Default Twin City 27-44 New Toy

Went to look at this tractor today, and decided I needed another project. Serial number 250731, so looks like the first one built in 1930. Will look it over better in a few weeks when I get it moved home.

I think I may have looked this one over one time. I wasn't around Kingfisher was it? I looked at one there over 25 years ago and decided it needed too much and passed it up.

Always interested to see another one of these Big Twin Cams discovered. Some interesting manifold modifications on this one...will be interested to see it disassembled to check out what they were up to with the exhaust stack on the right side. Also looks like the OEM spindles got switched out for truck stock...Maybe IHC KB parts? The factory pulley shaft cover is in place and these don't turn up very often. Rear fenders are pretty decent originals...

Great pictures and good luck with your new project!

Judging by the steering arm that seems to be hanging in space your tractor appears to have received a steering sector transplant at the time the front spindles got changed. The drag link on this tractor originally ran diagonally underneath from the steering sector on the lower right side to the steering arm on the front left spindle. I don't know what's left of your original steering box but the steering wheel and most of the steering box parts off a Twin City 17-28 will fit this tractor. The steering shaft itself would be too short but that would be an easy piece to fabricate.

I thought I recognized it. I know I have the heavy steering box for a 27-44. One carburetor left, needs rebuilt. I think I still have a starting crank, not sure on that. May still be some manifold parts in the pile. Used to have a lot of 27-44 parts but the Nebraska boys bought a lot of my stuff when 3 of these were restored all together.

This one was for sale here in Kansas recently, I e-mailed the seller and never got a response, not sure if it sold or where it went.
Talked to the owner yesterday thanks to a stak member.

Moved the Twin City Saturday, now she is with most of my other projects. Loaded easier than I had anticipated.
