Here is another view of the place. The building in the center is the Blacksmith shop built in 1924. It had a 5 hp. Faultless powering a line shaft with an air compressor, pedestal grinder, post drill, 25 lb. trip hammer, and a lathe. The other red building to the right and in the distance was the elevator built in 1926. It had a 6 hp. Field engine in the basement later replaced with a 6 hp. M International and eventually an electric motor. You can see how the iron is all spread out. Lots of time was spent sweeping with a metal detector and prying things out of the ground.


The brochure picture of the tractor has a muffler below the left cylinder. I'm not sure if this is correct for the tractor but it was in the pile. If it's for something else does anyone recognize it?


I had posted this in the other thread with the single cylinder tractor. I think it's a neat signature piece for the tractor. The bolt in the clevis was loose and would still turn out by hand!


The drawbar guide. It's interesting to see the blacksmith work on these parts.


Some front axle parts. The K 68 number is the same on the 40-70 Flour City tractors. Looking at the original tractor picture Jeff Wahl posted Here it appears the front axle casting is the same as the later tractors like the 40-70.

Photo Re: Early style two-cylinder Kinnard Haines Tractors

Somehow I missed this thread before, but figured I'd repost a picture I posted in another Kinnard Haines thread now that I saw the catalog shot Tom posted in Post #11.

I have the Original picture from the Reed Brothers unit in front of the barn and a couple other shots of it.

Figured they may as well be shown together.

Nikki, all the Bull parts I had went to another collector. There were only two or so parts so there wasn't much at all. All the parts I had for other tractors are also gone now to help pay for the Flour City project.

Otto, that is interesting to see an original picture to compare to the catalog. I had done some scaling from the two cylinder drawing in the catalog but it seemed like the proportions weren't matching what I already knew. I thought the catalog was more artistic than it was photograph.

Here is a picture of some fresh castings for the tractor!

As per the 'testimonial' they sent in with their picture the thresher is an Advance 32x52 with self feeder and attached stacker.

They also mention the shredder in the other picture as being a 12 roll Advance Husker Shredder.

I believe they were already using BOTH of the Advance units with their previous power source which was a large portable engine.

Ben,
Did you ever find or make any new parts?

Tim,

No, did not find any new parts or even leads. I haven't made any new parts yet either, too busy with other projects. I am slowly working on modeling the entire tractor with CAD and have about 40% finished. The frame itself has been taking a lot of time because of all the unknowns.

I attached two pictures showing the collection of parts as they are now. There are a few 20-35 FC parts and possibly a few things that are something else entirely. It may not look like much but I am excited to get started on this project.

Ben,
I thought you were behind this but forgot to ask when I met you. Any new castings or progress?

Hi Tim,

It was nice meeting you at Rollag. There have been a few more castings poured. More is in the works but will take awhile yet. The goal for now is to start assembly next fall.

Nothing new yet. Some castings are still in the works. I have been studying other Flour City engines and tractors and taking notes. Haven't learned anything big or found any new parts.

Here is a somewhat recent solid model. Most of the major parts are figured out. The details though...

Smile Re: Early style two-cylinder Kinnard Haines Tractors

Man that model looks nice! I bet you've got QUITE a few hours into that. I spent ten years as a full time CAD draftsman, but never did get much into 3D stuff, other than a few little parts here and there. I remember spending one whole day laying out JUST one part in 3D, to make sure I got the three angles correct that had to tie in together on that piece. Never did get into solid modeling, but I wish I had. I started out drafting with CAD back in 1995, and it's amazing to me the leaps and bounds technology has grown since then.

Keep up the amazing work, I know someday you'll have a finished machine that we will all look at and drool over, just like Kory Anderson has done with his 150 Case.

Mike

I agree Mike.

I was happily informed of a new part this week! Turns out the 30-50 used the same steering worm wheel (and worm too I would imagine) as this tractor.

Thanks Mike! I really admire the guys that did use and the ones that still do use 2d CAD. I have used it and much prefer the 3d stuff!

Craig, yeah, you got me there. Good things are worth the wait!

And here they are. I am glad that Kinnard and Haines used some of their early work in later tractors!
