In the past on the smokstak it was stated that Bob Anderson had a 40 boiler.

Great find! That's a serious-sized machine. Looks about the size of the Reeves 40 - close?

Awesome that it's coming back to life.

Nice picture montage of the trip out. was it stuck very much?
Mike, here's a few dimensions to give you an idea of size. this engines rear wheels are 76 x 30"+10, fronts 46x12? 40 Reeves, 110 Case and 36 Rumely have 84" high rear wheels. The 40s barrel is 40", 110 is 38, and this machine is 36" I believe their actual boiler hp is about 30hp.

It has been discussed in other Gaar Scott threads here, but I believe that the 25HP double simple Gaar Scott uses the same boiler.

Frank,

Isn't it virtually the same boiler with different bracket mounts for the larger motor and a more forward 'A' frame support bracket on the clutch side???? What say ye Mike????

Lawrence,
The wheels are the same as the 25hp, the boiler is pretty much the same dimmension, so I think they'd be pretty comparable, sitting side by side with a 25hp DRM engine. The rear tank, coal bunker, coal chute, platform and crowsnest with steering wheel make the 40hp much more imposing. Is the boiler hp (i.e., heating surface) Colin mentioned the reason these were re-rated at the international border as a 33hp when imported?

Gary,

Didnt the re-rating of those 40hp engines have to do with a tax for certain sized hp over XX??? I vaguely recall this being discussed some two years or so back.

The 40hp GaarScott wheels are the same diameter...wider footprint though. Can't wait to see her in person tomorrow. We should be on the road by mid-afternoon and down there just before supper time. I think it will be a late supper for us.

Lawrence, you are right about the wheel widths. The diameters are the same.

Now... Since I'm extra officially a senior citizen and even packing a Medicare card... I'm having a senior moment, I guess?

I remember Colin saying the 110 Case weight was under stated so the tax would be less. I don't remember that about the 40hp (33hp) Gaar Scott. (And I had oatmeal and applesauce with V-8 Juice for breakfast.)

Somebody else will have to answer that question, Lawrence. I don't have the extra time to go researching that, now that this is "he11 week" here at the school district.

Oh... Please give the old girl (the Gaar Scott) a hug for me! Actually give the young girl (Kara) a hug for me too! Give Nicholas one too. I'm proud of him plowing in those videos!
Gary
