RE:Massey Harris General Purpose Four Wheel Drive
Here is another design flaw that they fixed by drilling more holes and bolting with hardened bolts and locked them with metal tabs.  This is the ring gear that couples the clutch to the flywheel, on the early tractors this ring gear was held on by six tapered headded screws they often came loose and had catistrophic problems.

The first pictire is an example of what they look like when the screws come loose.

The next is a pictuer of what it should look like not broken up and the 3rd is a picture of the newer gear with Twelve bolts with locks.
