Title: Massey Ferguson 506 PTO Header
Post by: Noel McLean on 07 July, 2020, 12:02:19 pm
Hi everyone. I?m new to the world of restoration of old farming gear and have decided to get stuck into a MF 506 PTO harvester. I am digging and finding some issues such as missing rasp bars and rotten timber. Does anyone know what type of timber was used by MF in Australia in the 50?s?

Noel,
Probably that Irish timber O'regon pine. I remember my father doing repairs on his Oliver harvester and he used Oregon Pine or good old red gum for most repairs depending on the situation. Cockie
