Default McCormick Deering Combine

Here are pictures of a combine a guy wants to give to our museum. It is pulled by horses with a Waukesha engine. It has a 12' platform that folds up for transport. It is a model 8 and the engine was built in Oct 1928. I think we will go get it since it was pulled by horses. Does anyone have pictures of one so I could see how the reel and the end over the straw walkers look like?

The operator had to drive the horses, engage and disengage the engine from the machine, raise and lower the platform, and use the brake when needed from where he set.

The little museum in Spiritwood Saskatchewan has one like that but I don't have any pictures. Anyone gote some?
My Dad had a Wood Brothers with the same idea. You rode on a platform above the feeder and drove the horses and controlled your machine from there.
He adapted it for tractor with a crank that he could lower and raise cutting height from the tractor
