Default 21-32 Hawkeye Grader

Going to start a restoration on a Twin City/Hawkeye Road grader and would like to find original photos beyond whats in the current books available, are there any out there?. Im new to Twin City tractors and most of the history and look foward in learning more about them as the restoration progresses. There is one specific area of interest on the grader I need a photo of, the crank start assembly from the rear right portion of the cab to the sliding mechanism that engages the crank start into crank rod. Thank you!.

In the Twin City photo archive book there are pictures of both the 17-28 and the 21-32 with the Galion grader. The starting crank seems to be in the front on those. There is also pictures of a 17-28 with a differant style of grader. This one has a starting crank running the full length of the tractor on the right hand side. It exits out the right rear side of the cab. Is this the style of grader you are refering to?

Chris,
The Hawkeye grader with 21-32 Twin City under it has been saved from being scrapped twice over the years.
I am very pleased to see that you have it and are going to give it the restoration it deserves!
Welcome to Twin City collector land.
Most folks seem to miss the fact that your grader is powered by an FT-I, 21-32. This is an industrial version that is very low production, and at this time there are two of them known to exist. There is one FTA-I (later industrial) known.
This will make for an unusual resto project that will get lots of attention along with being rare....congratulations!
I sent a Twin City photo archive book to you on friday, you should have it shortly. It shows Hawkeye and Gallion graders.
When you get your new book, call me with pen and paper in hand and I will get you up to speed on a bunch of TC history

P.S, I have a 21-32 front axle here to replace that ugly welded up one on the front of your new toy

That grader looks like quite a project and well worth saving. Keep us posted on your progress.

Tony and/or Jim. Is this Twin City archive book available? Where would I get a copy?

Phil,
As Jim suggested, you can get a Twin City Tractor photo archive book from E-Bay.
I would like to add in a bit more info.
This book is a black & white pictoral history that is a must for anyone interested in TC. Edited by Peter Letourneau and released in 1993, the book has been out of print for some time. Original price was $30. They got pricey for a short time but an unknown quantity of "defective" ones with loose glue on binders have been circulating lately (e-bay) and if you are patient you can score one for about $15 or so?
A few captions are placed with incorrect photo's, however, they are a great source of good information.
