Jeff,

Last weekend I have received new items. Found some information through the original letter writing from a former 40 year Banting employee. He has explained the serial number on the engine. The first two number indicates the year of manufacture and last two or three number is shop number. I have at least 30 original letters written by Charles Decker of Toledo, Ohio.
I assume the shop number 31 is the 31st built. I do not know it exist?

Note: Coming up soon post many scan letters of Banting company, boiler, castings, etc.

Craig

As you can see the three thumbnail photos on post # 60.
Enclosed a three scanned copies of engine owners history. Note there is a 26/70 hp. MR Flowers has a incorrect hp ratings. It should be manufactured/advertised rating of 24 hp to somewhat 75 hp. I do see some past engineer's testimony in the catalog. They felt it be 26 hp or 30 hp. The current owner in Bulger, Pa has it for six years.

This is a National Threshers Association of Wauseon, Ohio show button. I think The 24 hp Greyhound was featured back in 1971. John Brite and Harold Gay had it there on showground. Some of you folks might remember it.
The engine is now own by Craig Detwiler

The Banting mfg Co. of Toledo, Ohio. You can get the view from the satellite and the street view. The best street viewing of original brick building far right side of Yoder building. Take a peek browse around the former Banting building. Chimney is still standing as you can see on west side. Try zoom in and out. I am sure I can take time without street address for the old Russell, Baker,Keck,Aultman Taylor... etc plant. Also your resident address has a satellite or street view. Most resident were not update with street view. I can probably see your engine park outside! lol
I hear couple folks are fear to be in Toledo. The safest way is surf on internet and your gasoline expenses!

Go to Google map site then type in address 2375 Dorr St Toledo Ohio ( not door use dorr). http://maps.google.com/maps
If it appears with red balloon. Right above message says "Street view" click this. Click arrows on yellow line on road much as walking distances and move around all 360 degree directions. The taller brick buildings is what you would see. When you pass the large white building. Move around to east. Behind the building you can see the arch roof and chimney. You can zoom in and out.



Image factory photo to compare http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/show...p?i=5800&c=113

The archive image of long building were all gone. The arch roof with chimney and taller building are still standing in surround by newer buildings.

There are dozens youtube videos that someone uploaded. I pick out the two at a time.

Blindfolded course race. Byler's Greyhound was off the line The engine should turn left in between red buckets.



An early advertising for Pabst Co. You will see the Greyhound and AD Baker in operation. The front Greyhound before the whistle and the engine connecting rod moments. The movie ad maybe taken in Illinois show in late 60 to 70's?

I will be going through PA and Dad and I wanted to stop and get some info on the Greyhound in Bulger, PA. Is it possible for us to get the phone number of the gentleman who owns it?

Thanks!

Sometime ago I saw this item from eBay. The seller told me it was originally used by Mr Banting. I was surprised to find this and bought it. This is a drafting machine board. the size is 12 by 18 inches. Has original worn thick padded paper. The drafting machine was manufactured by The Wrigraph Drafting Machine Cleveland Ohio. I think it was fairly small and handy for the carry on demo or desk top much likely today's laptop computer. It's a rare historical piece! I checked the patent online. It appeared to be the early 1920. I think it has missing straight or L shape ruler.

I just came across the two videos today from the user of Janetodan youtube video. Someone introduce me their video. At first I Google search " Greyhound steam". Somehow I may missed something if they misspelled "Grayhound". Now I do Google "Grayhound steam". The Greyhound is 1921 18 hp
8 3/4 X 11 owned by John fry family in Oklahoma. It's been in the family since new from Ohio. A sweet heart beat exhaust sound pulling a thresher.

Back in for more research. I have found the two Canadian residents with the Greyhound threshers. The Banting Greyhound jobber dealer in Canada was I. J. Haug & Sons Ltd Regina, Sask. Among two customer comments are Morris J. Heiberg of Lang, Sask and A. Kellington & Johnson of North Portal Sask. Does anyone have a history of Haug dealer?
I heard folk was telling me was a long time jobber dealership.
Enclosed the two scanned archived late 20's customer comment advertising from a original brochure.

Mr. Grey,
I. J. Haug was a name associated with farm machinery in Western Canada for many years.
See the attachment below of Haug and Nellermoe who were agents for Avery tractions, ploughs and seperators for many years. That ad is from 1906.
Haug is mentioned in 1918 as the manager of the Winnipeg branch of the Canadian Avery Co.. I'll see what else I can find.

There is a nice write-up in the December 1918 Canadian Farm Implements on I.J. Haug. At that time, he was appointed Norwegian Vice Consul for the Province of Manitoba!
It never gives his full name; but he started out in the implement business in Sacred Heart, MN and very early on got into the Avery Line. He became a traveller for Avery out of Minneapolis and was appointed branch manager at Fargo, ND in 1900, until 1906.
In 1903, he visited Winnipeg, MB and helped organize Haug Bros. and Nellermoe Co. for selling the Avery Line in Canada. He moved up to Winnipeg to stay in 1906.
In 1913, the company was reorganized as the Canadian Avery Company and a branch opened in Regina, SK.
Obviously, at a later date, the company returned to the Haug name and were agents for other lines such as Greyhound. Will try to find more on that.
There is an L.J. Haug also listed in 1918 when Avery had tractors at the Brandon ploughing competition. Maybe he was a brother? They had tractors there - 5-10, 12-25 and 18-36, along with Grand Detour ploughs.
I. J. Haug and Sons are still shown in business through the 1930s carrying products like hammer mills.

I have done some research at the Elmore Public Library archive collections. I check the archive Bantings such as business, genealogy,newspaper clippings, building photo. I spent 5 hours before closing the day of December 29th. Enclosed four photos where I discovered it.
I have researched partial 1928-1929 information about the Greyhound 18 hp serial number 1724 and Greyhound thresher # 20665 with Chattel Mortgage along with Agriculture Bond & Credit sued a personal request(Clark Smith) in Vandalia, Michigan.
Will return again to make more copies. Stay tune for next post.
