The Bryan was a trade from Norman Pross.
It makes me sick to think about but Pross traded the Bryan for the 30-60 Townsend that was there (it's the one at Rollag).
The estate owner apparently wanted a Bryan.......

Looks like the Big Four, Gaspull, and Cletrac are all missing engines? Are the engines on the farm somewhere?

Hello Jim. Sorry to hear of the gentlemans passing. Many thanks to him for saving all these great items from scrap yards, etc. What a find!! I could only dream of finding anything like this in Australia. The best ive found so far was a 25hp Titan Tractor. Please keep myself and all the other "rustaholics" out there informed. Would love to come to the auction or try purchase privately.
Kind regards, Tony Forrest

Wow! Now there was a fella I would have liked to have met! He sure had good taste in finding the rare stuff. Looks like I could have spent a week there looking around, the little Flex-Tread makes me drool. I'm a realist, I know I can't touch anything bigger!

THANKS JIM
for sharing this with us. I think this was a proud man who enjoyed his toys and yet in his old age when he could not do as when he was younger he still let people come and have a look at the gear he had saved and restored. When I see stuff out side put up on blocks he did care for it deeply. Hope it all finds a good home, he would have liked that. Did he save any IHC International tractors.

Jake.

Sounds like the guy had style. Were the niece and nephew close? They know what its worth, are they going to keep a couple of pieces in his honor? Keeping the place?

I first met the man (seeing no one has stated his name, I won't) back in 1967 and bought a engine from him. Came back in 1970 and bought a shingle mill. Took me thru his quonset that housed all kinds of collections. There are a couple old cars in there. There was a Kansas City lightning gas engine out in the yard last time I was there about 3 years ago. Some gas engines are in one of the sheds. Stuff all over. Will be a interesting auction and I will be there.

Ty Buice: No engine in the big 4
Brad: With all the old iron hiding in every corner it's possible.
Aussie TD-40: There was some more common tractors out in the barn but I don't remember what all was there.
Guy Fay: The neice and nephew do not live in the area as far as I know.
Here are four more pictures inside the small shed.

These four pictures are steam related so I grouped them together in case they need to be linked to the steam engine forum.

Exclamation Re: Exploring an old farm.

SO FAR folks have been kind, and smart enough, to not post any names associated with this trove.

Let's be sports and KEEP it that way until there is a FORMAL announcement.......

I am sorry that I never had a chance to meet this gentleman. I was up in Wisconsin on a looking trip a couple of years ago. Something tells me a tour from him would have been really special. It was nice that he let people see his stuff. Keep us poted on what is going to happen.

The next pictures will take you inside the big shed. This is where I spent the most time during the self guided tour. It will show you the dedication this fellow had for collecting. Also how much he cared about his collection. Sorry about the poor pictures. It was hard to step back to get good pictures.
