Default Early style two-cylinder Kinnard Haines Tractors

Does anyone have any information or, better yet, pictures on the 20 or 25 hp Kinnard Haines two-cylinder tractors? Info is little to non-existant on the two-cylinder but maybe someone has seen something in an early magazine/publication like American Thresherman.

I am especially looking for bore and stroke sizes and placement of the crank throws but ANY information would be welcomed.

Thanks!

When you say early, how early do you mean? And is it a Kinnard Haines tractor, or a Kinnard Haines Flour City that you're looking for?

My thought is Ben is not refering to the Flour City Jr. I have been told by one person that Kinnard Haines/Flour City made a two cylinder horzontal engine and placed it on self propelled trucks. They know this to be true as they have an original tri-fold Flour City brochure showing this tractor. We have all seen pictures of the single cylinder horizontal gas engines that Kinnard Haines put on trucks to make some of their very first tractors. As I mentioned this brochure shows a two cylinder version of this. If I make a drive I can see this brochure. Just have not done so.

Yes, Bruce, that is correct. It would be somewhere between 1900 and 1907 when they built their first tractors.

It would be great to see what that brochure shows. It's nice to know at least a picture exists of one.

Hi Ben, You can PM me if you wish. My hope is to get a lazer copy of this brochure. You have a valve cage or something from an early model such as this don't you?

Here is an ad from a 1904 Canadian Thresherman. It is believed that one of these was one of the first gas tractors ever sold in western Canada?

There may have been a twin later on. The catalog I have only shows singles. The 25 stationary was a single.

It will be interesting to see what Bruce finds out.

The fools thought the gasoline engine would replace steam.
