'When I purchased the Super MTA the engine had been run without water in the radiator and the engine was locked up, the Torque Amplifier was out. I completely rebuilt the engine with new sleeves, pistons, rings, valves, valve guides, springs, bearings, etc. and rebuilt the Torque Amplifier. I replaced a lot of other parts. I ordered new and used parts from Pennsylvania, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, and Kentucky. I went to tractor wrecking yards for such parts as belt pulley, remote control valve and the special tool box, that was sold by IHC as an extra attachment for the old Farmall H and M tractor to bolt onto the headlight crossbar.

'I am a member of the Smokey Mountain Antique Engine and Tractor Association, and am on the board of directors.' King planned to show his MTA for the first time at the club's show in Pigeon Forge on June 21 and 22.

Maytag Model

'There have been many conversions of the twin cylinder Maytag, and I have done several of them myself,' writes Marvin Frahm of Box 406, Oakland, Illinois 61943. 'Since I have a fruit jar model Maytag, I thought I should have a 'jelly jar' model to go with it. These pictures are the result. I inverted one cylinder, cut the fins off the flywheel, made a new carburetor, and added the 'jelly jar' for the fuel tank. The base is from a gas burner under a very old hot water heater. I also removed the kick starter ratchet and added a little flat pulley.'
