Default Ronaldson-Tippett tractors

Could anyone tell me which model(s) of Wisconsin engine was used in the Ronaldson-Tippett tractors please? The cylinders are cast in pairs, and I think the bore is 5 1/4".

Many thanks

Hello all
There is a book called Ronaldson-Tippett Tractor Catalogue. It might discuss the engines available. I don't know.
It is available as a reprint here or it may be available online if you look hard enough. I think Plough Books has it as well.
Here is a picture from within the book

Cheers Scott

It was one of the Wisconsin R series engines, although I'm not sure which one. I thought it was the RBU, but I've also read there was an RBT? I do know there were changes over the years, and the vaporising manifold was locally made. And, the later blocks with the webbing were perhaps even made by R&T? I'd like to know for sure.
