We also have the 24 Minneapolis that Dave Wachter bought up and running. It didn't take much to get this engine going. The engine is at Norm Stevens place at Bellevue, Michigan.

Colin,
Saw the 50 HP Case down in Georgia a few months ago (the one driven by the blonde). It's still in its work clothes, about the way it was in Steam Traction awhile back. I saw (and got to drive a little bit) John Haley's 65 HP Case back at Pontiac, IL, and it was still in its work clothes. Just hard to believe he brought that thing home, got it unstuck, did a hydro and steamed it up a couple of days after getting it home! Why can't I ever fiond anything like that?

Colt,
Here are two photos taken at Wauseon,Ohio in 2005. From L to R 1920 30HP Huber#11275 owned by Doug Langenbach.1922 16HP Russell #17085 owned by Matt Kemler, 1915 65HP Case #32768 owned by John Haley, and a 1914 32-100 HP Port Huron owned by Phil Zuver and Richard Schneipp. These four engines were the stars of show. The third photo was taken at Somerset,Va A1916 28HP Minneapolis #8384 owned by Gil Roberts. All five of these engines are in excellent mechanical shape. ENJOY!

I dont know how i forgot about this original black Rynda engine when i made my post above. its a 20hp Advanced owned by J.T. Jr. Pete Mandt is in the picture. he was working at Larson welding in Fargo last spring and did the work on this engine. it was running for the Minnesota steam meeting in mid April 05. maybe john can give some more details, i cant remember what work was done boiler wise on it. Its neat seeing the engines fixed up and running not painted. i think id be tepmted to leave them original for awhile, maybe just paint the boilers. you do all that hard work of scraping and stuff and they get black anyways:crazy: IM wondering if anyone can confirm if Haleys rear wheels are 22"? they look like they are. Acording to the parts book they went from 20 to 22 after 33099. but his number is older than this. Chuck do you have a B# off this engine? and do you know if the tag was still on it.

Hello Colin. Great picture of the Advance-Rumley. I agree that the engines look better without being repainted. When those engines were unloaded from the railroad,they did not stay pretty for very long. Sure would like to see this engine at Rollag this year. Look forward to seeing you there. Kevin

I think they look like 22 inch wheels too--but we must remember that they could be ordered wider in 2 inch increments for a bit more money. A 1914, 65 near here (#31270) has 24 inch drivers, and it should have 20s as standard. I can not put my hands on my notes from Rynda's right now, so not sure of the boiler number right now-- but am quite sure that one had no tag--I am not sure how they came up with that number???

Here are two photos of John Haley’s 65 HP Case at Wauseon, OH. I believe I gave the incorrect serial number in my last post. It is a fine engine. I can’t tell if it has 20” or 22” wheels. Sorry for the mix-up. I told John “You sure did a nice job restoring your 65”. HA!

One more that is up and running is the Ericson Families 20? HP Woods Brothers. it is ALSO at the Central States Threshermans Reunion in Pontiac, IL. I ran this engine for a little bit, and it also runs well.

This is John Tysse Jr.'s Advance Rumely from Rynda's sale. It was run and shown at the Divide County Threshing show at Crosby, ND. Maybe John can ad some information to this post.

Another Rynda engine up and running is the 24 Port Huron, purchased by John Malsch of Pell Lake, WI. He has taken it to the Sycamore Show and to Freeport. Governors' not quite right yet, but it will be a horse when he gets done.

It can be seen at numerous websites that have pictures of the Sycamore Show's 50th anniversary - Mark Corson's site, and Steve Barr's as well.

Well, since I asked the question about the 24 Port, here was the answer....Any more of the engines back in steam?

Thanks
