Here is an Advance tandem compound strawburner with the square head tank and another threshing scene of a big job.

Here are a couple of rarer Advance pictures. The first because of the full canopy and the second because of the Advance galvanized tank wagon. Does anyone know of any Advance water wagons around?
Thanks,

Dan,
You are right, Advances are Awesome. If you ever get the chance to look over the operators platform on a rear mount plowing engine like mine, immagine yourself doing engineer and fireman duties. The platforms are the most ergonomic (user friendly) that I have seen. The engineer is comfortable and out of the fireman's way and vise-versa. I've run the clumsiest of all engines to operate, the 110 Case, many hours and I have to say that an Advance is a Treat, not a Treatment!!

Dave i was just curious to what you think is clumsy about a 110. i would say they have good visibility, easy to steer and a nice high platform Ive ran the 40 Advance a fair bit and never imagined it to be real good in the plow field. firing wouldn't be too bad but the visibility and steering may not be so fun The CC motor would have good power though @ 150-60 lbs

Warren,
I was looking through your old Advance photos and noticed that there is one of what you thought was a 30 Cross Compound. I looked the photo over well and it must be a 40. The 30 would have the low pressure cylinder on the right and also the exhaust tube going to the stack on the right as well. The 40 was opposite of the 30. I love the old photos of the Advance engines, any engines for that matter.

Collin,
I just didn't find any good place to put my feet on the 110, nor do I find a comfortable seat to sit on. My feet got warm running the 110, which would be fine in the winter. My Advance has good visibility, a good place to put my feet, all the controls are within my reach, and it steers as easy as any engine (with a steering wheel). It would be nice to run on 150 psi though. I do have to admit, a 110 Case is a nice looking and sounding engine when pulling. I have plowed with both of Carl Mehmke's engine and they are both good runners.

Dave

Before this thread gets caught up in another Case / Reeves debate. I thought I would post a couple more Advance photos.
Thanks,
Warren Bellinger

I like this picture very much and feel priviledged to own an original cabinet photo of it. This shows a new 12 horse engine set up for seining fish. The Advance Thresher Company must have taken some pride in this outfit, as this exact picture was used on page 32 of the 1904 catalog. The caption read " An Advance engine rigged up for seining salmon on soft sandy shore. This 12 horse engine brought on two tons of salmon in one haul." Also notice the Advance advertising poster stapled to the back tool box. Further getting me to think Advance Company was especially proud of this engine?

Here are a couple brochures that I have. When fully opened up they turn into posters advertising Advance corner bracket engines. The first one is a 21 horse compound and the second one that I screwed up by not rotating when scanning shows a 20 horse engine.
Thanks,

Here is a rather large cabinet photo that didn't scan to well. It shows a 22 Advance with the square headtank in what looks like a pretty big operation.

Dave,

I hope someday to make a trip with my wife and daughter to Montana and North Dakota. The highlight of the trip would be seeing your 30 Advance as well as the 40 HP Gaar Scott and the 40 HP Advance in N. Dakota.

Here are a couple pictures of our 20 horse Advance Rumely in its natural setting. This is the way my Dad and Grandpa first seen it in the mid 50's. The second picture is of my Grandpa - Shelby Bellinger on the other end running the shredder, blowing the fodder into the barn.

I like all things Advance and really like Advance related advertising material. The Advance Thresher Company was ahead of its time in regards to advertising and promotional items. All companys had their catalogs, but Advance had a wide aray of posters, match safes, stick pens, needle holders, as well as playing cards, a checker board, and even a wood hanger with their logo. When I was playing around the other night, I scanned a couple of my favorite catalogs. Advance catalogs are very detailed and the covers are very artistic. I marvel at their beauty, especially when you realize that they used a stone lithography process in the begining.
Thanks,
Warren Bellinger

The first is a 1890 cover, the second a 1901 catalog that folded in the middle and could be placed in your pocket.
