I had talked to someone about that frame brace at one time but don't remember the details any more.
I looked at the picture of Epping's E which is supposed to be the oldest left.
It does not have the brace as on the Edgar E, but it looks like something is in that area but it is hard to tell what it is.
Maybe Chris will let us know.
I just checked a copy of Rumely Collector's News from earlier this year which has 2 pics of a real early E recently found in the bush in Saskatchewan.
The pulley side does not have the brace.
Can't tell on the flywheel side because of bush.

Does anyone know if there are blueprints for a Rumley Oil pull tractor out there somewhere? My husband wants to build one in a 1/3 scale. Any help would be appreciated

Kim: Rather than re-writing my response to your querry. I gave you some thoughts to ponder in the Steamer's thread where you posted this same question.

That being said, anybody here have a pic of Paul Stoltzfoos [sic] nice little Rumely 15-30 that they could post here for Kim. I have some but they are not scanned. I know he used a Fairbanks gas engine, and a Rumely 12-20 under carriage [is that corret].

I have seen Paul's 15-30 when it was still under construction, but did not take a picture Same for his Otto tractor, on which he did a very fine job. He even sourced the old style chassis beams from two different places somewhere in the States!

Here is a great picture my good friend Joe Tielsman gave me.
He got to the first Rumely Expo in Rushville early one morning before there were too many people around.
I'm pretty sure that the B belong's to Ed Fiscus. I think he had just got it from Bill Krumwiede.
Not sure who the other tractors belong to.

Ross,
That is quite a line up of power above! Now here's a question, and it was asked of me just recently. Is Mr. Krumwiede still with us? Last I had heard, they had maybe moved off the farm and into Minot???? Very nice people, friendly and hospitable.
Thanks,
G.

As far as I know Rumely Bill is still with us. I did hear that he was in a "home" now. I don't know about his wife.
I took Dad out to Crosby in 90. He had never met Bill, only had conversed by letter and maybe on the phone.
I introduced them as I had met Bill several times, but did not know him well.
Sometime later in the weekend I told Dad that he should ask Bill if he was going to be home on the Monday and if so we could stay over and go down to see his collection.
Bill said that he would be home.
We got there mid morning the next day and Bill gave us the grand tour.
Well after a while they got talking Rumelies and old boy talk, so I just wandered around the yard.
I am so glad I was able to see Bill's stuff & give Dad the opportunity as he had always heard of Bill as he had heard of Dad.
A year or so later I heard that Bill was starting to sell stuff off & then Dad started getting sick.
I just get a warm feeling whenever I think of the trip.

Something that always stuck in my mind about the vist to Bill's was the story he told about the tractor pictured here.
It was his father's, I think from new. It is a 14-28
A couple of years later I thought I recognized it at a Rumely Expo.
I asked the owner about it and he confirmed that it had been Bill's & he got the same story.
Turns out this fellow & I had met briefly before at Rollag while I was in the fire box of the 120 Rumely rolling flues.
Well a lot of water has gone under the bridge since and he & I have become very good friends and have enjoyed lots of "Steam Showin" together.
