Well it was a tough start on Friday after work going to Jacktown. Only had a few near misses with the pick up and trailer loaded, one of which almost had me as a loaded tandem full of stone pulled right out in front of me on the way. With all the brakes locked up I somehow squeaked around him as the oh-sh-- kicked in . Then this flat bed trailer loaded with steel decided he had room to "SQUEZE" in front of me as we approached a red light doing about 20MPH. Didn't have to lock them up, but it was close. Then.... boy, I hate driving for other people, but that's what defensive driving is all about. I made it, got set up and then it started raining about 4:00pm and rained all night . Saturday after things dried out and warmed up a bit was a "GREAT" day. Rob came by and asked if I could speed up my 4HP IHC He timed it at 54 RPM . I just said it's retired . After a few 's, I left the show grounds at 2:45am for the trip home to avoid all the driving on the road. Made it home without incident. Now to unload all that stuff and put things away . Paul in NJ, just trying to have fun on the way through.

Hey Paul,I know where there's a set of runnin gear like that under the photo you just posted,, about 30" dia, front and rear, axels,, whole thing,,, sitting in a junk yard up by Red Bank.. Was going to ask what he wanted for them but too big for any thing I have!!Besides if I bring anything else home Momma will kick me out..If yer innerested let me know and I'll ask him what he want's... I've know him for a few years so he'll let em go to me cheaper than if a stranger call's...

Gene in NJ still waiting for the fun to start...

Had a great weekend at the Jacktown show. Didn't buy any engines but did get some great food and apple dumplings Also managed to purchase a few odds and ends that I needed.

The photo shown is of Lloyd Osmun's kersene Hercules engine which is quite unique. This is a thottle govern engine, but with the flip of a lever becomes a hit & miss Be sure to check out the pics [about 30] at the link below and make sure all you Quincy engines collectors see the Quincy tractor. Heard a interesting story behind the tractor but don't think the owner would appreciate it being public knowledge

Sorry Mike, I was trying to keep up with new things instead of showing the same all the time. Maybe a new engine will insure a picture next year
