Massy Fergerson 50B??? or not Help!!! Please first time post with pics

Post #1 by allday » Thu Aug 29, 2013 9:17 am

:dizzy: Hi All I have search this great site for hours (and the web) tying to find info on the Massy fergerson 50B I am currently restoring but the only manuals I have downloaded are for the JCB's etc?
Anyone with a manual or any info or help will be golden I will try to post pic but its my first try so bear with me
THX in Advance
If I manage to post pics I will start a thread here which will be on going during the resto which might help others planning to do the same?
Cheers

Don't know if this is any good to you? It's in Swedish but you can get the gist if you use google translator

Alan,if you type ''Massey Ferguson 50B manual'' into ebay,there are a couple of operators and a workshop manual available. The first listing is for a cd workshop manual,one of which I have. TBH, it's not great and is a copy but it was cheap and is still helpful.

Wow! What a great and rapid response Guys! :claphands: :brravo: Thanks Jeremy, and jcb4x I have the e bay cd but its like every post,pic or manual I see never seem to match the one I have? I,m guessing its been modded :insomnia: about over the last 60 years!!? I guessing to this is about 1964 model but I realy don't know? :doh:
Its got the superb Perkins A4-212 Diesel engine :bow: which starts on the smell of key, and I have gleened from many forum "reads" that the dash on this suggests it was the "deluxe" model (whatever that is) (remember not the nine o clock news?)
A Manual in Swedish! Blimey thanks anyone got a Swedish o'pear spare? :arrrrgh:
Still would like to know what the hell it really is ? like when, where, what exact year, as getting some parts might be fun?
:gooodpost:

I tripped over this file. Scanned with avg - clean as of last months virus definitions

Not the greatest looking but enough to pass muster I think. ;) I haven't confirmed how complete this file is. It is in English. 520 pages there abouts. Up to part 13a

...

Ugh ... the preview doesn't show an attached file. I tried the "upload a file" option here to attach a file, but it uploaded, but seems to have wondered off somewhere. There's 32 megs floating around here somewhere.

Chances are it's similar to the cd file you're purchased. Hopefully it will turn up in downloads so you can compare. It definitely uploaded to completion.

Edit I was recalling a different pdf that I was looking at earlier in that day and got the number of pages wrong - now I see you have an earlier model - you're probably not wanting to compare it so urgently.

Second edit As I'm having difficulties here's a temp link until it's uploaded ;)

The file is double zipped to keep unwanted prying eys out of it with the first unzip you will need - cmn

it would appear someone has made some extra brackets for the boom to mount to ,then fitted the dipper ram into the boom fitting holes
giving you less reach and digging depth

i would say its a 50 too
