In one of the photos I see Wayne Walker eyeballing it. I'm sure he either brought it home with him or at least made someone pay for it.

I didn't write down prices, but I remember the Missouri Iron Works engine brought 12-13K. I have no idea where it was going.
Overall they moved through the engines pretty fast, although I think prices were a little on the high side.

Smile Re: Norm Davis Estate Auction Pics....

The very first bid the auctioneer started for $2.50 and 2 seconds later said sold. Most of the sale was that way. Engines were pretty high to fair. Some were worth more. I wondered what some odd names were, most turned out to rail road inspection car motors. Some were cheap others fair.
I bought a few parts. If I had bid on some of the cheaper ones, they wouldn't have been. I did not see over 100 nunbers but many more people.

we arrived just before sale start, i had #128. I think Steve had 12500 on it which sounds right. The Harris engine was interesting, could have had a lot of fun with that for a homemade tractor.

I like the pots and pans used for the cooling tower in picture #3. That's good stuff.

The pots and pans. were on several engines for cooling. He has hundreds upon hundreds of them hanging from the rafters in his sheds.

Yep...the guy in the hoodie was the high bidder on the Missouri....prices are now posted with most of first pics of the engine (if multiples were taken). I have a poor video of the missouri selling. sold in 1 minute...the auction was very fast and you had to be paying attention. I like a fast auctioneer....

Stooped to see the Missouri iron works today. All the extras had been stripped off and it looks better, but still missing a lot of original parts. Was amazed with what all had been done to make it run as a working engine. We spent a lot of time trying to figure out how the original governor would have worked, think we might have a handle on it but it would really help if there are any pictures out there. Is this the only one? If anyone knows of one or any pictures contact Wayne.

I don't know where the Missouri Iron Works engine went to but I sure would like to see it at a show when it is done. I have tried to look up information on this company but have come up empty. Was this engine made by someone else for them or were they their own engine design? Is this the only one still known to exist?

Thanks

What engine is the grey one with the blue pump jack? Never seen one with a flywheel clutch before? Is it an original set?
Have to agree the Missouri is a very interesting engine, will be nice if it is put back to original.

That's a Baker Mfg, Monitor. Looks like a 3hp.

Dave,

The engine you are asking about is probably a 3HP Monitor HJ Pumping Engine. The clutch is installed in the place of the flywheel. It is rather heavy and serves as a flywheel as well as the clutch. This style was typically used for deep wells.

Around 40 years ago or so, my Dad used to go to the Denmark, Ia. show for a few years. My Dad talked to that owner, he use to refer to this engine as " Big MO " My Dad also told me after a few years of running the engine, that the owner would change some of the parts on the engine with other parts.
