The last scans

In the last scan you can see the stamp of the local dealer, P.J.Nyberg. My grandfather bought a 1912 Flanders touring from him. Then a 2 1/2 Gade engine in 1913 and a Bull Tractor with a J.I.Case Plow Co. 3 bottom in 1917.

My brother has the Flanders now.

Here are a couple of catalog illustrations of the twin cylinder version of the early Kinnard Haines tractor Tom posted above. I know about the single cylinder tractor that still exists but these are the only photos/drawings I've ever found of the two cylinder version.

Probably a good time to ask again whether anyone knows the present whereabouts of this tractor? Is it still in Washington or has it moved on?

Here are a few photos from about 25 years ago and the gray haired gentleman in the first and last photo is Oscar Kinnard. His Grandfather and Father were the builders of that tractor. He had many stories about the company and their tractors. Oscar was a very interesting man to know and had many stories about the company and their tractors. I always enjoyed my conversations with him and his perspective on the early tractor industry. The young boy in the third photo (now in his mid 30s) is the son of the owner of that tractor. The more recent photos of it like the one above, show that the tractor must have been moved because it is no longer sitting in the corner of a cow yard. To say that Oscar was upset about the condition of the tractor and how it was being taken cared of would be a major understatement . . . . . I'm with Oscar on that!! It may be the oldest US made gas tractor in existence and deserves better. As far as I know, the tractor is still in the same family's hands out in Washington.

Roger, what size Flour City gas engine is that? Looks pretty big. Our family owns a 8 to 10 HP portable engine. Thanks for the pictures!!!

Jeff, it was a 12HP. There was no cylinder, head or piston but I literally had every other part to it including the ignition/valve cage and original oil cups. I gave up on it (my mistake) and sold to the Withers family of Osakis, Minnesota over 20 years ago. I don't know if they ever got it together but they had one with a cylinder but few of the other parts. Maybe they made one out of the two or possibly found/cast the needed parts and ended up with two engines. I know with the tremendous skill/shop Jim and Kevin had, they could accomplish the work needed. . . I never heard how things turned out.

Does anyone have any new information, pictures, or parts to finish this tractor? Parts numbers are a capital H or K followed by a two digit number.





We're going to build a tractor around this intake assembly.
