I bought this combine in 2015 but never had time or possibilities to try it. This combine had sat two years outside right before I bought it but was shredded otherwise.
This is a super92 imported in France in the early 60s, to complete the model lineup with the French built 892, that looked more like a Super27. Very few were imported because the 500 (predecessor to the 510 build LATER in Canada), was already available in great Britain, and some were imported also.

That perkins 6-305 is the best starting and sounding engine of that size I have ever seen.

During August of last year, I took a day off to get it going. She fired right up in half a revolution of the engine.
The straw walker crank was stuck from setting, but a good pipe wrench did fix that. A good greasing and she was good to go. I found pretty soon that the unloader needed fixing at the coupler. After some welding and metal straightening, she was doing better. I Jerry rigged a grain flow reducer in the bin so not to overload it.

Last year harvest at my dad's farm was very good and the barley yielded 9.5t/ha or 173Bu/ac, so this was quite a load on the elevator and I could not push her too much. The sample quality and straw walker losses were low, but I was missing a bigger holes sieve screen to allow more crop to go trough. The sieve is not adjustable, and this is slightly painful to adjust. With a sieve with different front and rear adjustment like the one on my 860, that super 92 will fly.

In damp straw (the straw is quite tall, cutter bar is 12 feets), I had issues with cylinder loosing speed and plugging. That is because of the unique variable speed cylinder system. Since then, a friend working at the Massey plant in France has given me the information and technical manuals so I can retighten the belt.

I hope to have it all restored in the next few years and will do some mods to make her work better with urgent condition.

The other combine my dad bought last year because he cannot maneuver the 860 anymore. It is a claas Consul. Works very well but I prefer to be in the super 92. On the consul, you eate at least three time more dust.

That brings back a lot of memories, I first operated a 92 in the field before I was 12 years old, we had a Super 92, as well.

They had pickups on them, we never straighted with them, as a matter of fact I still have a little-used reel from the 92 hanging up in a shed that was taken off when it came on the farm in the 60's and had a pickup installed. They were IH drum-type pickups.

I still have the MF Super 92 combine my Dad had when I grew up. He sold it in 1980 and I found it in 2011. I bought it for a collector and have it back in the shed after it sat out 7 years. I remember the sound and power of the Chrysler 6 engine, it was impressive. Every one in the neighbor hood was impressed with its performance. It was used to do some custom oat cutting in our neighbor hood. You mentioned the cylinder belt slipping. That is common with that flat belt and my Dad always carried a can of Pulmore belt dressing to squirt on that belt as needed. I still have some of that belt dressing If you need some. Also belt dressing is handy to squirt on vehicle tires when stuck in snow, it will get u out most times.

My MF Super 92 combine has been parked in the shed for several years with the 14 ft head head up. I put a angle iron on life cylinder shaft so head could not drop just in case. Well the interesting thing is that in the Fall as oil cools and contracts cylinder will drop some and rest on angle iron and in Spring as oil warms and expands cylinder will extend and lift head off lift cylinder angle iron stop. It does this ever Fall and Spring. I have bought several New Skid loaders over the years and the booms will drop when parked. Why can't they build things as well as they used too???? This Combine is close to 60 years old and cylinder holds and has not leaked at all.

I have seen a lot of your post and pictures and always like them. I bought this super 92 after studying all your recovery pictures of super 27, 21, etc...
I should have went see your collection while I worked at the Hesston Massey plant...

They are two super 92 diesel for sale in France. You can see the variable speed cylinder drive. They are very rare combine here. It is possible that the perkins was fitted mostly on export combines. After 1956, diesel fuel with red dye was much cheaper for farm use se due to a Taxcu for farm fuel.
That obsoleted gasoline engine, and the crude oil (Lanz) engine altogether.

And I agree super 92 is quite the quality combine. That combine has no welds, all shafts are tights.the cylinder and beater alhave huge oilers... Should last forever. The hydraulics are very simple, but are leaking a bit on mine. Hydraulic brakes still work flawlessly...
