  3. Ordinarily I won't contradict Gary's information on early steam engines, but I have to on one of the photos he posted above. That engine is not a Nichols & Shepard, it is a very early Aultman Taylor "Sunflower"steam engine with the bevel gear drive. If you notice over the mans shoulder, up near the flywheel, you can see the bevel gear. You can also see the wheel design is the same as on the engine shown below which is at the Ford Museum and came from "Steam Engine Joe" Rynda. Joe had two of these very early self-propelled engines and the other is still owned by the family which I've had the pleasure of seeing several times.

  5. Had a chance to work on the exhaust some yesterday. I used 2 mandrel bent 45's and connected them in the center and had to open up the hole in the hood to 3.5 inches.

  7. August this year we got word of a local farm auction with equipment we knew the history of sold previously from a firends farm auction. One piece was a WD6 that had been overhauled with a complete new top end and all headwork. We were able to buy it and it came with a new radiator to boot. I needed another radiator as I stole the one off the ODS6 for the OS6. Been doing the engine swap over the last month with help fom my brother. Had to replace the rear main seal due to badly warped retainers. Changed all fluids and filters. Started it for the first time yesterday, rack was stuck closed in the pump and had a bad miss in one cylinder. with a little patients we freed up the rack and a balve adjustment cured the miss. To surprise this is probably the smoothest of the gas start diesels we have. Took it out for my maiden ride yesterday. Still lots of tinkering to do. Have to make the exhaust so I can put the hood on.

  8. Insert OS6 projet in July 2015. I was ready to try and get the engine running when we discovered a starting vave was not moving. Now that the head needed to be pulled The ODS6 and OS6 Traded places and priorities. Pulled the head a month later and found two major cracks, pitted pistons, and a chunck out of one of the liners. Found a good head last year and had all the machine work dine this year. In the interm the injectors and Intake manifold were rebuilt. Since I am in no rush I was exploring all options for pistons and liners.

  9. My hats off to you. You are doing it right. Take everything apart, fix it, clean it, replace all seals and bad bearings then paint it. Even then, things do not always work right. But when you are done, you will have a sense of pride in your accomplishment. You are close to a road test and that will feel terrific when it runs. Just keep going to the shop.

  10. I absolutely hate the PTO lever behind the seat. I have made one for the 1566 so it worked correct up/down as the PTO was swapped out to a dual PTO before we got it and the handle moved the incorrect direction to engage. Our 15 is a true black stripe ,earlier one ,serial plate on the bell housing

  11. I purposely changed my PTO lever to the style designed for a cab. I wouldn't mind having another light in the fender either. Good observation about the PTO lever but IMO it doesn't mean it once had a cab. During the last forty years who knows what all has been done to some of these machines.

  12. Black stripes are dependent on the serial number not any of the other things you mentioned. Look at the parts book and it will tell you at such and such serial number the decal is black stripe and not the earlier model
