Question Minneapolis Moline Avery Model V

HI All,

This is our latest addition to the family. It has a Hercules ZXB-3 four cylinder engine.

We would like to know how many of them were made.
Is there a registry for the V model?

Thanks for looking!
Candy

8,267 Avery/MM V were made from 1946 to 52. 1065 V's were made under MM after merger in 1951. Tractor weighed 1,700lbs.,used IZB3 motor 2.625x3" (64.9 C.i.) If compared to other MM models it is fairly high in production numbers. Alot of collectors avoid Averys as it is not truly a MM.

Thanks for information Molinegb,

My husband bought it as an impulse buy on at an auction. It was an oddball tractor and he just had to have it. When the price is right he just can't help himself.

We already had a guy trying to buy it from us before we got it home. So at least, we know someone other than us wanted it.

These "Averys" are confusing to the uninitiated (like me) as the name is used generically for both Avery of Peoria and BF Avery of Louisville...
MOLINE: could you clarify the V's engine history?? I have notes listing early models with Herc IXB3, 31/4x4, later models with an unidentified Herc 3x4, and also the generally (parts catalogs) listed Herc ZXB3 of 25/8 (your 2.625)x3. Unfortunately I hadn't begun noting sources at that time, so have no idea where the "early" engine info came from. Many thxx for any illumination/correction!!
On your collectors comment, I assume you meant MM collectors, or did you mean collectors in general?
CANDY: other posts apparently commented that ZXB parts (assuming that's what Moline meant and what you have) are not that easy to find, and've mentioned , besides the usual Herc sources, three others:
antiquemarine.com (ZXB's were "marinized"):
Ron Goller 419-784-1445;
Universal Auto Parts 1-800-422-0303 (the two phone #'s from a 2009 post). Good luck.

HI Bud Tierney,

Leave it to my husband to buy the tractors with the hard to find parts. He is drawn to them like a moth to a flame.

Thanks,
Candy

Bud: The Avery model V all used the ZXB engine. You need to watch piston rings for those engines. The ZX series pistons as was in the case of many other engines in that time frame used rings of different width. The Avery A and R use the IX engine + some of the later engines use the IXB engine with dry cylinder sleeves. The A was what produced after the Cletrac General. Confused?

Thanks for the picture Sharon. That's a great little tractor! It must be nice to be named after a tractor.

Hi Craig,
I have not seen one of those newsletter before.

We found a manifold for it. We are on our way.

Thanks everyone.
Candy
