Sounds very nice indeed and you are a lucky man to have such a treasure! I am hoping that the owner of the only European example will be bringing it to the YVA show at Newby Hall in Yorkshire next week.

Craig..............the top end has an oil feed that keeps the 'cups' full on the rocker-bar. It drains down the push-rod tubes. Roger plans to get the leaky radiator repaired, add a little more paint, and get Big Charlie ready for the July GOTO in Ohio.

Charlie is a little brother to the Model E but Big Charlie got his name because when he was rebuilt in 1946-47 more than 20-thou was shaved from the head and we think 1st-over pistons were installed. He always had good compression.........and now a few more thou was shaved to plane the head and the tops of the cylinders.

Hello Chris..........Dennis in Wisconsin..........talking about my brother Roger in Georgia where Big Charlie has come to live.

The rocker 'cups' have a lot of oil to splash around.

Roger's shop is mostly full of semi-tractors but he has been familiar with Big Charlie since he was 7 or 8 years old.

---------- Post added at 02:23 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:17 PM ----------

Brasherman...........Big Charlie and Roger are a LOT camera shy! You had best have a chair in the shade and a beverage handy though, if you see Roger at a show and ask him anything about Big Charlie.

The old L sounds great! Maybe one day I'll have a chance to chat with you guys at a show and see Big Charlie in person. Don't be camera shy. Hope to see more pics and videos in the future to keep us salivating.

A little more about the oil system............This Midwest motor has a drilled crankshaft to feed the bearings..........a baffle-plate is mounted just above the oil level in the pan and directs oil "mist" that splashes from the crank upward through the push-rod tubes.......thats the feed to the head that has a vent (notice the multiple vent-holes on the right side in the video) so the mist has no back pressure. When there is too much oil in the head it simply drains back down the tubes. Reference to Post #35.

The motor block has two 7/16ths drain plugs between the push-rod tubes that are meant to be drained at the same time as the crankcase. Roger said that when he was checking to make sure everything was getting oil, he pulled one of the inspection plates and oil 'shot' about 10-feet across the shop floor from the crank at idle-speed.

The original gas tank has surface rust inside but does not leak. Roger cleaned it out with a vacuum but has not removed the tank. He plans to do a little more frame painting and will install the air-cleaner pipe with a filter inside of the water-bath before he take Big Charlie to the Plain City GOTO.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Roger at the Orange Spectacular. It was great to meet Roger in person and learn the family history of this rare A-C tractor, and the journey back to running condition. I also got to chat with his sister Barb and brother-in-law on Friday. This is one of the models that most A-C nuts like me can only dream of owning.

Roger, thanks for taking time to chat and allowing my girls to climb all over the tractor and get their pictures taken!

Absolutely AWESOME. NO ONE CAN APPRECIATE THIS OLD TRACTOR MORE THAN BOTH OF YOU!!! THANKS FOR SHARING. I'm in the process on tracking down some of Dad's old tractors myself. So far got 2 of them. I can appreciate the joy this must bring to your family! Now if I can only figure out where Dad's old Allis 25-40 that sold late at the Erdle sale got to?

Brain Post the pictures of your girls, I do allow a lot of kids on Big Charlie. We got to Freeport, Ill. for that show, It was to honor the people that started the GOTO and the Old Allis News. We had a good time there. Dave Harington of Nebraska was there with his duplex tractor, witch is two 6-12's put togather, back to back. Then on to LaPorte, Ind. for there GOTO and Rumely show. Big show, over 700 AC tractors and equipment there. We went home to Ga. for 2 weeks, now to Union Grove, Wis. with a little side trip to Milwaukee for the AC plant thing and road trip.
Then back home for 5 or 6 shows in Ga. Fla.& Ala. Roger Weinhold AKA Charlie 1925

Roger, how was the Union Grove show? I'm surprised no one has posted pictures on the A-C forum yet.
