Tractor pull

Post by Wildcat445 on Sat Mar 08, 2014 4:32 pm

I went to the annual tractor pull and putt-putt engine show held annually in Apache Junction, AZ. There was actually a radio there in the silent auction. It was a 1932 Silvertone console, working and "restored". The finish was nice, but not near right. All the toners had been washed off, but I am not a big fan of toner, so that was not objectionalble. It had 11 tubes, with P-P 45 output tubes. Nice working set. The starting bid was at $150, which I thought was plenty. They had not got a bid on it. There were some Maytag washing machine motors there, and they were running. There was probably 200 old putt-putt engines there, of all kinds and sizes, all running. I know MEZLAW likes Maytag motors, so I may send him some pics. It was a nice day, and it was hard to believe that there was that many tractors and old engines in AZ.

In this part of the country we have "lawn parties" in the month of June at most of the volunteer fire dept. There are a lot of old tractors and all types of old gas engines on display.

Speaking of old motors a few years ago we went to tractor supply here and they had a tractor show in the parking lot. They also had a few of the old small motors about the size on a lawnmower motor. One guy had this really neat old motor setup. He had restored a old maytag like gas motor from probably the teens or 20s. He had a frame with wheels that it was mounted on and a press like setup. With it running there was a chute he dropped cans into and as the motor was running it was attached to a piston like rod that spun similar to the rods on a old steam engine train. As it went back and forth it crushed a can at a time. A really neat little setup for events like this.

Old tractor / stationary engine shows are very popular where I live. Here are some photos and videos from a few years ago I took.

"potato, potato, potato" oh wait, that's a Harley engine Smile
