restoration of it for dad. It was finished in 09, just days before the local tractor show and threshing bee. After several years of having it restored, this past weekend he gave the tractor to me, as it was mainly just sitting in his garage. So here is my new toy. Pics are from him driving it out of the shop after restoration, and at the show the next weekend.
