RE:M-H Tanks/Racine
Rick,

I share your enthusiasm for the Massey-Harris tank story so I will carry on despite there not being too much interest.  Frankly I am surprised at this because the
M-H tanks are as much a part of Massey history as the iodine swabs marketed by them up in Canada.  It's all a part of the great Massey history and there to be cherished and researched

Tonight a "worm's eye" view through a tank's tracks and beyond.  Note the self locking nuts on the track bolts and the wire locking the castle nut on the axle.  Also the rather crude "ratchet" on theaxle frame for locking the tightened track rear wheel in position.

The second shows the relatively tight fit for (I presume) the driver.  Must have been hell in there in action........

John
