Heres a picture of a 18hp Advance wheel that i bored out. It was an earlier engine than the 16hp so it didnt have the sleeved wheels.

Jeff,
Did anyone ever scale that engine full of water and fuel and see what it's working weight was? Sure be fun to know.
She's a Beast! What is the MAWP now?

Thanks,
Dave

I will ask, I believe he scaled it when he hauled it home, but I do not know. Just driving it make the ground shake. It has a 125 mawp. The whole boiler is 7/16 except for one plate in the firebox is 5/16" which limits it.

They weighed it dry with a few pieces missing and dry at 36,000. It seems to take about 500 gallons to fill the boiler (based on time to fill).

Jeff,
That would make her about 2500 lbs. heavier than my 30 Cross Compound! Do you know if Mark Pederson ever weighed the big 40 Advance CC?

see the video below... I was wondering if this is a 12hp and who owns it ? Looking at some other clips posted by the same individual it might be Washington state ?

Glad you like the engine! As it so happens, that is my video (and my channel).

I don't remember 100% for sure, but I believe the engine is a 10hp model from 1890. It is owned by Gary Miller of Yacolt, Washington. The video is from last year when we had just finished putting the engine back together with its brand new boiler with the help of Alan Schurman. The engine still has some quirks that need to be worked out of it (such as when the throttle flopped over and stuck open at 7:57 in the video), but it is up and running. And don't worry, the timing is much better now.

Here's a picture of it running at our show just last weekend at Schurman's Iron Ranch. Sorry if it's not much of a picture but we were laughing about some pitch filled wood we had just gotten into and wishing we had some coal. Mr. Miller also has a 16hp Advance that we will hopefully begin restoring soon as well.

By the way, those of you coming to the Great Oregon Steam Up in Brooks, Oregon might get a chance to see the 10hp in person. We're working on it ...

We talked about the weight a while back. I want to say we settled on around 10k dry. I have no idea on the cleats...

I know of a 1904 that has the square style cleats...it is a 12hp and i realize the wheels could have been swapped or built before the engine was assembled.

Heat and press it back off?... That's what I'd assume Lund did. Hardest part is just setting it up in the press.

Gary and Dave
I just spent two day running this 22 Advance. I do not know if you remember this engine or not. It came out of the Christenson place near Conrad about 1980. It has not been out in many years now. Still a good running engine! A lot of fun!

Dean,
I was at that sale but I don't remember ever seeing that engine. I do remember someone telling me that they had one or two steamers but I think they were sold before the actual sale. There sure was a few high-dollar gas tractors there! I don't know where any of that stuff ended up.

This weekend, we steamed up our 22 HP Advance Rumely one more time before winterizing it, along with our A.J. Goodban locomotive.
