Sneakymedic got me looking for my pictures of a GVIs. How many folks have seen a GVI with a belt pulley?? lol I assume no GVI came from the factory with a belt pulley. I wouldn't have thought anyone by the early 60's would have still been using one.


and here is my diesel GVI:



A local auction house recently sold a GVI fwa and advertised it is as "perhaps the only one in existence". Mine was at the farm 30 miles away from that sale. I really think the auctioneer knew better. ha When I bought this one at an estate auction, the brother-in-law of the deceased fellow told me when the MM dealer came out to the farm to install the fwa axle, that this one was the "...50th or 60th one he had done like that..."...

Back 25 years ago, my dad bought 3 GVIs at a farm sale for $40 apiece and my brother drove them home. It was the only time I ever remember him spending money on something he didn't really need. And then he sold them to another guy a few weeks later. And that was one of the few times I've ever known him to sell anything. All that happened just before I really caught the old iron fever, and I sure wish he had kept them.

Not very familiar with MM's, had 3 RTU's over the years. Question, would you refer to GVI as G-V-I or G6?

All Iíve ever heard it as is G6 (except by an auctioneer or two that called it a GV or GV1 or something dumb like that). Ha

MY L.P. GVI has a belt pulley on it. It was on the tractor when I purchased it. It has a rod that extends back to the operators platform near the brake pedals to engage/disengage. When I purchased the tractor years ago, it was belted to a M.M. threshing machine that was fed from both sides. the right front rim on the GVI had to be reversed (set wide) to allow room for the belt to run without rubbing the tire. that show where the tractor was purchased was at Lennox, So. Dakota. I can't remember what year. as soon as I got the tractor home it was restored and is my tractor ride / show tractor.

Post some pics, Dean! My old fence row project had been neglected a lot years, so it wasnít a great example.

Iíd like to see one in bright color and would like to see the control mechanism, too. Iíll check mine next time Iím out to the farm. As I recall, it looked like the belt pulley on mine had been added later.

This is so surprising to me that belt pulleys were used so much up into the GVI era. I just wouldnít have guessed that to be true. From Brianís point with numbers, sounds like perhaps MM didnít think they were too important from the factory.

Maybe just a lot of folks were retrofitting them from older tractors. The family estate I got mine at could have been grinding feed over the years, but there was no one left to say for sure.

Howard, belt pulley was an option on early GVI but it looks like only a small handful were factory equipped with a pulley. My info on GVI tractors is not complete but looks like 7 diesel and no LP were factory equipped with the belt pulley option.

The auger is 13 inch by 64 feet long the best part is a 1000 bushel load only takes about 3 quarts of fuel and is done in less than 12 minutes

Here's a pic of my GVI running the auger putting wet corn in the holding bin last fall. It has a belt pulley but I salvaged parts off an UB and put it on thinking I'd use it at a threshing show sometime.

My G VI LP Gas has a belt pulley. We run the Sawmill with it at the K & O show. I have an M5 with a flat belt pulley. I'll try to get a picture of when I get home. Our neighbor bought a G 705 LP Gas new with a flat belt pulley. He ran a sawmill and had added a top saw so he could cut larger diameter logs and need the extra power. I caught slabs off this sawmill on many a cold winter day.

Thats really interesting, Roger... It sounds like it was much more common than I would have guessed by that time period.

Back in the 1990s, when I was really crazy about MMs, I heard of one near here that was used to power a sawmill. I never saw the setup, but I assumed it powered the saw by flat belt. Most of the Frick sawmills still running back then used flat belts.

I think it was for sale. I never went to see about it, because couldn't haul it safely with 1/2 ton pickup.

Am I understanding you right that the belt pulley is the same as the set up on a U? Cause I have one one my U which I have a valve problem on and which I grind feed with on a MM hammermill. If I understand you right I could put it on my GVI?

That looks like a great one to save, Sneakymedic! Like my boy said one time when he was little - and we were loading up a neglected old iron orphan - "all it needs is a little shining up!" lol

I believe you are right on that. The so-called low platform 95 was a GBD and the high platform 95 Super was a GVI if I remember right. Neighbours had one of each. unc

mmmmm-mmmmm. Love them big honkin Minnies. We're in wheatland country here in southern Alberta. I can't say I've seen any GVIs with FWA lately, but there are a few Massey 95s, and 97s with FWA around. Even though the FWA tractors were produced in small numbers, the survival rate is pretty high and we do see them on occasion. My GVI is a 1960 with a belt pulley that looks just like yours. I salvaged a pulley assembly from a 1960 MF 95 that will probably end up on my 1961 MF 95. I want to be prepared if this combine fad blows over and we go back to the binder/thresher method.

It's supposed to hit 85 today, a little cooler than yesterday. unc

"... be prepared if this combine fad blows over..." lol That's hilarious!

That reminds me about a shock I got a few years ago, though - was visiting with a very elderly neighbor who was born in a dugout out here on the high plains. He was pushing 100.

We were talking about old tractors and how things had changed - and he said "yeah, I was never so glad as when one of the neighbors finally bought a threshing machine and started making the rounds to the various farms around here to thresh crops...".

That struck me so curious that I asked - "well, what were you doing before that???"

He said "we'd cut the milo heads by hand and throw them in a wagon and haul them with horses to Texhoma (local town 20 miles away) to sell them"!!!

It was so amazing to think he was already working as a kid when the oldest items in my collection were still coming out as new equipment.

FWa was a late option on GV1 for Elwood front axle. I have a service bulletin that show how to ad drop box. Gvi fwa became G704.
