RE:Massey Harris #2
I think this may be one for both Tom and Joe to explore, as Joe recently worked out the un-identified part in the wrench thread from the part number.

Well over a year ago Gary Biewer advertised a M-H fuel filler funnel on the internet adverts, the fitting it was screwed into looked identical to the fitings on both my No 2 and No 3 tractors, so very quickly bought it. Then it sat in Gary's office for months and maybe Tom has seen it there? Last August whilst passing through Barnesville I picked it up and just got round to looking at it in more depth now it is back in England.

I know other early tractor manufacturers like I-H offered fuel funnels and can understand that Massey Harris were following a manufacturers trend, I have checked the No 2 parts list and do not see a fuel funnel listed and the part numbers for the tractor are pre fixed AA,
On this funnel the base is part No GA 262 and the five inch diameter lid is number GA171, inside the lid there is a lovely anti splash device and the fitting which would be soldered to tank is definatley the same as the tractors, so wondering what it is off,.
