Iím looking to save this 1960 Massey Ferguson 204 just curious what to look for as I get going on it to my knowledge it hasnít ran in 5 years or so but worked when parked Iíve checked oils is tractor no moisture in anything so far and the engine does not have signs of cracked block Iím currently cleaning carburetor and repair as necessary. How do you get old varnish fuel out of the tank?

That certainly looks worth rescuing Bob . These tractors were very popular with contractors here in Australia . They were often fitted with a backhoe as well as a loader . Not sure about the US but here they were called the Work Bull .

Thanks Charles. I hope to fire it up in the spring gives me time to learn more about it and get some parts ready itís called the work bull in US as well. I wish it had a back hoe mainly for the child in me but the loader will be the bread and butter if I get it back to life. It currently doesnít have a bucket anyone know if any place makes a skid steer quick plate that would fit or I may have to have one fabricated I can weld but given the weight I will probably have someone else make it.

If you are just trying to establish viability, a simple way would be to hang what I call an umbilical tank on the side of the tractor somewhere just to get clean fuel to the carb without having to go through all the work of cleaning out the tank. I used one from an old snowblower.

Awesome I will look into that I havenít got the tank off yet but when I do I will try to clean it as best I can the filter sounds like a good insurance plan though.

I have a '56 Farmall 450, the fuel looked orange from rust, crud. First we pulled the tank and drained it, then pressure washed it with grease remover, flushed it well. It still had a little trash in the tank, I bought the small filter they sell here on YT that goes in the top of the sediment bowl, sticks into the fuel tank. It makes it so the bottom inch or so of fuel never makes it to the fuel line. It has been on almost 3 years, works like a champ, best money I spent on it.
