I think this is more like a MF135, Look around the bell housing and see if you can find any stamped numbers. The numbers in your picture are casting numbers

:wave: atlantis504 Welcome to GTTalk! It's great to have you here. Although it's not exactly a garden tractor, and not to brag on my friend, but I believe that MH81 will be able to give you the information that you seek! Hope that you enjoy the forum.

I have been mistaken, I believe this to be an Industrial 20. I will keep looking for I.D. number info for you.

I think Brian's on the right track here. It was built post MF35/TO35 era. The serial # would be where Brian showed you & that's the only place... on a tin tag. If it's missing, verification of the exact model can be challenging. The engine size may help. I believe that's a Continental, so it would be LHS of the block, just above the oil pan... it will start with "Z". If it's a perkins, I don't know where they put it.

I'm gonna knock the dust off a couple of books & see what I can find out also.

EDIT: What does that extra lever do? Is that a shuttle tranny add-on, an early multi power, or a clutch lock? (Some of the Massey Harris Industrials had a clutch locker for extreme pulling)

It's Military, that's why I can't find it in my books.

Here's one just like it, (except for the extra mystery lever) being sold by the Navy.

I believe it's a Perkins engine. Look for the engine # on the right side of block at top towards front. I've never seen any Massey with that extra shift lever.

That's like my MF20 Industrial, same tractor as the 135. The shift lever on the right is for Hi/Lo Range. Mine has a foot throttle rather than the hand throttle. It's a 3 cylinder Perkins, great little engine.

I bet it has shuttle shift on the steering column, Thats what I would guess it is.
