Waterloo Boy Oil Tank Shape

Jon Nessel

I've always been under the impression that the square tanks were on the R, and the round ones were on the N. The parts book I have only calls the round tank and lists it for the N. There is no mention of the R oiling tank that I could see.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I thought I had seen some discrepancies in real photos but now realize they were only in old advertisement drawings (attached). Based on the larger ring gear these should be Model N but they also have the square oiler tanks. Also, the old original casting of the Ertl 1/64 scale toy (also attached) Waterloo Boy has the round tanks (Model N) even though the box is marked as a 1914 vintage machine, which was too early for the N.

These were the reason for my question. Thanks again to all.
