Default Restoration of Rumely # 6153

To avoid hijacking the Rumely 36/40 big engine list thread further, I decided to start a separate thread for the restoration of my 36 Rumely. I let you know when I make updates to the restoration pages.

At the moment I am in the process of getting bids on the gearing. I plan to have all new gears cast and machined. I am wondering if any of the other 36 Rumely owners are in need of any gears. If so, now would be the time to get them made. Send me a PM and I can provide the cost estimates as soon as I get them.

Can't wait to see more of your 36, Jerred. This should put me over the top on getting down to Heritage Park for the first time.

Seems like I heard that Larson machine made the extensions for the one at Rolag? Not sure if you want extensions some day, but maybe they still have the pattern for the hub?

Good evening friends
I finally got around to downloading these photos from my camera. These photos are from a couple of months ago. The collar on the end of the shaft blew the threads off the end of the shaft. Here I remachined the outer pinion gear bearing surface, and undercut the collar diameter and recut the threads. A new collar was machined to match the new threads. I can't wait to see the rest of the engine... Hope everyone is having a great winter.

We have been making slow but sure progress on the Rumely. I have not taken the time to update the web site lately, but I thought I would post the fact that according to the stamp on the boiler she is 100 years old today. The 36 Rumely restoration crew plan to have a little birthday party for her sometime today as we continue the putting her back into operation condition again.

Fantastic! Post 5 shows the exact design as used on the very early Oilpulls. I may need to get new threads cut on my E differential shaft too. More details on gear casting and machining, please.
My E Oilpull will have her or his 100th on 4th January 2012.

Sounds good Jason. My wife Eileen and a couple of my junior helps will be picking up the bull, pinion and intermediate gears tomorrow morning from the foundry in Webster, SD. The engine pinion and spiders just were completed as well. Here is a picture of them.

Well it has been some time since I updated the web site, so over the holidays I took some time and made a few updates. The project was on hold for most of 2012, but we got after it again last month and the restoration crew has made a committment to have it up and running for its 102nd birthday which is coming up on 7/11/2013.
