We have one in a collection in Boise, Idaho. The tractor No. is 2475 and has the Waukesha 4 cylinder Model N and engine No. 32073. Has Kingston carb and Kingston Mag. The engine size is 4-1/2 X 5-3/4 (according to the tag) and it was made 5/16/1918. It starts and runs great and will be getting some more exercise soon.

My question is how much oil shoud it have. I saw on another string here that the sight glass at the tractor aft side of the engine is for oil pressure or splash? I thought I'd put in enough oil so the crank dips lightly into the oil; any input?

I continue to be amazed at the stuff you can track down on this site. Good string!

The lovely young assistant and I own Light Four #986. According to Chuck Wendel it's a 1917. It formerly belonged to a guy from near Fort Worth (he may not want his name mentioned), so a few of you may be familiar with the tractor. I'm not a big numbers guy, and can't be of much help on the academic end, but if you contact me through private messages, I will help all I can. I have the owners/parts manual and several pieces of advertising, As well as a very nice running Huber, unrestored. Will be glad to help......ED

Thanks for the heads up on the pinion gear pattern. I will have to get in touch with you this winter when I start on this project to see if I can somehow get one cast up.

I did get a parts manual and operators manual from the Waukesha Historical Society for the engine. They were very nice people to deal with and very helpfull.

Now I just need to come up with a copy of the parts - operators manual for the tractor itself.

Thanks!!!! Bryan
