Casemaker,Harrison built both styles of their traction engines for a period of time. I remember someone telling me that the old style engines had to be special ordered after they started to build the new style engines.

Larry,
that period of building both styles of engines lasted thru the end of steam engine production for Harrison which turned out to be many years. It is possible to find a early style Jumbo that is newer than a new style. They offered them and they built them. Offhand i dont know of another company that did that.

With an illustration of an old style Jumbo in the 1908 catalog, word for word," This cut is a good representation of the pattern of Jumbo Traction Engine, as built by us for a great many years. While the hearty welcome, and large sales of the NEW STYLE JUMBO would indicate that demand will be largely for it,at the same time we will prepared to furnish the above style also. We shall continue building it in sizes as formerly 10,12,14,and 16 horsepower. Catalogue showing the special and distinctive features of this engine will be mailed on request''.

This info is not in any of the other catalogs printed after the year 1908. BTW, 1908 was the first year of the 20HP Jumbo traction engine sales.

Stay tuned to the Jumbo channel!

We are making progress on rebuilding our jumbo but have run across these two pins (see pic with blow up of upper and lower). That we believe may of had a tool on it to assist in changing gears. Can anyone give us some guidance on what we should put there?

Thanks,

Greg

These are the shift lever pins. You release the locking arm then slide the large pinion over the smaller pinion and lock them. Move the intermediate gear into place , last.The pinions should slide easily over each other.

Figured I'd kind of resurrect this post......
I personally know the family that owns the Harrison Jumbo in Nixa, Missouri. It's been stored indoors for some years I hear. Last it ran was probably 20 or so years ago (iv been told) and drove in under its own steam. I'm good friends with the grandson to the true owner and have seen it up close. Theres been some discussion about getting it looked at again to see if its fit to light a fire in......
The one in Cabool, Mo was the "sister engine" to that one and the family parted ways with itmany years ago.They kept the one they still have (obviously)
