I found my 1922 10-20 Titan through GEM at Baraboo, Wisconsin about 200 miles east of here. I bagained for it over the phone and hooked my fifth wheel trailer to my pick up and with the help of a young friend, Larry Mandelkow, went after it.

It was all there, but every joint except the front and back wheels and the steering wheel were frozen with rust.

The water tank had about 30 holes in it. We used a wood block and 20 pound mallet to loosen the pistons. Several friends helped me with these problems.

I took the entire tractor apart, scraped and cleaned and then had it steam cleaned. Later I had it sand blasted before reassembling.

I had it pretty well together, when I suffered a heart attack and spent 15 days in the hospital and four months recuperating at home.
