No MoRo.......just veed it out, welded and reinforced it.

You might be thinking of the Mogul which kept me and for several years.

Craig-do you know what year that 25-50 was built?

I appreciate all the photos and information on shows that have Townsend tractors. The photos are truly priceless in my research. I am trying to learn everything I can about them. Each post, and photo allows me to piece together (often guessing) a rough idea of changes made to the tractor/model year by year.

I think the 10-20 Townsend pictures I promised were lost with a camera. I thought they were saved on a computer, but can not seem to find them. I will keep looking.

Thanks again. - Jeremiah

Default A Townsend (I think) that I'm familiar with.

It took me a while to find the pictures, but here is what I think is a Townsend, along with a very nice Flour City, which I had the pleasure to haul from Sonora down to Tulare and back several years ago.





I didn't know about Townsend nor Flour City before this. Both are interesting tractors and it was a pleasure to meet the owner and learn about them.

Pete.

Actually I was thinking of This one (as shown in the first picture).

I knew they had a portable engine but didn't realize it was a Townsend too.

I snapped a couple pictures of it and kept on walking without asking about and I guess at the time I thought it was a Hart Parr portable.

Couldn't find my pictures in the computer but did manage to find them still on one of my old memory cards, and sure enough it looks like a Townsend portable setting next to the tractor.

And as per their request 3 years ago I Will NOT Say who the owners are. If anyone else on here knows or think they know who it is, PLEASE Don't mention their name as they prefer to remain anonymous.

I know that dad tried to buy the rough one that Morris had. I pushed really hard to make it happen but no go. I think dad found something he wanted more.

OK to dig a bit deeper, what's the deal with some having Bower City Tractor on the front of some of them? So there are 2 power units? F.J.W.
