Yes, so far i don't have rear hubs but would like to find some. I would be interested in the cutoffs. You know, it seems very hard to find any manuals for these, even in reproduction. If these are orphans that fits very well with my collection.

Have several manuals on KT and KTA. Think there is 6. Serial numbers in 38 started with 306282 and last was 306751. My 38 is 306636. Would have to check on others to see what axle is on them. There is a 30 KT and a 35.36.37.and another no sn one in boneyard.

You know, Jerry had a pair of extensions and he can't remember where they went, they sat in his trees for years. I haven't been able to find any, ustabe you couldn't give them away.

That tractor was bought new from the Waterloo MFG Co in Waterloo Ontario by a doctor in that area and then bought second hand by a family in the Milton area.I know the second owners son and he told me he remembers pulling tree stumps out with that tractor when he was younger

Russ, I have one rear hub,but you would have to rivet new spokes to it. The originals are rusted off even with casting. This is available if you want it. Jim

Thumbs up Re: KTA M&M Minneapolis Moline Twin City Project

Some years ago we went to out to Rosholt, South Dakota (our sister city) for their Threshing Bee.
A fella at the show had just hauled down a HUGE, all wood, separator, (Minneapolis I believe).
The owner was proud as a Peacock as he should because that thing was in outstanding condition.
Anyway he wanted to thresh with so some younger fella pulled in with in either a KTA or FTA Twin City, KTA I think.
I looked at that thing and thought "No way in hell is that tractor going to pull that separator!"
I was in awe (or as awe as I ever get...... ) when the tractor handled it perfectly.
I couldn't believe it and wouldn't have believed had I not witnessed it.

21-32 doesn't compare to KT which oddly never had a rating that I know. Would guess KT as 15-30 rating. Basic KT 3-4 and Ft 4-5 plow. KT has way more snap but not even close on lugging of G/Ft/21-32

I never had one of these apart, didn't even stop by when my friend was doing his. Just a look at the combustion chamber says a lot to me.

Which head is on KTA? Original was Ke 251c. Most were changed to Ke 251D
which was stamped HC. Many of originals were updated to run gasoline. Compressioon only went up from 5 to 1 to 6 to 1
