Default Avery 6 Cylinder Model C, 1919?


Carburetor needs a new float.

The Cimarron Heritage Center recently received this tractor. Unfortunately we did not receive any documentation with it. The tractor is in running condition but needs TLC. The current identification is based on a random/borrowed web photo of a similar tractor which appears to be in another museum or private collection. I am linking to that image instead of including it because it is on the large side.

I have posted several full sized images of our Avery tractor to my personal blog. https://zombieengines.blogspot.com/#Avery

We want to nail down the identification of this tractor and obtain copies of any documentation available. Additional phots would be helpful in the restoration. Where to look for the data plate on this tractor?

We have a short video of the tractor driving on the CHC grounds. I will post a link when I can snag it.

Definitely looks like a 6-12 C Avery.
Should have a number stamped on top of the chassis rails, just behind the radiator.

Thanks helping me locate the data plate. Looks like the Tractor Number is 25129 and the engine number is GL1687. Size maybe 6CYL C or 6CXT C.

Now to figure out what it means.

On the steel wheels site, tractor number 23415 is listed as a 1921 model.

Is that little unit a 6 cyl or a 4? I can't help but think that if Avery had gave up on the old heavy weight design years earlier they might have survived for a much longer time. Heck they were trying to compete with designs like the Farmall and Deere's modern fleet at that time with basically total antiques already at the time they were built!

6 CYL C is the model, as for 6 cylinder model C

With that number it is probably a 1920 or 1921 tractor.

In an email with Dave at the Steel Wheel site suggested it would be better to not paint the tractor. I contacted our curator and we agreed it should not be painted. So I think that's a win.

I think the next step is to see if I can dig up any history on this particular tractor. Start with remembering to ask the curator for the name of the nice man who donated it. Maybe someone will recognize the name and go from there.

I came across this article in a 1919 journal and thought it was worth posting here.
