Wendel's Catalog of Farm Tractors shows the 18-36 having a horizontally opposed four with 5 1/2" x 6" bore and stroke and weighed 6000 lbs. It was produced in 1919 and remained in production until the end of operations in 1927.
While we're discussing Pioneer, I'm aware of a few examples of the 30, but are there any of the six cylinder Pioneer 45-90 models still in existence?

Are there any actual pictures or even a catolg pic of a 45? It would be fun to see one. Someplace it says 9' rear wheels. The one pic that is referenced from time to time as a 45 I think is really a 30. I would think a 45 would be noticeably different since it would be 18 to 24" wider.

Wish I remembered this tractor at Freeport but I didn't start attending until 1983 or so. Incidentally looks like a nice Gibson in the background as well. Thanks for posting my friend.

A lot of people nowadays! Smokstak has shown that there isn't much that is considered too far gone.

For the record the rear tires are about 60 1/2" in diameter and have an 18" face.
I'm going to take a shot at getting some engine interior pics and another detail I noticed.
I'll update soon.......

Correct Craig.

It's Lloyd Trude's old 1920 18-36 Pioneer.

His Russell Steam Engine was a 1926 25-75

Our Club's Sawmill also came from Lloyd.

I've posted these pictures before on the Stephenson County Antique Engine Club's Facebook page. . . https://www.facebook.com/StephensonC...queEngineClub/

If possible I'd like to share the color shots from this thread on there but figure I should ask before I do. It would be Great to see it back at Freeport sometime.
