25/2/3 IHC 6 hp M Engine Q. I have a 6 hp
McCormick-Deering, s/n C28754 of 1923 vintage. The engine is on the
original cart. I would like to know if the cart is the same color
as the engine, or different. Also if there is any decal on the
cart. I would also like to have either the plans or a photo of the
seat/battery box which was on the front of the cart. This engine
originally belonged to my wife's great grandfather, so there is
a family sentiment in getting it running and restored again. Any
help will be appreciated. Richard W. Hankel, RR 1, Box J64,
York, NE 68467.
A. We believe that the paint color was the same
dull green all the way through, engine, trucks, and all. We also
doubt that any decals were used on the trucks, but for display
purposes at least, one photo shows the word 'INTERNATIONAL'
painted on the sills. The tool box was a wood or metal box the
width of the sills, and mounted between the flywheels and the seat.
The seat was of pressed steel and mounted on a steel stem similar
to that used on mowers, binders, and the like.
25/2/4 Case VAS Tractor Q. I have recently
purchased a 1952 Case VAS tractor. It is distinguished from other
VA series tractors by its off'set engine, similar to the
Farmall A and Cub.
In literature searches at the Ontario Agricultural Museum , I
have been unable to find any references to this tractor in Case
advertising material or manuals. The only description I have seen
is in the 1954 and 1955 Red Book. Even the Case Heritage
Foundation's own publication, when listing the Case tractor
serial numbers, neglected to mention the VAS model. Can anyone
explain what has happened? Any assistance would be much
appreciated, as there are some minor non-essential details missing.
Any communication with other VAS owners would be greatly
appreciated. Cliff T. Jones, RR 2, St. George, Ontario NOE 1N0
A. Our current research on a J. I. Case book is
not yet organized to the point where we have all our material
sorted by specific models, therefore we can't be of much help
in this instance. We will be most interested in hearing from other
VAS owners however, or for that matter, anyone with information on
these elusive models.
25/2/5 Ingeco Engine Q. I recently acquired an
Ingeco engine, similar to the one shown on page 243 of American Gas
Engines. It is 1 1/2 hp, Type AJ, s/n 5803. At present it has a
spark plug for ignition, and is equipped with a Briggs &
Stratton carburetor. First I would like to know about when it was
built, and the proper color. Also, I would like to get in touch
with someone having one of these engines so that I can duplicate
the missing carburetor and ignition parts. Any help will be
appreciated. Donald E. Bowen, 12665 Sundance, San Diego, CA
