That sure seems like a beautiful engine!! Where did this engine come from?? Was it ever run since restoration?? There was one like that here in PA a little while back but we are not sure what happened to it.....

What I want to know is the engine fired or did you wait for the right clouds to come? BobRR

The seat is up there because the engine was horse steered It was probally changed over by Case about 100 years ago. Its a real neat engine different than any other Case engine i have been around. It has a small steam engine mounted on the side with a water pump attached to feed the boiler Does anybody have any specs on this engine I would like to know what it weighs

On page 67 of my 1992 Case Expo showbook by WMSTR at Rollag, has this to say:

First built in 1884, this improved model of traction is different than its predecessor, in that, it is equipped with a hand steering device - the first of the companies traction to be so equipped. Horse guiding was optional.

The reverse lever is now placed in a vertical position making it more convenient to handle. This engine was built in the following sizes: 8, 10, 12, and 16* horsepowers. (*Do not believe that the 16 horse size was a traction. (?) )

Horse Power 12.
Dia. of Cylinder 7 1/2".
Length of Stroke 12".
Length of Boiler 117".
Diameter of Boiler 26".
Length of Firebox 33".
Width of Firebox 24".
Height of Firebox 29".
No. of Flues 40.
Length of Flues 72.
Diameter of Flues 2".
Sq. Ft. of H.S. 156
Sq. Ft./H.P. 13
Dia. Flywheel 42".
Rev. Per Min. 200.

I hope this information is correct?

You got a nice looking engine . . . enjoy!

That is one fine looking engine--I note what must be the orig. brass engine number tag on the dome. I'd be very interested in that number--thanks. And also, if it will be under steam in '06, I'd sure appreciate knowing at what show?
