Default Corn Husker?

I picked up this very beat up , I think, corn husker/ sheller and would like to restore it. I am not sure everything is there. The pulley is missing and by looking at some of these corn husker/shellers it looks like they use a 18 - 24 in pulley. I seen picks of a Tiffin corn husker/sheller and it looks close to that model. Any suggestions advise or information on what this is I would really appreciate it. I have a wood worker hobbyist willing to tackle the job but I need to know if it is all there. Some pics to stare at.

interesting that it seems to load from the front rather than the top.

That's a sheller. NOT a husker. IMHO, it ain't worth the work to restore it unless you want, and like to do that kind of work yourself, or it has some kind of sentimental value.

yup thats a sheller. Not sure if anyone ever made a small husker. I have worked on larger Shredder units.

Seems to be missing the crank, gears and flywheel.

It might be a pre-IHC Keystone?
