Boy does this get my mind working. Imagine something like a 20hp Onan instead. Or even a small diesel. Possibilities are endless. Really neat setup.

Too light in the front.  Looks like it'd rare up and over. 

 

It was interesting

After reading comments, while pulling a 2 12 plow, he adds bricks on the front for weight.

I wouldn't think that would have enough torque to get that all going. But I guess it does

I have a couple concerns. I know it all works but for how long. I think it's under powered & how long would that clutch hold out. When I seen the clutch with the chain drive part I thought wow it engaged! All that said I really enjoyed all the old iron working & the efforts of the owner...definitely a work horse.

To me  it doesn't really matter if the engine only lasts for, say 500 hours. It can be replaced for $400. You can,t buy a few minor parts for the original engine for that price. The clutch costs about $50. I have to admire the ingenuity of those fellows to get a usable full sized  tractor for less money than we spend to get our garden tractors running. It's amazing the work they get out of that tractor.

If they had mounted the engine farther forward and used a drive shaft it would have looked more like a pulling tractor.

Kind of neat but I don't see the point. 

A Running - operating Massey 33 would sell for $300-$600 at auction around here. 

That engine would cost more than that. 

 

P.S.  With a stock engine you could also run a quiet muffler and wouldn't have to listen to that thing scream. 

:(
