If it has a clutch it was on a combine. The baler units only had a pulley. Also the pulley on the baler units worked of a right angle drive.

The serial number on it indicates a 50 baler (MB50xxxx) but it has a clutch and a straight shaft.

Didn't many of the combines have a double groove crankshaft pulley?
If you are not part of the solution,

Mine doesn't, but it's an early one for a 52R combine.
