Here is an interesting Harrison item. I have a tablet of these Engine Shop Record sheets. While I had it out the other day I scaned it. It measures 5 1/4" x 11 1/8"
Here is the pic.

Saddened to say that John Simpson, owner of the 20 hp Jumbo in Cabool, pasted away several weeks ago. Before his leaving us he made sure that his Jumbo stayed in Cabool and is now owned by the Ozarks Older Iron Club. The club has made some needed repairs (it has passed MO inspection) and will be fired up and operating at our Fall show this coming Oct. 11th & 12th.

A few photos of Harrison engines from not so many years ago. They were all good engines at the time of the photos. A shame HF can sell air compresses for under 50. dollars that hold way more air presser and come from China. It would sure be great to see a Jumbo running at a show in Il again. Gary

There is one 20 hp(I think) Harrison Jumbo at Northeast Indiana Steam and gas Association of Lagrange Indiana every year. Owned by Larry S. of Topeka, Indiana.

Harrison Jumbo engines #'s 2150,2341,and 2344 were sold new in Randolph county,Illinois. #2150 was the Wine Hill threshing company's engine near Steeleville,IL. #2341 was owned by a Liefer's family sawmill near Red Bud,Illinois. #2344 was owned by the Bremen threshing company near Chester,IL All three engines survived the scrap drives of WWII. Any steamer in use during WWII was usually kept.

I had a chance to review my late father's notes last Saturday.His name was, Lawrence. There was a Harrison engine that was used on a farm very close to Belleville,Illinois. Apparently the owners were using crappy water in the boiler.The water gauge valves had plugged with lime and mud which gave the engineer false water levels in the boiler. Well before long they had the crown sheet red hot that the steam pressure pushed it away from the stay bolts. But the crown sheet did not rupture!! The fusible plug failed also. One design of the Harrison boiler was that it was built with a steep arch crown sheet. This is probably why it did not rupture. Anyway, this engine went back to Harrison Machine Works. They repaired the boiler by beating the crown sheet back into its original postion then stayed the whole area with new bolts. This was engine #2340. The was the 6th last Harrison-Jumbo engine built around 1930. It did not survive WWII. Mr.Brandt told my father this story.( I am glad I wasn't on that engine when the crown sheet let go!)

I looked at the patterns displayed at Rock River threshing grounds...and most all of them for an old style jumbo are there...in fact there are duplicates of some...such as steam cylinders.... I spoke to Pete about the core boxes as none of them are displayed and he said he had those at a different location. It would not be too much to build a new old style jumbo from what is there as far as castings as long as you identify and use the correct core boxes. The pattern for a complete front wheel was real interesting.

Donald,
I would have to guess...but I would say the 16 or 17hp. I can not recall seeing casting numbers on the patterns, but if they are numbered all you would need is a parts catalog and then pick out the patterns you need. There were 2 different patterns for the large gear that went on the rear wheel as well.

Joe,
I took an inventory...the ones I saw are...
steam cylinder (multiple)
engine bed (multiple)
crank disk
flywheel
steam valve
steam cylinder head
steam cylinder head with stuff box
complete front wheel
rear wheel gearing (multiple)
front axle
smoke box door
connecting rod
grates
eccentric
crosshead
steps
feed pump

there were other patterns there but I could not see what they were because I could not move them or get close enough to them.

I would bet some of these patterns apply across to multiple size engines...what exactly is missing that is a show stopper in your book ?

I spoke to Pete too...he said he had all of the core boxes. People have started engines with a lot less than what is hanging on the wall.

My first impression looking at those patterns...it didn't look like much was there either....but then I started looking and comparing it to my list of castings and checking off parts.
