Default Boring Tractor with Waukesha Engine

I am restoring a 1921 Boring tractor. It has not run since 1942 + or - a few years, been sitting outside for 70 years so its in rough shape. I am looking for heads for the Waukesha engine it is a model CU4R dated apr 9, 1921. It is 4 3/8 bore and 5 3/4 stroke. If anyone knows where I can find heads please let me know. THANKS

Happy to report that the Boring tractor that Butch Rafferty and friends, have been restoring over the past several months, made it's tractor show debut recently. Butch restored it on behalf of the tractors owner, a tractor that has been in the same family since new. Had to jump thru several hurdles to accomplish the task, but the results speak for themselves. The Boring was built in Rockford, Il. not far from the Emerson Brantingham plant. In fact, the mounted two bottom plow is EB as is the fuel tank. It has a Waukesha CU motor and a 12-24 rating. A unique feature is that the drive wheels are adjustable in width, and the right wheel can be lowered so the tractor will ride level while plowing. Doesn't look like a real fun and comfortable ride tho. Congrats Butch.

If anyone is interested, this Boring tractor is listed for sale on Aumann's website on an 'online only' auction on November 1st 2012 which is only a couple weeks away.

As soon as I found out about it, I figured I'd do a search on the threads I remembered reading before and let people know about it. Since I found two threads in two different forums, I figured I'd post it in both of them for better coverage.
