Default Halfbreed Hog Trough

Starting on one of my many Halfbreed projects. This one is a small Bessemer. I'm a Reid man don't know if I can get it to run on not.

Thanks David. I got right into it this weekend. Not stuck it's loose real loose. Mains and crosshead need poured. Clutch side of crank has some wear.

I have a F/T bed that needs new Babbitt at the mains. I'm planning it for October. Mine look about the same

Getting ready to pour the mains. Didn't worry about the wear on the crank. There will just be more babbit in that area. Leveled the bedplate to the shaft and centered the throw. One of the main caps had been brazed back together at one time. But it had cracked again. I was lucky to find a matching pair here on Harry's..

Poured the crosshead and the main caps nice and thick should run for another 100+ years.

Flywheel and clutch Key removal made easy. Drill it and tape it , screw in a grade 8 bolt with a spacer and pull it in tight. Also a hammer and a little heat is needed.

Had this little halfbreed running. It's a Bessemer, hard to start. Takes very little fuel and a cold hot tube to start .Now it's water tank plumbing and skid building time. We always use the old time pipe fittings, getting hard to find. Picked up this nice riveted tank at Cool Springs this year. A little closer.

It took me longer to upload this video than it did to pour the crosshead. https://youtu.be/tdjX9HujbII
