Hey guys I have a bit of a problem I have a massey 8 that I absolutely adore no engine but the tranny is good brake is iffy I already have wheels and tires picked out for it (gonna wide ag the front and dual ag the back) the only thing I am worried about is the tranny it is good for 8hp out of a tiny tehcumseh but I dont know if it could handle say a 10hp diesel or something. Id like to go diesel just for the fact that it has a heavy duty frame itd go really well with the style and its still a light tractor so I think itd sip fuel. Let me know what you guys think I could use the advice!  Very Happy

Are you going to use the pulley that is sitting in the engine bay.  If should be able to handle about anything as long as you don't throw really high pulley swaps at it.

Are there any markings on the tranny, or anything to give us an idea what model it is?

I've got a 66 massey 175, (60hp farm/field diesel), and that uses the same style paint and sheetmetal. It could be a mini to my big tractor.

That would be considered a 3-speed.
