Massey Manure Spreader Sprocket Part
[Return to Topics]

I need to get a sprocket that drives the smaller chain on my old
Massey manure spreader (probably 40 years old at least. (It
drives the lower fork to spread the manure.)
Anybody have any ideas where to go? I bought it last year. The
chain keeps coming off as the present sprocket seems to be the
wrong axle size.

I have and still use a Massey spreader that was made in the mid to late sixties. No problem getting parts for it. Sometimes if a parts person has just sold a widget for a 250,000 dollar combine, it takes him a while to get down off his throne to look up a part for a 40 year old spreader. If one dealer can't find it, try another. Jim.

If you can't find one, and it's the wrong bore, you should be able to drill it out, and insert a brass bushing.

If you can't put a new bushing in it, Boston Gear Works, Quincy, Ma. 02169 carries all different type gears, sprockets.
