Stumbled across this video of a Model T power unit. There has been some discussion of them here before. Someone commented in the notes that it is a Thieman unit. I have one just like it. Mine is a Montgomery Ward "Trail Blazer" power unit. But Thieman may have been the original maker, as Montgomery Ward just re-badged someone elses units with their "Trail Blazer" trade name. The one in the video has the correct hood, brackets, and gas tank, as well as the notched plate on the low pedal to lock it into low gear. It appears complete except for the governor fan and throttle controls. Just thought someone may want to see a almost complete unit.
Too bad the water pump is leaking.
I have one of those exact wheel chocks (water pumps) on the 19 in my 24.
Every so often, ya gotta make sure the shaft will turn instead of slip the belt.
That thing starts up just like it should. What a sweetheart!
Thieman?... I thought they were more a model A thing. I'd love to see a T powered Thieman. If they exist.
Runs well, Starts so easy. But they didn't show the gears operating.
What a great little unit that still sounds great. I sure wish i could hand crank my T like that with such ease. Thanks for posting Donnie.
Nice!!! One of those pulleys is on my wish list;)
I have one like it that is branded "Atlas" and was sold by Sears. Mine even has the Atlas branded on the radiator shroud where "Ford" is usually branded.
There is a very correct Theiman unit in the museum of speed in Nebraska.
Adam, is it T powered or A powered? There's a few around here but only A powered... :-)
A couple of years ago. I picked up a cart and pulley identical to this one at Chickasha. Hopefully, I'll find time this winter to put my spare motor on it and fabricate a radiator mounting bracket. The thing sure looks cool when it's running.
Duey, Iíve never seen an A motor on a cart with a pulley on it. This is a power unit, not a tractor. I think you are thinking about a Theiman tractor.
