* MF 702 Progress II

Posted on July 17th, 2015 by ploughmyfield. Filed under General.


So I’ve got back from the shot blasters the remaining original parts of the Transporter I purchased some time ago.

The frame that connects to the tractor has been my main focus. The shot blasting has revealed really bad corrosion in a couple of places leaving big holes in the round tub. Hopefully the holes are not in a structural locations. I’m going to put a new tube down the centre, weld it in place then fill it the outside holes.

I friend of mine Fred has been making some bushes up for me. The Cat. 1 linkage pins I bought didn’t fit correctly in the holes in the frame. Thanks very much Fred, maybe when I get to retirement I’ll be able to buy myself a lathe as well, then I can make stuff! I love these link pins because they are long enough to get the stabiliser bars on and a proper Ferguson nut on the back end.

Fred has also managed to knock out the pins in the bottom holes.

Although not painted I couldn’t resist assembling the top section of the frame with the newly acquired old stock spring. I really can’t wait until I start putting this together.

This next section if for reference more than anything. It shows the remaining metal after the box section has been shot blasted.
