Question Re: Waterloo Boy Experimental Tractor (Bathtub D)Restoration

I'm looking and looking and looking but can't see what will hold the clutch engaged.......
I'm figuring the groove at the right in the sliding collar is for the shifter but what will keep it engaged?

Craig - I suspect the ball toggles that are pinned to the collar go over center as their pivot point passes under the point where the toggles engage the clutch arm. They would very temporarily be too tight then relax just a bit as the collar pushes the pivot point past center. Just guessing.

Correct Eric! The 2 rollers roll over top each other as the collar is being pushed inward and the springs on the bands(Not Shown SORRY) will compress so give room for them to pass and will remain locked over center until it is pulled back to be disengaged. The bands, adjusters and springs have to be added and then it will make more sense. Thanks for the input ! It takes a bunch of input to get this thing right! Wendell Kelch

I found these two images messing around on the computer tonight, so I thought I would post them as they might have some relevance.

Their the real item but I wonder why the date listed on them is 1930? That's over a decade later than the thing was being planned. F.J.W.

If you look closely, it was filed in 1921, patent office can take a while!

Wendell, I was wondering if this one is on hold to get the new big project done? that one will take up a good portion of the shop compared to this deere... good luck on both of them.

We got the pattern back this week for the belt pulley. It looks great! It is ready to be mounted to a board and head to the foundry. Wendell Kelch

We also got the pattern back for the brake drum. We got the recast front axle back a while back. It has to be remachined to fit the tractor. The owner is coming down tomorrow so we can bounce some ideas around. Am excited to be back on this project again! Wendell Kelch

Hello all,
I was just browsing on youtube and came across this video, I thought you guys may not have come across it as it only had 20 views. Seen as this subject is on the topic of JD and prototypes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-b7SEbV-N4

Thanks,
Carl

I was at don dufner's over the weekend for d parts for two different d's. I brought my iPad with and showed him the pictures and was excited to hear it is getting done. He was there when it was discovered and being excavated. He said at the show all of a sudden more people were coming over to the excavator to see what was going on, as did he. He thought the excavator sold it for a case of whiskey....None the less he is happy to hear that progress is being made.

Carl;
Isn't that a common wide front GP? Dad had a tricycle Gp two row row crop. An uncle had the wide front one. Neither were successful. They both sold about 25-30 years later after sitting in barns all of that time.

Ed, it looks like it sits closer to the ground. The front axle isn't arched for row clearance like the normal ones, Also the rear drop housings appear to have been turned a quarter turn to lower the rear closer to the ground. F.J.W.

the video is from lindeman archives ,they are the ones that started making crawlers from JD tractors [d crawer,gpo crawler,bo crawler]for orchard work. that gp in the film looks like it has a 'd' front axle,but the splindle comes out of the bottom of the axle.also the steering and seat are lower than a gp standard.

Could it have been a BEANER front axle? It was a lot heavier.We are working on patterns for the castings that need to be poured For The Waterloo Boy EXP. We are making headway. Will have more soon.Wendell

I got word today that the some of the cast iron parts have been poured that we drew up and made patterns for! Thay are getting ready to pour the steel parts soon. The machinist will be finishing up one of the clutch engaging plates this week. The belt pulley and the brake pulley is at the foundry now and will be poured within the week. We have several restorations going on at once. Will put more pictures on as soon as the parts get here. Wendell

Here are two cast iron parts for the EXP Waterloo Boy. They are the front shifter support tha the clutch drum. These are the first 2 parts that have went from drawings in our heads to cast iron parts. Next step is to machine them and bolt them onto the Tractor. Wendell

We got some more castings in for the EXP today. We got the belt pulley-clutch casting and the brake drum casting. We already had the clutch drum casting so it is good to see it fits inside the belt pulley.the bely pulley weighs 120#.We got a bunch more parts cast and in shipping now. Wendell
