Scanned copy from supply catalog The Banting Mfg Co The Greyhound built this Thresherman's tank. This water wagon made it to new home in Indiana August 2011. This model H tank never left from Defiance County Ohio. Wheels were installed either wooden or cast wheels.

Jim O,
683 is an Avery number on the hubs.
Your tank and wheels look to be Avery, but I have not seen any with wood axles. That does not mean they did not make them. All the water wagons I have seen including my three have heavy steel axles.
Any idea why they cut the top out of the tank?

Steve

Steve, The fellow I bought it from torched the top out to make saddle tank supports for his sprayer. The bottom is all rotted out also. Although it would still be possible to weld in new sections to save the riveting. The running gear is very heavily built and is definitely not a farm truck. I'm kind of getting interested in this project and may tackle it sooner then latter.
THANKS! Jim
