ANTIQUE TRACTOR PULLERS
|Lauren Langdon pulls the Holt over. (The mag trips on impulse and one hopes that the bar slips from the tapered hole.)||The 1908 60HP Fairbanks starts with air from a receiver tank, but the piston has to be put into position first. 17,000 lbs. 16" bore 20" stroke!
||Here it is up and running, as it was during most of the show.|
|The Avery has a four cylinder engine, two front and two rear, each pair exhausting into two individual stacks. What a sound!|
This 6HP Gade air cooled engine ran perfectly. Its dual exhaust port is much the same as the Fuller Johnson pump jack engine, with the majority of the exhaust coming from the lower side port. The quieter upper exhaust port vents the combustion chamber during the "miss" portion of the running cycle.On the left is a 12 HP Fairbanks Morse type T with heavy "electric" flywheels. It is throttle governed to give smooth regulation for electrical power generation and under load, shoots flame from the pipe.
Other engines on display included a 6HP Associated Mule Team, 1911 IHC Famous jr., Samson 12HP, Mogul 1HP, 4HP Myrick Eclipse, 7 HP Sultan, Monitor Pump Jack, 2 HP Titan, Fairbanks Morse "H" 4HP, 1909 6 HP Fairbanks, 6 HP Air Cooled Motor, 20 HP Stickney, Webster Inverted Gas Engine, Otto Inverted, 4HP Mogul skidded, 20 HP Foos, Fairbanks Morse 12HP Hoisting Engine, Callahan clutched side shaft, Gould Shapely & Muir dual cylinder, and on and on...!!! A great weekend in the shade of the Poplar trees!
