RE:Massey Harris General Purpose Four Wheel Drive
Thanks for that Joe - it all makes sense.

As for the "attachment points for a plough or bracket" - call them what you will - on mine these are part of the main wheel gear housing casting and not bolt ons.  It begs the question what exactly is this tractor you have found?  It undoubtedly has the very narrow axle arrangement of an industrial but what has happened to its "industrial" cast wheels?  I can't get in the sheds at the moment to take a photo because of massive frozen snow drifts against the doors.

By chance I am doing an article on the GPs for one of our magazines at the moment and was pulling all facts and figures together.  I was reminded that the industrials had considerably higher gearing so I think you need to get that tractor, get it running and give it a spin.  Top speed for an industrial is supposed to be 9 mph.  Never given mine a burn out!!
