What about the earlier big girls, the 4 cylinder 40-60 an such! Now whose keeping that one secret? There has to be one in Minnesota or the Dakotas?

Rick/Kevin- Ive been told about a basket case model D, serial number 275 though I don't have a picture of it and am sworn not to say anymore about it. There is a rumor about a second model out there now also. These things have a way of turning up as the values continue to climb.

@lawrence
I try my best to keep the tractor for myself.The tractor is on my yard until it runs and i am still waiting for the magneto but some minor parts are missing
(bonnet for the crankshaft and for the gears.Heard the eagle from Micheal Kendall running in Onslow park and i like the sound so much!Unbelieveable.
Regards George

There seem to be a surprising number of surviving Eagles considering how few were made. Will likely have my 20-40 running tomorrow
All the best,
Rick.
Rick: "Running tomorrow" , does that mean that Christmas has come early to the Mannen household? I can think of only one reason you would have your Eagle running at such a blustery time of the year. That Eagle is a Good, Solid, Machine .

After I did the Eagle book, I came across some scetchy info that they made some of the lighter models with a four cylinder in line motor Anyone hear anything about this? I am doing some redecorating in the house and have a lot of those notes packed away right now - but I will do some digging. An 8-16 would be a sweetheart to find and listen to. Even better if it were in Lynden, Ontario, Canuckland
Robert - never got my Eagle going the other day after all. It was just too damn cold in the shed and with howling winds, I was leary about opening the big doors. She is loaded up with antifreeze and ready to go - will it get colder than -55 this winter?
Rick.

Lightbulb Re: Eagle Tractors

This eagle finally landed in the shop. dads only had it for 40 years Maybe it will be running by spring. that rads not right but dad wants to adapt in on there needs one crank bearing done, and the carb put on. and lots of cleaning and loosening up. so i guess we'll see how it goes this winter. Rick proably knows the details on it i forget the serial # alreay. 13-25hp H

Colin - Your Eagle should be serial #1636 Beyond that, I don't know much more except there were a fair # of 13-25s in that serial # range in your area. Waterloo Manuf must have shipped a few flat car loads into Regina? I wonder if your's came out of Sakatchewan as there were several more around within a few #s? 'Bout time you guys got that baby in the shop

Colin - Your's would be about a 1927. I know of about 15, 13-25s still existing. Can't recall any more in Manitoba but there used to be one at Rocanville and also Midale. I think the last one in Ontario just flew the coop about a week ago! I used to have a 13-25 but traded it off several years ago, as I recall to be able to buy an 11-22 Sawyer-Massey! Not sure if that 13-25 is still in Ontario and may now be in Holland or Ireland. Funny so many of the smaller Eagles wound up in your area as you might have thought they were too small for threshing, etc., on the Prairies? Then again, there were lots of 10-20 & 11-22 Sawyers and other smaller tractors too.
Rick.

Warren - Thanks for the invite but I am not sure how that will work out. I will have to let you know later. Not much of a traveller any more and seem to be happy just hanging around home here! Jeff is probably still p...ed off with me for not making his event in Michigan in the summer and there is another well known Eagle guy at Pickett who's name rhymes with Homer who wanted me to come to his show this year also! Is Mr. Timmel still on the go at Symco? - great guy!
Rick.

Hello @ all
I wríte something about the 20-40H Eagle and the owner is maybe willing for a swap against my Restored Farmall Regular and my 1924 Hart Parr30C maybe the last 30C with #22287
What is your opinion to this.
The Hart is now on Rubber Lugs and finished

Is this the only 30C in Europe? I have been told that there is only one C in Europe but thought it was in Belgium.

Go for the swap

Thanks Craig. I had forgot about him buying that from you. He called here all smiles and good cheer after he got that one home. And to think, you gave up some good Eagle stuff just to get squirted with oil every time you run that big Oil Pull I guess I shouldn't be so mouthy - I have owned 4 Oil Pukes over the years and still have the spots on my shirts to prove it My Eagle was apart and not running for a couple of years until this summer. Every time I walked by I would crank the MK and squirt a bit of oil in the cylinders. When I started her for the first time again this year, she fired on the first turn and gleefully puked 2 years worth of oil out the stack, over me, the shop and my GS&M Beaver tractor; not to mention all over the nice, new paint on the Eagle. Me said some bad woids
Rick.

I know from 5 Hart Parr 30 and from two 30C including mine,but the C is very simliar to the 16-30.I ask this morning with the owner from the eagle an he wants to keep them but he wants to have a look at my tractors again and wants to speak about.Maybe a bit hope
And if not it needs time and enough money and i buy another if i can.
