Massey 515 Table
The quick attach 12 ft table would of been standard for the 515 although I have seen them with 14 ft tables in the past.
As you can imagine with years of inactivity everything would need a gentle coaxing back to life, a thorough clean off to start with then a check around for any play around bearings, a renewal of oil in the wobble box , the various belts look in good order and thankfully they were slackened off which helps in their longevity and being enclosed within guards it keeps them safe.
the reel has all of its tines and Auger fingers plus the Auger tube is without damage or dents which shows it's not had harsh treatment in a stoney area!
several of the knife sections will need replacing but the knife fingers are all present and in good order.
one odd thing is that all of the table skids on table bottom had been removed? Which is not ideal as they protect the table bottom from wear plus connected to the Automatic table height control on combine which is now inoperable and means the operator has to use eye co ordination.
After a thorough clean and grease up of all the nipples and some chain lubrication oil it's nearly time to connect her up to the combine which hasn't happened for many years.
Part 3 we see the 515 take to the harvest field once again!
where is this recycling place? I have a 760 and am looking for a sheet metal grain tank cover like the one on the 860,865. However, I am from Germany, which certainly makes things more difficult

Hi Colin! I'm make modifications for the Farming Simulator game, and would love to make one of these as a project. Is there any chance you could get me some up measurements of your 24? Thanks.
Hello, I have read with interest the story of your MF515.
I have an MF 187 which is in running order and has cut a few acres this year. I am near Andover and have great interest in old combines.
