Restoration Questions

I'm in the process of restoring my Massey Ferguson TO-35. I'd like to add OEM accessories that were available for the tractor when it was new. Some I can find that are original and some appear only available as after-market items. I'd like to add headlights and it appears that the original ones also had a little wing escutcheon but I'm not sure of the exact location of the factory lights and it appears that the only lights available are after-market. I need to replace the hood latches and I can't find any, I'd like to replace the utility light and the rear light but I can only find parts of the original configuration and only as after-market items. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Chuck

Re: Restoration Questions

the headlight wings are available from Steiner Tractor parts who advertises on this sight. I have a TO-35 with lights but it is on loan to my FIL who doesn't do pictures. I'm posting a couple of pic below of it that my help a bit with placement.
If you look at a Ford 2n or an early 8n the parts and placement are the same as are all the Massey models from the same years, I think all these are the same set up - TE20, TO20, TO30, TO35, MF 20, 30, 35, 40, 50, 65, 85, 88, 95, 97, 98

Re: Restoration Questions

As far as I know, the bulbs with the checker board design are harder to find than the light bucket. I need a set of bulbs for my Farmall "A". PJ

Thanks but I wish I knew! I see that there are lights as an option but I have no idea what is appropriate for the year and model. I guess I need a bit of hand-holding on this since its my first attempt at restoration.

Thanks for the pix, they help a lot! I appreciate the info, now I need to figure out the size of the hole and I am sure that it must have a grommet to save the wires from abrasion. BTW great looking tractors

Re: Restoration Questions

The wires are protected, the mounting stud is hollow and the wires come through it

Re: Restoration Questions

also, thanks for the complement on the tractors, the 135 is the one I grew up on. I tracked it down and bought it back from the man who my father sold it to.
The TO-35 belonged to my wife's grandfather, never been out of the family. I also have her great-grandfathers Allis WC that had never been out of the familr either. Just trying to save some family history!
