I found some Eagle 30 power unit pics...
This one differs in that it uses the old style exhaust manifold as used on the hopper cooled engines rather than that used on the tractor engines with the verticle exhaust. The exhaust manifold on THIS engine is just like new having no pittting or deterioration.

Rick,
Don't fret about being a no show to the largest ever gathering of Eagles, one where everbody expected to be graced by your presence and wit... you were missed and the subject of scorn and riducile from the crazed fellow Pickett who drives the ambulance and rides with manikins.
The 13-25 Eagle will land here in a couple days and will probably go to Symco this summer as it will likely be the only one there and it's one of the few that I own that look niice. With your help on serial numbers and a little updating, there are only 5 that are here in the states, 2 in Michigan. The rest are north of the border or accross the pond.

Attached are a few pictures of my 30 Eagle portable. It hadn't run since the 70's when I bought it. Like most Eagles it took right off with a little work. Aside from the radiatir and barrel fuel tyank it's very original. This was 2 years ago at a show, We towed the power unit in with a 20-40 Eagle and belted up to a dyno. Life doesn't get any better. My next scheduled Eagle project is an original 20-40 .

The pics were too BIG. I lost my file compression program with a windos reinstall and haven't been able to figure out my new one with family here this week. Craig offered to post them for me. Yes boys, size does matter.

Here's another unusual Eagle and one of my favorites. An early 16-30 H chain steer model, serial number 1178. It retained the chain steering from the earlier F model but has all the other features of the H.
Warren, I'm putting a few pictures out just for you, so you know I'm pimping for your big Eagle show in Symco next year.

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,

Hi Rick the 20-40 is #1603 i take a picture at the weekend from the Typeplate.Hope you have your one running.

Guten Abend Georg - Thanks for the serial # though I have no previous record of that one. There was a 20-40 #1606 in Sheffield, Britain owned by a fellow named Alan Masheder that came I believe came from Western Canada at some point. It has been too cold here to be playing with tractors minus 10C today but maybe later in the week it will be better. I have antifreeze in the tractor and if it is nice outside, it would be good to take her for a run
auf Wiedersehen!
Rick.

Say George - Where was the Toddington Manor Collection located and what happened to it? Sounds rather British to me? Where did they get the Eagle?
Cloudy, cool and looking like snow this afternoon.
Rick.

Yes Toddington Manor is British and a part of the Collection was parked in a shed in the north of London, i believe the Village were called Lavendon.Sorry i am not sure what happend but i believe they sold all the old tractors to spend the money in Steam Engines.Sure David or Lawrence know more about that.
Now we have snow and minus 10.
All the best George

Geroge, we had both types of these engines at the Eagle Rally in Michgan this summer. in the 30 HP size. Jerrod Ruble form Iowa brought his skid type engine that was purchased at the Chet Krause auction. Eagle also made 45 and 60 HP 4 cylinder portable engines in the 1911 -1913 era based on some old literature I have. What a find one of those would be today.

Jeff, about 20 years ago I visited Bob Knoeck in Beaverbend,WI., and I believe he had an EAGLE tractor. I know he passed away a few years back, but do you know where that Eagle went ? [There are none here in Maine.]

I believe it's still in the family. BTW, I was born in a little town in Maine (Springvale) and grew up there. I had to move to the midwest to find Eagles! OK, well maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, would you believe college and work?

I just talked with Howard Fischer. Howard and Bob were partners in their collecting endeavors.
The 12-22 Eagle is still in the family.......and NOT for sale......
