 Identify Antique Massey Ferguson Sickle Bar Mower


Help Identify this Massey Ferguson Sickle Bar Mower? (Please see photo) I need to identify what parts are missing and find a source for them. I believe there are at least 3 missing parts, including the rod that holds the bar up when not in use, and the top hitch of the 3 point hitch. We could not find a model number anywhere on it. Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks!

 Identify Antique Massey Ferguson Sickle Bar Mower

I can help you.
this is not a Massey Ferguson mower, it is an International Harvester. I think the modfel No. is a 15A, not sure, but do know my Father bought one new in about 1954. I still have the main frame and rear caster wheel with PTO generator mounted on it for standby power. It never was a three point hitch as built. Where the hitch pins are on yours there was a cross mounted bar that had holes to match the holes in an H or M Farmall tractor drawbar. The parts yopu are missing, three pint top mast, never was built, the sickle bar hold up rod you might find at a junk yard, good luck. Frank.

Thank you Frank. There are other suspected missing parts - I'll get some close ups to post and see if you can recognize what's missing. For the other connection (that you say was for a Farmall), my brother-in-law has a steel fab business - they should be able to create a top connector for the 3-point. Someone else thought model # might be 25v. I wasn't able to verify that, but there is a manual available for it. What do you think of that? I'll do some searching on 15A and see what I can find. Again, thanks!

Yes, I was wrong. the correct model No. is a 27V. They aso built opther versions of the same mower that were a trailer type that would have had a differnt model number.
I do have a quite extensive "Stash" of old mostly IHC owner's manuals but I'd have to dig a while to see if I have one. An IHC collector swap meet would be a good place to start if I don't have it.
There really is no need for a three point top link, they were meant to ride on the caster wheel whether in use or going down the road.
It is remotely possible that a Case/IH dealership might have some of the more popular parts like sickle sections, guards, pitman sticks, and maybe the drive belt, they built a zillion of them back in their day.

Here are a bunch of new photos - I'm hoping they can help show what the missing parts might be...
(see the link for photos)

You don't really need a lot but from what I can see these things will make you a mower.
1. A shielded PTO shaft
2.In photo #2 the loose ring you see on the outer end of the lift shaft had a transport rod for the sickle bar that is missing. The little clip you see behind the lift system on the main channel iron frame was for storage of the transport rod while mowing. One could be easily made.
3. In photo # 17 you need the guide rod to turn the cut hay away from the inner end of the sickle. It fastened to the bolt you see in the center of the shoe casting, came forward under the shoe then up thru the open hole in the front of the shoe, then toward the rear and the direction of the sickle. You could make one of those.
4. In photo #4 someone cut the siclke bar lift lever off with a torch, you will need to replace that or as most did home build bracket system for a hydraulic cylinder to lift the bar.
5. Likely the former owner was using the three point lift arms to lift the whole mower frame to get thwe bar to lift. That isn't the way it was meant to work at all, the frame should be held at the same level all the time whether mowing or during transport.
5. The drive belt looks new but I can't tell the condition of the pitman stick, it may be rotted from sitting around but someone would likely have new ones, or I have made them with a straight grained piece of oak.
