    I'm not sure exactly what or if that is what it was. I just remember that they had a short long on it turning into a blade that peeled a thin sheet of wood off it as the log rotated

    I remember going to this show once or twice about 20 years ago. It has a little bit of everything that is for sure and do a lot of working demonstrations. Do they still do the veneer mill?

    this looks like a winch

    Add a comment to oil field maintenance , what missing is the derick and weight on front to hold the H from coming over. This a not too common set up , a small contractor. Big contractors used Cats , heavy duty . That h I personally don’t think it would hold up under the loads ,just my opinion , that y you don’t see many .

    My friend in the business( Small)  ,they had 8 Fordsons with winch’s ,they would use moving from wells they maintained. 
    where I got my information.

    Yeah that’s normal. Better than having no spares! We have several exhaust valves and cylinder heads which are a more common failure but ships are required to maintain stock of “critical spares” and a liner and piston is on that list. Usually these engines are in a rotation of every three years change/inspect pistons and liners and we usually do two units per year to make that happen. It’s a lot of space and weight to carry a full set also. These slow speed engines usually give plenty of warning and will run near beat to death... you can also run With non functional units, piston removed even. 

    Thanks for the explanation ! Help a landlover !

  6. Had a good time at the show today in Seagertown. Got both the Farmall C and the Fordson into the parade . I had to run hard to get Fordson started and into the parade, last year because I wasn’t slow getting the C into position .C was first down the parade route. 
    They were featured John Deere but the other makes we’re well represented also .
    linked in some photos for your edification and amusement. Didn’t take as many photos as movies .A lot to do and see. Take a few more tomorrow.

    Back on a big ship. 10,000hp+ 6cyl. Red line is 105rpm. That’s a spare piston and liner hanging in the one pic. 



    That would concern me ! The mfg. ( someone of unknown origin ) would put one spare piston on board . You’re not confident in your engine ,you put a spare piston to  change out at sea . What about the other five ?

    This common procedure?

    Set me straight on this ?

    Pretty sure normal bore is 4”

    edit, the N Fordson’s were 4 1/8” I believe...

    The one that came out of mine were 4.0375 oversized from rebuild engine exchange possibly. Reason I asked . I think I got one if you need it but I’m sure I wouldn’t use it , up to you 

    yep n we’re 4 1/8 

    I could not find pistons ,any ,a year of spun around , contact my engine builder ,he went to Sue at wiseco in Mentor. Got them made .08 over to match clean up. Vroom! , 2 years wasted , thunder !
    Got .08 Hastings rings from Chevy v8 in it . I have 4 sets of rings come to think of it ,you can have if you need them if you go this route . V8 rings were 40 bucks cheaper than 4 cylinders . Dah we went that way. Reason I got four sets extra.

    the weeds I get into make me sneeze !

    Ahhh think those have been posted before but the front one is a 1925 that my uncles restored in the early 90’s. The other is a 1926 that’s in nice shape and has a good rust patina. The 25 runs but could use an engine freshen, the 26 was bought with the pistons in a box. Don’t see any major issues with the engine. Got rings and misc parts for it to run some day. Planning on leaving it a patina tractor. 

    4.0375 pistons?
