Stationary/Hit-n-Miss engines

Post by TWheaton »

The front engine is a running McCormick Deering LA stationary engine . The middle one is a non running Monitor and the last one is a running Fairbanks Morse. We picked up the cart/trailer at the local junk store. Looks to be an old railway frieght wagon. Had a lot of fun with them so far.This is at my friends place(and green thing in the distance) where did most of the work.

The cart looks nice :beer:

The engines are looking good too :beer:

The "green thing" in that size and larger are pretty good units ;) its the little belt drives in green that I don't have much use for...

Looks like you've had a productive summer :!:

Yeah, I think that is a 1T with a dump bed. I haven't seen it run, but Farrell says it does . I should explain that that is not me in the picture, but my friend Farrell Johnson.
He was a Case IH dealer in Homestead Fl, and has a bunch of neat old stuff, but not a lot of IH stuff. He fell out with
the surviving company's new policies toward their dealers and ending up going green when he started his ranch.
