Rough and tumble show at kinzer Pa. Went out yesterday. About a dozen or so fords there. Nevin had a couple of interesting tractors there. We talked for a while. Had him climb up on the stilt tractor
made from a 2n wartime model for a photo. He also had a couple of V8's, a 8n crawler and an interesting power steering assist unit on an NAA

I went a few years ago and want to go back. Kevin was not there that year, but I was really impressed by the steamers and one particular early internal combustion tractor that must have been worth a couple million.

Yup The most steam tractors I've ever seen in one place. We are luck to get two or three at our show.

Interesting PS set-up.

Is it an NAA?

Is there a companion cylinder on the right side?

How is the control valve set up?

Neat tractors. All of them.
What is he powering that power steering from? Front mount pump?
Mine is run off the front mount pump. Only one cylinder on mine
but it is mounted more like what you would see on an x01 utility.

Yes Dean it's an NAA. Apparently one of the ford dealers in the area used to make them up. Driven off the front crankshaft pulley to a car pump control by a piece added to steering column. It had only one cylinder on that one side. Tractor use to have a loader on it with an extra wide bucket for moving coal. The tractor was rode hard thru out its live.

It had a side pump that run off a belt to crankshaft pulley. the pump tank almost looked like the early SOS style. Piece was added to steering column to control it. yup, just one cylinder.

Here's Nevin's crawler. The under carriage trans and rear are cletrac/oliver. It's a narrow gauge orchard model. It's extremely tight. I have enough trouble getting in and out of my OC3 and that's 42" wide. The orchard model is like 31" wide. 8n engine. 8n hood and if you look close the fenders are made out of the 2 pieces from a hundred series hood. the ford script is on the inside.

I went out there on Friday. Been at least 12 years since I've been there. I've seen most of these Fords at other places. I would love to talk to someone who has ever done a 60 horse V8 conversion like the one pictured. I like the 60 horse ones because it doesn't need to raise the hood or extend it in anyway. However there is a slight difference where the hood meets the dash. Normally the hood would overlap the dash but I noticed on this one the hood and dash are now flush with each other. Doesn't appear the hood was altered in anyway.

Maybe you could try to look up his phone number Nevin Brubaker Landisville Pa. Worth a shot.
