Ed Clarke, 67 Rockland Ave., Larchmont, NY 10538, purchased this Major engine, manufactured by the Detroit Gas Engine and Machinery Co., in the summer of 1990 at a flea market in Maine. The engine, serial #6152, is a 1 HP.

Thus the I.H.C engineers could use a proven engine and
concentrate on the traction port of the tractor. The tractor has
one gear forward and a friction reverse. This is accomplished by
pulling a metal pulley on the reverse shaft against a fiber pulley
on the crank shaft. This reverses the counter shaft and the tractor
backs up. The tractor runs great and can be seen at the Black Hills
Steam and Gas Threshing Bee, Sturgis, South Dakota on the third
weekend in August yearly.

The internal parts are all in good working order, and no parts
were missing. The results of 125 hours of filing, sanding,
polishing and painting can be seen in the photos. Mr. Clarke would
love to hear from anyone having any information on the history of
his engine.
