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 will be printing a series of interesting
information from the book ‘Internal Combustion Engines and
Tractors’.

Anyone having tractors will find them very valuable and those
who do have tractors, will find the data interesting. This is the
third contribution, which consists of an illustration and some
tables on oiling the Mogul 10-20.

Mogul 10-20 A 3-Plow Kerosene Burning Tractor

Motor–Simple, low-speed, long-lived and
efficient motor, made in the Mogul factory.

Enclosed Crank Case–Keeps dust, dirt and grit
out of working parts.

Hopper Cooling System-No pump; no radiator
troubles; no small passages to become clogged with sediment or
lime, or to freeze.

High Tension Magneto–Motor starts and runs on
the magneto. No batteries are needed.

Fuel Saving Governor–Regulates the volume of
fuel to the load and also keeps the speed of the motor uniform.

The Oiler That Never Forgets–The force feed
oiler on the Mogul gives the main bearings and working parts the
proper amount of oil. It is always on the job.

Serviceable Transmission–Is enclosed in a
dust-proof case and runs in oil. It is of the selective type with
large, accurately cut gears of hardened steel, fitted with high
grade roller bearings. Two speeds forward and one reverse.

Flexible Drive Chain–Power is transmitted to
the two drive wheels by a strong, flexible, high grade roller
chain-the best known way to transmit power on a tractor. There is
no binding, no getting out of alignment.

Two-Wheel Drive–Both rear wheels are drive
wheels. The pull is straight ahead.

MECHANICAL LUBRICATOR

D

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. This oiler is set to feed the requisite amount of oil and
should require no further adjustment.

H

11/2′ to 2′ of oil should be kept in transmission. In
warm weather use heavy transmission oil or Polarine transmission
oil and in cold weather use a good light oil-

N

Cylinder oil in governor should cover shoe.

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.
