Unhappy Twin City 40

These are photos of a Twin City 40 and titan 10-20 parts dug up at Wisner Nebraska in 2001 when they were replacing a bridge. If they had used any care at all it could have been saved.

I agree. As bad as it looks, I hope somebody saved that hulk. Even in a worst case scenario, there are bound to be a few parts that somebody could use.

I had talked to someone that was trying at the time to put a TC together but couldn't find a transmission. He picked up the pile. I think the cylinder head of the 10-20 Titan in the pile is on a running tractor now.

I just bought a late version of the TC 25 engine. Now if I could just find a frame (or if I just hadn't sold the one I had!)

I believe they were probably used for rip-rap. keep the river banks from eroding. unfortunately this happened to a lot of tractors. But it kept them from going to scrap.

Stumbled across this old thread and saw something interesting. If that engine is the original to that TC 40 wreckage shown in the photos in the first post it would make it a very rare tractor....one of the 5 produced by Twin City that had the Model "B" OHV engine installed.

Its an A bottom and a B top, which was standard production for a late 40. No spacer plate on the crankcase.

My mistake...I assumed all overhead valve versions of this engine were the B models. So if these cylinder assemblies are series "A" specific then there were probably kits available from Twin City to update the earlier engines that came originally with the headless style jugs?
