Question Olin Garden Tractor (1918, 1920)

We are looking for any information on the above machine. It was mfg'ed by Fred Olin of Olin Gas Engine Co. Buffalo N.Y.
The only info that we currently have is;
(1) an article in Vintage Garden Tractors, by Dave Baas,
published 1990, (with picture).
(2) mentioned in, Encyclopedia of American Engines, by
Charles Wendel.
(3) coment from an american researcher on rare tractors that;
it may be an interesting historical find as none have
surfaced in the U.S.A.
(4) it's oral history since it arrived in New Zealand.
We would appreciate any assistance in increasing our knowedge of it's manufacture, distribution, history, and manufacturing factory. It will give us more pleasure when taking it to shows if we can inform others of those ,who, what, where, when questions.I would include photos if I knew a bit more about computers.
Thanks in anticipation of some knowedgable responces.
