Default Build a Baker ◊ 2

The only thing better than restoring a Baker is to do two of them.

So,we had a bit of a learning experience, it seems that the bolt pattern on a Wisconsin D 2 (5 1/4 bore)engine is different than on a D 3 (5 1/2 bore). Unfortunately, I only have a D 3 head. Any one out there in Stakker Land have a spare. D 2 head on the shelf?

While we figure out how to solve our piston dilemma, it seemed prudent to attack another challenge. This Baker came without the steering mechanism, but the parts tractor had the housing and crosspiece, but was missing the internal parts. Fortunately Baker 1 has a complete assembly,so we had some patterns to copy. This is a very unique steering actuator that I have not seen on any other tractor.

Default Baker Build

I couldnít find my previous posts, so Iím starting a new one.The first head we were going to try flunked the magna flux test. The head shown had an ugly patch on it,so I ground it off and cut it back to solid material. Hopefully this one will check out. It needs seats and guides. Both heads that came with the tractor look like they were salvaged from the bottom of the sea. A pic. of the new inner bull gear covers, and bull gears from the parts tractor.

Question Re: Baker Build

You now have three Baker threads here, this one, https://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=162972 and https://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=167215

If these are all the same tractor how about I merge them into one thread so everyone knows where it is?.......

Fabricating, cleaning, painting parts. The bull gears from the parts tractor were used since the were in like new condition, this tractor must have done a lot of field work, based on the wear of the original gears. It was a challenge drilling the holes correctly, installing felt seals, and sealing the halves together.

This winters progress to date: the fenders are rehabbed, painted and installed on Baker 1, new fenders are fitted on Baker 2, ready to be dismounted and hit the paint booth. The head is in a machine shop all repaired, machined, and waiting on springs. I think I could have recast it out of gold for less money than I have in invested.

Looks good, precarious tot tractor position not withstanding! They will have a challenge staying on top of that valve cover on a running engine!
