I used to run the one at Crosby. I know that it was claimed to be able to pull a 4 bottom plow, but I rather doubt it as most of time it's all it can do to just pull it self. And yes that one is in need of serious over haul, but that had to be one of the poorest designs they offered! The carb is easily 3 ft from the cylinder on either cylinder. The gear change was something of a mystery as you couldn't shift the one gear with out stopping the engine as it would flywheel freely while the engine runs.

Does anybody have the correct production numbers for each model of the heavy weight series of Rumely's aswell as the survivor rate of each model from the K up ?

Mr. Stolzfuss from Pennsylvania gave me a list many years ago. For exisiting tractors, Mr. Wellman from Ohio often comes on here. He will have a reliable number.

That list is what I have. It shows over 5,000 30-60 Es built in 1917. Ron Miller thought it is a typo error, but that doesn't 'scour'. I believe it is an apparent error due to Rumely's changing their series of numbering the different models.
We can only guess at that, of the total production and of the total remaining. Some surveys and estimates may be fairly complete.

There was some discussion in the Rumely Collector's News many years back about that discrepancy in the 1917 figures. Perhaps Mr. Miller was involved in that. I have those magazines here and will try to find them.

The article written by Ron Miller was in the November/December 1990 Antique Power Rumely issue. "5,000 Rumelys at the Slip of a Finger". One of the five blocks of serial numbers listed in the Rumely parts book is 7997-8902. I agree with Ron that the 2997 should have been 7997. No E's with a serial number between 2997-7996 are out there or on the registry.

Not sure what they did to the platform, it doesn't appear to be an improvement.
