As seen else where,,, was the clutch optional or newer? this one has not. also do you set the valve while its hot, as the top is bolted to the dome and the engines bolted to the boiler,,, likely to be some bit of movement at temp changes? this one has no side tank,, maybe it should have or was allso an update or option

Has anyone ever seen a left handed flywheel AT traction engine? Our 1910(?) 12HP engine, #7855 non-girder type, is left handed and I have never seen even a photo of another one like it. Just curious if it was a custom order or if they made them as an option.

Mark

Mark the engine you have was built in to sizes 8 and 12, they were built from 1906 to 1916 to use up the left over parts from the bevel geared engines. when A&T started with the spur gear engines in 1904 sales fell off for the bevel geared engines.

What were the correct colors for a 1910 spur gear (non-girder) engine? I can still see some hints of a darker green and some off white or maybe yellow pin-striping. The heater looks to be a dark red, maybe a rust color (and not it's not just actual rust )

Dark red, dark green, pinstipes were yellow and orange. the wheels are red and the engine is green. Stripe it any way you want there were no two alike.
Jeff
P.S. you need one of my decals.

I run 20HP #8306. These engines must have been almost side by side at the factory.

Yes, it is a 1912 and has the special cleats on the drive wheels. I've been told that this is the second set of cleats since the old ones were wore down. It is now owned by Tom Ackerman from Waretown, New Jersey. I've been running it for him for a few years now. You said the parts book mentions these special wheels. Is this an original Aultman Taylor book and, if so, do you have any other original documents?

It is listed in a Original 1921 parts book and is the only 20 horse engine listed with the drivers. What kind of documens are you looking for?

Jeff W B,
Here is a 1991 photo of the same 25 HP Aultman Taylor that came from Colton,WA. This engine was restored about a year later. I remember that this engine only needed a new set of flues,piping and not much else. Personally, I liked this engine better without repainting it and replacing the jacket.You could still see the original pinstriping on the crank disc and the frame.
KEVIN
