    Can anyone tell me what winch is on this machine? It has no tags on it. And it's not a carco. That 20210726_112728.jpg 20221109_160716.jpg 20210726_112728.jpg 20221109_160716.jpg 20221109_160704.jpg name is usually built right into the cast. This winch has nothing on it. Thank you

    G..G..G..Granville.........!! Fetch your cloth.
    Hyster winches were the weapon of choice back then. System lists Model 55 or Model 56 winches for a 10K tractor.
    Can you see anything on the ID plate just above and to the left of the winch.?
