RE:Massey Harris General Purpose Four Wheel Drive
Malcolm:

Glad to see you back!! Oh yes Twin Disc is very much still in business making clutch drives but their big money maker is making drop boxes for large boats. Almost every boat out there that has any name at all has a Twin Disc transmition lower end in it. If you would like to see what one of these looks like just go to ebay and search Twin Disc and click on highest prices first. They range from $7,000-$15,000 so they must be good.

Are you close friends to the man that owns the GP with 6 cylinder? Just wondering if he might have a part number for the clutch he got from them as it would be easier to ask for a part number than try to explain to them what a Massey Harris GP is.

John:

I found a couple pictures I snapped of your Industrial front cast drop housing. It is made of one piece verses this one is made in two pieces and bolts together just like a normal GP housing. Yours looks to be alot more beefier but keep in mind yours is the earlier model and this is the new improved 1936 model and somethings may have been cheapened up a bit like this. Don't know what the application was for this tractor but it came from California so I am guessing it was used in the vinyards or orchards. The front wheels are the same width as the rear so it is definatly an Industrial just has the wheels switched to tip toe steel.
