I have nt access to the specs on the Sawyer-Massey IC tractors regards bore & stroke, RPM ect. But there is a big difference in horse power out put between burning kerosene with a hot manifold as opposed to burning gasoline with cold intake air. What set up did they have when they made the 2 hour run at 58.3 at Winnepeg?

The tractor was in Class C for gasoline fuel and would have been the same, or similar to the set up on the one in post 26 in this thread. Sawyer-Massey only had entries in gasoline and steam that year and nothing in kerosene.

Relief exhaust ports not being conducive to high out put. Maybe they did get the later ones up over the 60 horse mark and were able to rerate them.

The boss sent some pictures to post. Here's the tractor with the twisted remains of the canopy all gone! Not sure I've ever seen a 20-40 sans lid? Anyway, looks very different. It will be neat to see it with new canopy with ESG's fancy lettering. She was working on the art work today.
His second photo shows the end of the fuel tank where something had been soldered on there in the past. Anyone have any thoughts on what this might have been?
Also, to Mr. Halcon, some experimentation was done today with your suggested method of removing that crappy red oxide paint. Looks like that is going to work and will take a couple of applications. Thanks!

Could it be a couple of bullet dents. and filled with body solder.

G: I am noticing that the rails of the canopy frame are full length, something I have never seen on a Sawyer before. Were these a later addition, or did Sawyer-Massey provide it with a contractor's canopy?

Likely a later addition. They are galvanized and appear to have been windmill legs! The other canopy parts are plain steel.

When you were talking about the 4 stacks, I took a few pictures today. There is a factory cap thats a casting over the intake. The elbows look like they have been on the tractor since new.

It is 6C here on Christmas Day. The deer are pawing through the corn stubble looking for stray ears. In keeping with the spirit of ESG's thread, I was out to the shoppe this morning and fired up the Eagle.
The ol' Queen fired up first roll over. It is dull in the shed and the tractor is in a dark corner. It was too much to get her outside. Some pictures are with flash but the regular pix seem to show proof that she is indeed running.
I had to come home to bake a pie for Christmas supper or would have stayed longer. Tomorrow is Boxing Day, as we call it here - might fire up another one tomorrow!
Merry Christmas everyone,
Aloha,

And a few more of the Eagle. She is a 20-40 Improved model and threshed through this area back in the day. I have had her for over 30 years and if I ever went broke, this is the last one that would go!

Mr. Halcon,
The old lad who threshed with it here was an ol' steam man - Sawyer & Massey. He had those gauge glass sets on everything!

Jim,
Thanks for that. Two Eagles and an X Oil Pull sat in the yard about five miles from here and they disappeared some time in the late 60s(?). It was a bit of an odd happenstance that I was able to bring the one back home!

G, I may have to stop in if you're getting the tractors out tomorrow.

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday and taking advantage of this fantastic weather!

Merry Christmas

Mr. Isaak,
My camera takes video, I think, but i wouldn't know how to place them on here.
Didn't get anything else started since the Eagle. It has been cold, damp, dark, dreary, windy and crappy since Christmas and not nice for opening shed doors. It is snowing right now.
Some day, you should bite into that huge bank account of your's and hop on WestJet and come to Hamilton. I'll pick you up and buy you supper. You could show me how to make and upload videos.
Aloha,
RM
