Just out of curiosity, can anyone confirm if Eagle stamped their serial numbers to the tractor frame at all? or was it just the engine?

Here is a couple more photos of the Schley tractor in Clintonville.

I have never seen a serial number stamped on an Eagle, other then on the serial number plate. That does not mean it has not been done in some cases? It would pay to look around.
On my 20-40, when you take the crankcase cover off, there is a date stamped in the casting near where the lubricator sits. That dates coincides well with other information I have for a building date.
Tractors sold by Waterloo Manufacturing often had numbers stamped in the frame, often on the top of the rail closer to the rad. These will usually have R or T followed by 3 numbers. Those relate to rebuilds at Waterloo.

That is one nice looking Eagle Andy.As for the serial number being stamped on the frame that might have been just something done early or a carry over from the model G?

Hey Andy.........maybe you or someone else knows what happened to the 16-30 (F?) chain steer John Schroeder of Waupaca had?
I know it had been fitted with a Pickering governor.
We need to meet some time!.......

I do not know of that one. The schley Eagle is the only one I personally know of that was refurbished, but that was done by the Eagle company and then resold to the Schley family.
Warren Werth has one of the most up to date records of eagles and their locations. He might know where it ended up.

G, could this be same tractor do you think (see photo below)? Several of the features look identical. I seem to remember I couldn't find a serial plate on it though.

Do you have any serial no./year info for the 16-30 H that is mentioned at the Milton museum? Presumably this is the Country Heritage Park, but didn't realise they had more than one Eagle.

Best wishes

David,
That does look to be the same tractor.
I will look for data on the 16-30 when I have a chance.
Cheers.

Although Eagles look ugly with Roof's/Canopy's they should have left the roof on that one of Howes it looked better with the roof then without it

Came across this info/photo of an Eagle described as a "45hp", but the serial number (1483) seems too low. Could this perhaps have been a rebuilt 20-40?

David,
Roger's Eagle. no. 1483, was sold new in Western Canada. It first shows up in Waterloo Ontario records on July 3, 1937. It was sold to William Ferguson of Pelee Island, Ontario. It has a Waterloo rebuilt number so must have been converted to 45 hp then. It was a 20-40 Improved originally.
It would be a 1926, I think. The records suggest there were a few flat cars of those 20-40s sent to Portage la Prairie from that high-1400 serial number group.
Regarding the museum's 16-30, look at Post #124.

I have been getting requests for copies of the Eagle book. Does anyone have spare copies laying around they would like to part with? I need one for a museum, and another for an individual, who would really like to have them.
Thanks.

I found the book on Farm Collector available as an e-book. You have to phone in as it is not listed, but they do have it as I just purchased and downloaded it. Some good info in it.

Do the books still come autographed by the author? or is that extra now?
