Since mine is up and running now I'm curious as to how many
Are out there on the forum.pics please.
I have a '27 with a belt pulley.
Put a deposit on a '17. Need to pick it up.
I bought one last night. It has a 1914 block. I like the after market exhaust. It will be running soon.
Pretty cool I like the muffler.does yours have gov. On the fan?
Yes it does. It's interesting and should be fun. To bad your so far away. Al
I have one that runs counter clockwise. The fan & crank ratchet are factory made. Dan
All these variations are really neat I am running a buzz saw
With mine are you guy's planing to put yours to work
I have one but it has a generator at the end! It's a Kohler L600 flat head 4.
This one I am told was made by the Thieman Tractor Co. 1920 motor
I have one like Roger's. My dad bought it from a real old guy, at that time, back in the early 70's. Came out of Colfax, Iowa.
Here are a few pics of my power unit. I call it a "Montgomery Wards" "Trail Blazer" I have several ads from 1930 to 1932 Montgomery Wards catalogs showing a unit just like mine. Most all of their equipment and lots of mechanical items and tools, carried the "Trail Blazer" name. It was their trademarked name. Montgomery Wards was like Sears and other catalog houses back then. They made nothing, but had items made for them to their specifications. So mine is probably just like the "Thieman Tractor Co" unit above .?? Maybe even made by them for Montgomery Ward. ?? Mine is missing the hood that attaches to the flat bar brackets. It was just a simple piece of tin that covered the engine. I have saw several engines and also photos of the hood mount brackets so I feel like mine are correct for the kit.
last 2 pics
Hey guy's I like your portable ones with the iron wheels
That looks like a special exhaust manifold on yours
Real cool guy's
James, my exhaust is the exhaust 1/2 of a vaporizer setup, turned upside down. My Montgomery Ward Trail Blazer came as a kit. It included the front wheel and rear wheel assemblies (with axles and castings), the belt pulley assembly, the gas tank and brackets, The sheet metal "rain hood" (mine is missing) and hood mounting brackets (also used for mounting coil box) a governor fan assembly with throttle linkages, and a special radiator mounting bar. All you needed for belt power for the farm was an old model T engine, radiator, and coil box assembly. I hope to get mine running soon....
