RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Buck, Sure enjoy your posts and pictures! Keep Um Cumming! Do you have any Wallis Tractors in your area? John, here is my latest contribution to the cast iron thread. This is about as close to owning a Bain wagon as I will ever get, I think it is off the hitch? Joe

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Hi Joe, Regarding the Wallis tractors, I have 3 20/30 certified tractors of which I should be able to restore 2 completely. I have seen a smaller (possibly J or 12-20), unsure, however few and far between. Regards Buck

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Good to see you back on the website Joe,

Yes that's a Bain  wagon "reach plate" where the pin goes through to hold the rear axle unit to the centre pole, we see a few Bain's but very few M-H ones, hope someone can show us a Massey Harris on here from their collections.

Not cast iron but here is my contribution for today, a nice display of brass memorabilia recently back from our "Master Wallis and M-H Engineer in the West", he has put a few hours into these rebuilds for future projects.

Malcolm.

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Hi Malcolm and Joe,

Here is a reach plate that is on my MH wagon.  Unfortunately, it not very descript as to advertising Massey.  The part number is BW14.  I assume it followed the Bain Wagon numbers.

The second and third pictures are much more interesting.  I purchased this reach plate off of eBay.  It was probably one of my larger eBay faux pas!!  The first picture is how it appeared on eBay; the third picture is what it looked liked when it arrived.  I would guess the seller was playing into the soft heart of a Massey collector!!  DUH!!!

GTE

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

This is a pitman ( driving rod ) off a M-H 33 Mower. I bought it to fit my 34 Mower which it won't do but that doesn't matter as I think it is such a nice thing to have. I will hang it up in the barn. Alan

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Malcolm, It's not from my collection unfortunately but I saw this one at the IPM at Chute-a-Blondeau Ontario in 2011. A nice waggon but I expect a lot of you will have seen similar ones. Alan

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Thank you for the wagon photographs Alan, I have yet to see a wagon reach plate with M-H on it, my three M-H wagons have the plain ones like Gary posted. strange when Bain were so proud to cast their name into the plate.

Sorry to hear your pitman is not going to fit your 734 mower, but as you say it will display well in your growing memorabilia collection.

Earlier you mentioned the power units on the Sunshine stripper headers we have seen on our travels, well I am so sorry to tell you unfortunately they were built around the "Fordson" tractor, it is hard to say that word on here Alan, especially as you know what my dad's favourite saying was for those old tractors!!!!!
Anyway despite all that the self propelled Sunshine headers were certainly ahead of their time and I bet an experience to start, operate and maintain.

Malcolm.

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Here is a piece of very popular M-H cast iron here in England which I am sure Alan will recognise, No 26 plough rear landside heel part number PE61, this one was found in my dad's junk pile under his workbench back in the early 1970's and it's been hanging around ever since.

Malcolm.

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Malcolm, I hadn't realized that they built the Sunshine stripper header around Standard Fordsons. I suppose they wanted a good, reliable, easy to start!!!!!!!!!! power unit. I have started mine twice in the last two weeks and apart from a bad back, sore hands and a bright starting handle "April" started well!! Alan

RE:Cast Iron M-H Memorabilia

Hi Alan, I just picked this up yesterday. I travelled about 300 miles and picked up this nice example of the cast pump and bracket for a Sunshine milking machine complete with vacuum gauge. I also picked up a Massey Harris push bike, with HARRIS styled into the main pedal cog. I have several with MASSEY in the pedal cog, but this is the first with HARRIS. I think I can now safely say they were made by MASSEY HARRIS. If you are interested, I will send some pics. Buck
