Default Boring Tractor Corp History Help Needed

I am working on the history of Boring. Any information of any kind and any knowledge of tractors built, shipped and used would be helpful. A news article in February 1919 said that Boring had orders for thirty tractors to be shipped to France. Did they get built and shipped?
I am also searching for a Perfex cellular radiator core because the good one on my Boring tractor got destroyed. That type of radiator core was used on 43% of tractor models in 1920.

Ed, Sometime back the Perfex celluar radiator co was discussed on here. I seem to recall that the tooling for them still does exist. I just don't recall the details, but some co that bought out the original co still has this material. Maybe some one on site can give better details.

Frank, I know what you are referring to, it was a restoration thread where there was debate as to whether to rebuild the Perfex and I think the decision was made to cut the face off to make it look like a Perfex but function with a regular copper core. I don't remember whose it was, maybe on a Heider or RI?

During my rebuilding of the Avery Trackrunner we needed to find an early core. I contacted Brass Works out in California who was able to supply the needed core. When we received it there was a tag indicating it was manufactured by a company in Hants, England. English restorers are very serious about originality so it appears the company there can probably supply original style cores. The only down side is the cost. Good luck Ed B

Do a search for ( Randy Reysen 1917 Lawson Tractor 15-25 project )

I think that's the post you are looking for.

Thanks to all.
My tractor already has a fake look-alike screen in front of a modern core, but I want a Perfex cellular core like the original good one which it had when I first saw it.

There should be some around since such a large percentage of models used that radiator. The core is a good solid design, but some had steel tanks which need attention.

Post the dimensions you need. Maybe someone will have a spare that will work.

Hitmissfan;
Thank you. 1,203,304 is the patent on my tractor. It looks somewhat different in the back as do some earliest advertisement pictures. 1,511,021 is a different low cost two wheel tractor meant to attach existing implements to. It is not a plow tractor. Only one of these was probably made. We'll have an article. I'm doing research and detective work now.

Hi Ed,

Interesting to hear some were sold to France.
Till now I didn't see or hear about one in France but I would love to find out more about them. Do you know who bought them as many US tractors in that period were sold under a different name in France and knowing the import company might help.
Marc.

As I said, the article said that they had orders for 30 from France. No following articles ever mentioned anything about building or shipping them. Any information of Boring tractors ever being in France would support the article.
