A few questions to get started:
1: Did Goodison ever offer a canopy for their engines? If so, what does it look like? Our has a canopy but it is not original and I would like to replace it.
2: The clutch has no wear surface on the shoes. Looks like cast on cast. Any thoughts?
3: What are the proper paint colors. I have seen pics online with a red engine and red wheels with green cylinder covers and tanks. I have also seen pictures with green engine.
1. Attached is a pic of what I believe to be a Goodison engine. I have another post card with two pics which show a locomotive-type cab. I am fairly sure that engine is also a Goodison but not 100 percent. Parts books do not mention canopies.
2. Catalogue cuts seem to show the clutch shoe without a lining, but I really do not know, other than to accept what Mr. Michel said above.
3. Nothing clear on paint scheme.

I think i have attached some Goodison pictures scanned from a sale book. Looks like dated 1915. Clutch is a steel shoe. The one we had worked just fine.

That's interesting they ignored convention and had the feed water inlet right onto a hot firebox sheet. Any problems with corrosion around there or broken stays?

Here is a great model display that we purchased many years ago.... I would be interested in selling it AND a gorgeous threshing machine that is just as nice. I'll get pix shortly.

Attached is a couple of pics from the warehouse of our 1910 Goodison engine. It is in fair condition, however a lot of the original pin stripping and paint combinations are still visible. Red wheels with yellow stripes, green engine, controls, gearing, steering and differential.

Brian,
Is that an original Prairie engine, or one that Mr. Reynolds traded for from down here?

It was originally an Ontario engine, once owned by William Johnson, Burford, and sold to Gordon Smith of Orillia. Stan R. bought it, along with a 1905 MacDonald and a 1885 Haggart Bros portable and had Sherwood Hume deliver them on Dec 16, 1965 to the museum in Wetaskiwin. Sherwood hauled back a 76 Sawyer Massey and a mag for a 11-22 Sawyer Massey tractor along with several other pieces.

The warehouse is in Edmonton, and depending on traffic, about a hours drive from the main Museum site.

As Randy had mentioned earlier in the topic, there are no stamping's I could find anywhere on the back head, unless they are under the quadrant shelf. If you look through the spokes of the flywheel, there are only 1 row of rivets on the dome.

Since you mentioned the Sawyer being hauled back, here is a picture on Sherwoods float heading back to Ontario.

Thanks so much for the great catalog cuts. They are very helpful!

It is corn planting time here in PA and I am crazy busy... so sorry for the late reply.

I guess the are no pics in the catalog of canopies?

Thanks again.

Casertractor,

Concerning the Goodison Catalog picture you posted on 5-31-17: Do you have any idea what year that catalog picture is from? I am told my engine is a 1923.

Also anyone know if Goodison offered larger water tanks then just the one single tank on the back? Any saddle tanks or larger rear mounted tanks? If not did John Goodison build a water wagon and if so what did it look like?

Hello Baker Gone Good... my Uncle was the last Canadian owner of that engine before it was sold to the States. Before that, it was owned for many decades by a gentleman named Charlie Robinson. Here is a YouTube link when my cousin had the engine on the prony brake.

https://youtu.be/D7NxLv049N0

Enjoy your new purchase... it’s a great engine!

Thanks so much for reaching out. Any history you may know on the engine is helpful. I am not into steam just because I enjoy steam but also because I enjoy the historic aspects of the steam era. I would love to know where the engine was originally sold and what it did to earn its keep.

Yes, I am enjoying running it! It seems to be a good sound engine. Haven't run it much yet. Just ran it around the house and steamed the garden.

I was always lead to believe it worked like this, that engine #2302 would be the 2nd engine made in 1923
