I have often heard of the ported or axillary exhaust on the early oilpulls. Just what was the purpose of this arrangement and how did it work.

I see in Post # 64 the early 15-30 F owned by Carl Mehmke has the bigger radiator. How many of the early F's with the bigger radiator survive, when was the radiator changed to the smaller one and does any one have any idea what the serial number is of the earliest surviving F?

Ya its an X, forgot to get a pic they are a lot smaller than the 25/45R. its a tractor that was still owned by the 90+ yr old man like you woulda found 30 years ago in an old barn.

the x that Colin is talking about my Dad and an old freind of ours + my self found in the early 80's we got it up andrunning for the gentalmen but he did not want to part with it at that time. And it was as barn fresh as they come, we whish that we had a camera at that time. But it is in good hands now so that is all that matters.

Don't know how "Big" it would be considered, but is a Heavyweight, and figured ya'll would like to see this pic of a 16-30 (I think??? Anyone tell me for sure????) OilPull out plowing with an automatic plow guide way back in the day. Just can't imagine how monotonous it would be....nor how deaf you'd be by the end of the day! Still would be fun for awhile.....I'd be more than glad to take 'er for a round or two!

Neat pic Mike. That's a 20-40. You can tell by the dual exhaust pipes going into the back of the stack versus one pipe into the side of the stack on the 16-30. I'd be into a few laps too, but all day might drag on a bit. At least with an outfit like that, you've got someone along to b/s with.

Nice picture Mike.
Looks like this is the second day plowing on that field, notice the shine like of the ground in the distance. Just like the gumbo ground here, pretty shinny the first day, shows the very round you stopped the day before. Great picture to study like all the fields fenced, clothing style of the men, ect.

Also the plow is a cam driven self-lift Rumely plow just like the one I bought at the Earl Marhanka sale many years ago.

Yes those days were harder on the body than machines today. However the worrys we have now while running the Versatile and the 10-18 plow are bigger problems on us mentally today. I think life in America was better back then.

This is a wonderful thread. Thanks to all. How long until the pictures are removed?
Here are some pictures of old No. 766 working in 1920. I bought the close up on Ebay and noticed it came from Skoklund, same name as I bought mine from in 1969. The drawbar has the same twist as mine. Matter of fact, it is now mine! I contacted the seller and he sent me the rest. He said, "I'm glad to know who bought my great uncle's Oilpull."
Collins construction of Lacota ND bought it in 1912 and sold it to Albert Skoglund of Argyle, Warren MN area where Old Mill State Park is in 1919. They farmed 2 sections with it through WW II. It ran the flour mill too. The plough and the ex rims were scrapped. It has "Jan 4 1912" painted on the front of the crankcase. It was overhauled in the 1930s and now it is apart for rings, pin bushings and ex valve guide work. Bearings are fine.
Does anyone have any information on Collins Construction? More following.

The others. Color is Skoglund on it running without canopy or stack ready to drive on trailer. Other is the IHC Titan it replaced. The IHC coil was in the toolbox. It is much better than the "wood" coils being sold today. I must get it back together for the 100th birthday celebration.

Amazing that you have the old pictures of your own Rumely! Thanks for posting them here. Do you know why they turned the wheels around, was it that way when you got it?

Best regards
Marcel
