The engine alone is a good 5 feet high!

Hi Guys

Boy I had to go a waaay back to find this thread.......8-25-06. Well I finally had a chance to stop in at Clydes again to see what was going on. Clyde and Lyle have been busy working on the rest of the Flour City. Making new fenders and tanks as well as painting and assembling the rest of the tractor. There are two other projects there as well but I will show you some photos of the Flour City first then post the others later.

Kelly T

The old fenders were quite rough and rusty so they made new ones.


New tanks.


Assembly out side.

Now that you have had a chance to check out the Flour City I will post some photos of Clyde and his 10-20 Titan. As I mentioned earlier with the before pictures this was local tractor. He sure does have it looking good! According to Clyde the tractor serial number indicates that this is one of the last 300 made. Also using the ensign carburator shows that is a later model.







I will try to keep you updated on Clydes projects as there are some interesting tractors scheduled to be delivered for him to restore.

Boy I had to dig a long way back to find this thread!

I was through Fillmore yesterday and took some pictures of the big Flour City that Clyde and Lyle are working on. It was hard to get back far enough to get a good picture of such a big tractor while it was inside.

This first photo is of the mechanism to disengage the drive gears for doing belt work. They had to make a new pinion as the old one was unusable.



The next two are of the tractor getting it's wheels reinstalled.





And her is one of Lyle and Clyde. Check out the size of those Bull Gears!



Of course once this tractor is finished there are more projects waiting outside. I will do my best to keep the updates coming as the Quincy is one of the upcoming projects.

Hello, I am curious about the one bull gear with the "S" spokes. Is this bull gear off of something else? Just wondering and thanks.

I looked through my pictures of the Flour City tractors in Crosby. One has curved spokes and I don't have a picture from the proper angle to tell on the other one. So am assuming the curved spokes were common but the straight spokes may have been used as well. It would be quite a coincidence to have another gear fit in place of the original. They bolt to the spokes and to find exactly the right diameter and number of teeth.........if someone found one to fit they should buy a lottery ticket!

Thanks! Both of our bull gear have straight spokes. Just wondering if we were wrong. I will look at a 40-70 here locally and pay more attention to the bull gears on that tractor.

I just got home from Crosby. The Flour City with the radiator like the one at Clydes has the curved spokes. The other one that has a different radiator ( square tank) has straight spokes. The one with the straight spokes was bought new in 1910 but I am not sure of the year of the other one. I am assuming in is a newer model??????

Kelly is running behind on this thread, so I better bring you guys up to speed. The flour city breathed for the first time in years. We had to belt it the first time because it was awful stiff. The second start up we accomplished with both Clyde and I on the crank, it started on the second compression. It really make some nice music, smooth running, no popping or banging, just about no vibration.

What year is the Flour City? I understand they made them into the 1920's.

The year is unknown, it's a late one probably built in the 20's. We think it is slightly older than John's at Crosby. It's hard to tell, I don't think they made two the same. Lyle Stomp

Hi Guys

Sorry.....it has been a long time since I have been at Clydes. The Flour City has left and has been replaced by another tractor. But the Quincy is the one receiving the attention right now. As you can see from the pictures the engine is pretty much assembled and it won't be long until it is ready to run.

The first picture is of John and Clyde discussing the progress made on the Quincy/Allwork.
http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/file...7/IMG_0026.jpg

This next photo shows the factory split in the timing cover to allow the governor to be worked on. It looks like someone had made a repair to a broken casting but it was cast in two separate pieces.
http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/file...7/IMG_0027.jpg

The next shows the unique cam bearings that are bolted together on the camshaft then installed with the cam into the end of the block and held in place with setscrews.
http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/file...7/IMG_0034.jpg

This one is of the side of the engine showing the oil pump and oil level gauge.
http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/file...7/IMG_0035.jpg

Thats all for now I have some of the complete tractor to post. I will do that later, as well as some photos of the next tractor waiting outside for Clyde and Lyle to work their magic on.

Here are a few more photos.

The first two are of the Quincy before it was loaded in Crosby for the trip to Clydes.

http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/file...7/IMG_9352.JPG

http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/file...7/IMG_9359.JPG

These next two are of the clutch assemblies. The keys and the groves that the keys ride in had to be refurbished. As well as the bushings and drive coupling that connected to the end of the engine opposite the flywheel.

http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/file...030_448057.jpg

http://www.smokstak.com/gallery/file...7/IMG_0032.jpg

Now that is all I have of the Quincy for now.

Later I will post some pictures of the next tractor to come into the shop. I am sure it will get everyones attention!
