Type in the question and immediately out comes the correct answer! Thank you also for the additional info and the difference between the two models of the Avery. Here's the next one from Daddy's old pics: Is this the Case 110 steamer that he always talked about? That is he at the controls custom threshing up in North Dakota. I also should have expounded more about the smoke box in regards to the 32 hp Case your dad was running. Notice the shortness of the boiler barrel under the smokestack, which is the smoke box of the early 32 that must be either 1908 or 1909. This is that same Mt. Pleasant, Iowa 110 case from 1910. If you click on the photo, you'll see that there is a single rivet row on this lengthened smoke box that came out in 1910. Behind the smoke box, is the "triple rivet, lap seam" boiler barrel. The upper portion of that lap seam boiler laps over the bottom side that is underneath the upper portion and triple rivited. This is the newest 110 hp Case extant. It belongs to the Young family here in Montana. But I believe it now lives at Rollag, Minnesota. Notice the late boilers used after 1910. They were called a "butt-strap" boiler. Notice the rivet rows on the boiler barrel and smokebox. They put a strap plate inside the barrel, and the strap plate on the outside with four rows of rivets on the strap, as the cylindrical part of the boiler barrel butts together. I decided to put this photo in of a long smokebox, round top steam dome boiler being riveted by two men at the J.I. Case factory in Racine, Wisconsin.
