G.W. In this spec sheet, is the first model a 16, or an 18? Do you have the specs for the 18 and smaller models? I always thought the 14 would be a nice engine to travel with! A friend of mine just bought what he believes to be an 18, but it's hard to tell from the pictures.

There was an article in Antique Power magazine on the big Waterloo gas tractors a few years back.There are records of one being sold at Roseville, Ontario. That was a big tractor for an Ontario thresherman.

That story was in the September/October 2006 issue of Antique Power. Also, if you look in 1911 of the Winnipeg Competitions book, there is a picture of a 28 horse Abell engine with a Waterloo tractor sitting in the background.

Hey everybody!

I am happy to share news of my latest acquisition!

its a 14HP Waterloo Portable Engine, Serial #209.

I'm guessing the year it was built to be 1897 - 1898. It has the original jacket, original cast tool box and also has no dome!

This engine was owned by the Fiebig Family of Dacre Ontario for over 80 years and ran a shingle mill. I purchased it from its most recent in owner in Parry Sound Ontario. It has sat in a barn for the last ten years.

I hope that I might be able to salvage the original boiler. But this is a project that will have to wait until the 25HP engine is up and running.

In other news my 25 is now TSSA certified once again! I will be making a post highlighting some of the boiler repairs we had to do, in the near future.
