Through the courtesy of Lewis H. Cline, 603 Fremont St., Middleville, Michigan 49333, and with the kind permission of International Harvester Company, 401 North Michigan Ave., Chicago, Illinois 60611, we are printing a series of interesting information from the book Internal Combustion Engines and Tractors.

Anyone having tractors will find these articles very valuable and those who do not have tractors will find them interesting. This is the fourth contribution with more information on oiling the Titan 10-20.

TITAN 10-20 - A Twin-Cylinder

Valve-in-Head Kerosene Tractor

MOTOR -- A twin cylinder valve-in-head kerosene-burning motor that is silent, smooth running, and a giant for power.

MIXER -- Uses without change of parts gasoline, benzine, naphtha, kerosene and distillate down to 39° Baume. Valve, after being opened, automatically supplies water in proportion to the amount of fuel being consumed.

GOVERNOR - A flyball throttling governor controls the amount of fuel entering the cylinders in proportion to the load.

IGNITION -- A high tension magneto furnishes current for jump spark ignition. No batteries needed.

LUBRICATION - A six-feed mechanical oiler keeps essential parts well oiled. Transmission is lubricated by an oil bath.

COOLING - Motor is cooled by water circulating from a tank having a capacity of 40 gallons.

TRANSMISSION - A spur gear, selective type transmission, transmits power from engine to final chain drive. Gears run in oil.

CHAIN DRIVE - Double chain drive to rear wheels.

STEERING - The steering gear is of the automobile type with wheel convenient to driver. Worm and gear completely enclosed.

FOUR WHEELS - Stands squarely on four wheels, two large, broad-faced drive wheels for traction and two front wheels to make it steer easily.

Fill with a good grade of heavy gas engine cylinder oil. Turn the crank on the mechanical oiler 40 to 50 times when starting the engine. '1' - Adjust to feed not less than 7 cubic centimeters to each piston (25 to 30 drops per minute). '2' - Feed not less than 4 cubic centimeters to each main bearing (12 to 14 drops per minute). '3' - Feed not less than 4 cubic centimeters to each crank pin oil ring (12 to 14 drops per minute).

C

See magneto instruction book. Keep enough good lubricating oil in the transmission gear case to cover the teeth of the smaller compound gear. About three gallons will be sufficient and it may be poured in through filter pipe in the hand hole cover at the front end of the gear casing. Oil should be kept about even with the edge of the hand hole opening. IMPORTANT --  In cool or cold weather the oil in lubricator tank must be warmed, as it will not flow readily unless of the right temperature.
