Yesterday I looked at the first Super 92 Massey diesel combine that I have ever seen...Some friends picked it up in the Wellsville,KS area and it will be going to a good home in southern Oklahoma..It has a 14 ft header....If I remember right thats a 305 Perkins diesel engine which has to be pretty rare..I think that it had been used in to the 1990's..

"Back in the day", there were several in the Rolla, ND area not far from me.

One was sold on a sale in the early 80's, I would have loved to own it, but no extra $$$ for such things, I didn't go to the sale or hear what it sold for.

Heck of a place for an engine to live. Seems funny they could make it without burning up.

We took a super 92 dsl in on trade at the dealership in 1968 or 69,, we sold it locally but I have no clue where it is today,, it was a open station one that was used on a custom cutters fleet before we took it on trade

I agree that is a bad place for an engine, but Massey wasn't the only company to do that as Cockshutt had "bottom" engines too. Early IHCs had low engines too except they were off on the side for somewhat easier access.

I cut my teeth on a Massey 82 gas. The engine was underneath on the 82 and I just had to get used to the smell of hot dust. I got pretty good at telling the difference in smell between hot dust and real smoke. Dust would build up on the external oil pump and start burning. That was real smoke but there was nothing else around it to catch fire so nothing exciting happened.

Add Oliver and Case to that list too with low mounted engines. Were Massey placed the engine was an awful place for serviceability. However, it made for a low profile combine and its no coincidence that you find more antique Masseys in sheds around here then any other combine. Its because you can get them into a shed. My round back 55 is almost as tall as our 8820 and I have trouble getting sheds or quonsets that were built to store farm machinery.

I think that very few older massey harris burned up.
There was no straw accumulation in the engine compartment because it had no floor. Yes, serviceability was terrible for daily maintenance, but engine could be easily slide out and redone without crane (just slide it on wooden blocks). On a 55 deere or Gleaner A, you need MORE blocks.
