This is taking too long. Can you just notify me when you figure it out? Thanks!

Boy, That is wrong in my opinion. As far as I know, MF never built their own Diesel engines, they always used Perkins engines..

It IS wrong.  Perkins built all the Massey diesel engines, and some of their old gas engines were Continental.

Don't forget the Massey 98 - 3 cylinder, 2cycle, supercharged GM diesel (3-71 Detroit).

That tractor was actually built by Oliver Corp for Massey to fill a gap in production when the MF factory burnt. It was the same tractor as the Oliver Super 99 with different sheet metal.

Yup, basically the same tractor as the Oliver 99.

This has degraded from a highly interesting question on diesel engine manufacturers to a highly knowledgeable (but correct) display of Massey lore... :dancingbanana:

 

  Now, can we get on to beating up the silly know nothing pocket protector clown that wrote up that obviously wrong Nook game to impress his vegetarian girlfriend?  Remember, Nook is also related to the "Internet" and Al Gore was wrong a couple of times on there too. :wave:  :D
