RE:Massey Harris General Purpose Four Wheel Drive
Sorry it took me so long to reply. Yes, I have come across these style steering knuckles before. I believe I've seen at least 6-8 tractors with this set up on, All the tractors were from California at some point in their past. I may be way off but i believe it is very possible that the Kay Brunner Steel company made these as they made alot of wheels for GPs and others. This style you have would be a great improvement over the original MH set up with the piece of tin bent over the ball. Yours set further forward and would give much advantage with the extra leverage turning the front wheels. 
Your Serial number plate still has me scratching my head as I believe someone replaced it at some point earlier in it's life as your tractor should have the bottom cut off the oval serial plate.
