HTN 107 - Current project for Sandstone Estates being carried out by Chris Wilson at LionsRiver, KZN

13th June 2006

Current project for Sandstone Estates being carried out by Chris Wilson at LionsRiver, KZN, is this unusual ex SA Air Force aircraft tug. Based on a Fordson Super Major tractor, it has a Brockhurst hydraulic transmission in place of the normal Fordson gearbox. The front axle has been specially lowered, and the rear axle modified to accept 9.00-20 truck tyres. The superstructure, which appears to have been built by a company in Johannesburg, is extremely substantial and incorporates ballast over the rear axle presumably to increase traction.

The Ford Motor Company serial number, 31168, was issued in the Ford plant at Port Elizabeth, indicating that this is very much a South African modification.

Also in line for attention at LionsRiver is this Allis Chalmers model B, with side mower. While it has been cosmetically restored, it requires work to the cooling system, fuel and electrical to get it into good working order.

All vintage machinery at Sandstone is expected to perform in the field from time to time, and this little tractor, with it’s attatched mower, will be particularly useful.
This tractor, ser no. 18154, is an American built unit, as revealed by it’s arched front axle, unlike a similar model B in the collection which was built in Britain and has a straight front axle. It is also unusual being on steel.

Ford V8 pick up, approx 1950. This unit, which was aquired a number of years ago from the late Dennis Petersen at Frere KZN in a very original condition, is being made ready to undertake a trip to Kenya later this year. Despite it’s excellent outward appearance, it does show evidence of a hard life. A blocked radiator had led to blown head gaskets, and the gear box lay shaft bearings had collapsed. However this and many other defects have been rectified, and the old Ford has passed it’s roadworthy. The original interior is largely untouched except that time and rats had taken their toll on the seat and roof lining, which have been sympathetically replaced to blend in with the original. (Left).

100-0485 One of Sandstone Heritage’s recent acquisitions; an AEC Matador lorry. This remarkable old vehicle was in commercial service until a few years ago, before being deemed just too slow on today’s roads. Originally fitted with a 9.6 litre AEC engine it has subsequently been fitted with a similar size Leyland power plant of the same vintage. This is a very acceptable substitute, having very similar characteristics.
Colin Heally from Kloof, KZN, bought it subsequently and used it for transporting his steam roller to shows. It has a heavy duty winch driven from the engine, which made it ideal for this purpose.
Chris Wilson drove down to Kloof to learn all about it, then loaded his vehicle on it & drove it back to LionsRiver. Top speed on the highway was about 60 km/h – but on the notorious Town Hill the old girl showed her true worth, zipping effortlessly past modern trucks slogging their way up the hill! Such is the value of old fashioned long stroke torque!

100-0359/60/61 Sandstone is fortunate in having 2 Waterloo Boy tractors. Both were imported in 1997 from Oscar’s Dreamland, Billings Montana USA. Although both were complete substantial work was required to get them to run reliably.
Shown here is the earlier chain steer version of the model N, unfortunately no serial number exists, but it probably dates from 1918. Similar to the “R” which preceded it ,the N has a 2 forward speed gearbox as opposed to the single speed R.
Waterloo Boy tractors & engines were built by the Waterloo Gas engine company at Waterloo, Iowa. They were bought out by John Deere in 1917. They featured a 2cyl horizontal engine design which lasted with John Deere until 1960.

100-0155/0157 Sandstone’s other Waterloo Boy, ser no 30099, was constructed in 1924, one of the last to be built. It has the later automotive type steering. It is likely that it shared factory floor space with the first batch of John Deere’s famous Model D’s, as it is known that the two models were produced simultaneously for a while.
Shown here awaiting collection from LionsRiver after restoration.100-0160 John Deere model B ser no 206022, stripped for quotation. Note condition of panels. The B remains Deere’s most popular model – more B’s were produced than any other model to date. It was in production from 1935 to 1952. This one was produced in 1947.

100-0209 The frame has been repaired & refitted, the cylinder block honed & replaced, head & valves overhauled & new rings fitted. The whole tractor has been prepared & primed and re-assembly continues.

100-0492 - 206022 back at Hoekfontein, having performed well pulling trailers for tour groups.

100-0166 - JD 730D, stripped for quotation. This unit was in better than average condition, considering most 730 diesels were worked to death due to their overall usefulness. Work revolved around repairing the donkey starting engine, electrical, transmission, brakes, clutch, water pump etc.

The 30 series were the last of the 2 cylinder tractors from John Deere, representing some 40 years of development from the Waterloo Boy. Despite the archaic engine layout, these diesels were thoroughly modern tractors with power steering, 3pt hitch with draft control, live hydraulics & Independent PTO. They were also the most economical in terms of diesel consumption per horsepower, a record held until the ‘80’s. This one, ser no 7321133, was built in 1959.
So successful was the design that it continued to be built in Argentina until 1970.

HTN 106 - Sandstone's three heavyweights

13th June 2006

The recent Cosmos Festival was an opportunity for us to bring out our real heavyweights. Each of the machines featured below is a classic in its own category. The Emerson Brantingham Big 4-30 was voted the most valuable
vintage tractor of North American origin in a recent survey. The Rumeley Oil Pull is reverred as the most successful of all the Prairie tractors, and in terms of road steam the Fowler B5 Road Locomotive sits right at the top of the pile. Sandstone is fortunate to have machines of this calibre and to be associated with men who restore and operate them.

Some of the more interesting sights at Sandstone are the quiet ones. Here is a tractor slumbering next to the entrance gate at Sandstone Estates. It was obviously spotted by a visitor who passed that way recently and won a photographic competition as a result. Beeld Newspaper, Tuesday, 25 April 2006

HTN 95 - Sandstone cooperates with Western Cape Enthusiasts to restore McCormick threshing box and Mitchell baler

5th June 2006

In January 2001, part of the historic Elgin Valley farm called De Hoop was sold at auction. Although I pass this farm often in the course of my work and the farm is easily visible from the approach road from the North, somehow I had never noticed a large metal object looking very much like a threshing machine!
Maybe a tree had been cut down? With a new owner wishing to clean up his yard, there was no time lost for Philip Gray-Taylor and I, both committed collectors of Stationary Engines and Farm & Horticultural Equipment to make an appointment to view it and perhaps make a deal which would keep it out of the hands of the Scrap Dealers! There was also an Australian-made Mitchell stationary baler standing next to it.

A deal was struck, and the following story describes how they was brought to my workshop, written as the story progressed:

I made a deal yesterday with the new owner of the farm where the McCormick 'blikbak' and Mitchell baler are standing. So the baler is now mine, and the blikbak is 50/50 with Philip, who shares the Ransomes 10 NHP steam portable with me.

I managed to get three of the four wheels off the baler, the 4th will definitely need a chain saw, as a tree which has since died, has grown up between the wheel and chassis, and then over the wheel. I was using a high lift jack and hoped that the root may have rotted away underground and pull out. No way! I had managed to get hold of 4 old 600/16 tyres recently, and will have them fitted, and then hopefully, just tow her away. How old were these old balers? What is amazing is the decals are almost like new, although the paint is almost gone, and there is some rust, caused by the seed pods of the tree (a gum) which tried to kill the baler, before the baler choked it to death!

It looks as if the colours were red, with yellow wheels.

I went back to the baler this evening and put on the three wheels which I had had the old 600/16's put on to. (they are getting scarce!). I had to lift the one side higher than it was when I took off the flat tyre, and as I lifted it, I heard a crack underground...a root breaking! some more,and more cracks. Then I realised I had the Hi-lift on one of the roots, and moved to another place, with more joy. I put that wheel on, and put a block under it, lowered it, and went to the side with the tree. Also feeling around, and placing the jack between the roots, I have now managed to pull the whole root out! OK, you get roots and roots, but this is a ROOT! I still can't get the wheel off, though, and the thing is still standing on the jack. I will just have to take a photo, before I start cutting!

Paid another visit this evening to the Mitchell. Managed to saw the piece that was growing down over the top of the wheel, and then thought I'd get lucky and take the split pin out of the hub and pull the whole wheel & hub off. Fat chance, even with the hi lift between the chassis and the wheel. The tree has grown right over the lip of the rim. Then I thought I might still be able to get at the heads of the bolts. (it doesn't have studs, just loose nuts & bolts. Got 3 off, but the tree has filled up the entire space between the chassis and the inside of the rim, and there's no way that you can get at the heads. I managed to put the hi lift between two legs of the tree, and broke one off at the root, but that still didn't expose anything more. Now, I think I'll have to disconnect the axle from the chassis (it hinges at one point in the middle, to be able to traverse very uneven ground), and lift the machine up, and try to move it away, and deal with the axle on its own. I took some shots.


The lower picture shows the hi-lift jack forcing the two limbs of the dead tree apart.

Back at the workshop:

I tried again to get the wheel off the baler. Didn't have a heavy enough hammer for the pin in the axle. I'm sure it will go better from there on. I have been greasing every time I go, and each hub has taken 200 pumps of grease! I managed to free off the input shaft and the angle drive box (which I'm not planning to use, but it might be handy some time)............

With much sweat, I managed to get the wheel off the Mitchell baler today. This morning, I tried to saw more through the trunk, but it was too big for the bow saw. As I thought, I would have to take the axle off. The two trailing arms were no problem, but the pivot pin was stuck, so I went back to the thing after doing another job in that area this afternoon, with a big hammer, and managed to get the pin to move, but it belled out. So I tried the other way, but couldn't get at it, and bearing in mind I didn't know how to deal with the machine once the pin was out, I decided to tip the machine on its side. 2 goes with the hi-lift, and an unbelievable tilt, and she flopped gently onto her side.

This meant that I could get a good swing at the pin, but in the process, that end belled out too. Bear in mind that the whole root and trunk had also tipped over with the machine, and was now free to rotate a bit, (about 90 deg) With a sweat, so I could swing it this way and that, to get at the end of the pin. I then had to saw through the section of the pin sticking out, and knock the pin back the other way. Of course, the punch I was using got stuck in the hole, and that was a whole process to get out!

Once the pin was out, the wheel at the bottom got trapped, and the whole machine had to be lifted up again. Once the axle was off, it was a question of the hi-lift in exactly the right place, to wrench the axle out of the wood and free the wheel. Phew!
There is a perfect indentation of three quarters of the inside of the wheel dish in the dead wood!

The Mitchell has since been given to Emile Cronje of Brakfontein, who must by now be world renowned for his collection of mostly restored grain harvesting equipment, which he showcases once a year on his farm between Heidelberg (Cape) and Riversdale. The show is usually held early in December.

Then the Threshing Machine, or Blikbak as we call it. In NZ it would be called a 'Tin Mill'.

The 'blikbak' is safely at the workshop! I rocked it out of its resting place with the Mercedes Benz Sprinter service-van and reinforced towbar, and then found that the slope out of the farm was too much for the van. I let it roll back, but as you know, drawbar things are not easy to reverse! The whole caboodle landed up crossways across the new owner of the farm's drive way!

Switch to plan B. I had to go home for lunch past a friendly customer, and borrowed a biggish (for us) 4wd tractor. (One of my own Fendt 203V vineyard tractors would have been pushed dangerously downhill, even if it had been able to get up!) It is 14km from the farm to my workshop, 1⁄2 on gravel, 1⁄2 on tar. The gravel section was really slow, whereas on the tar section I managed at a fair lick of speed, watching all the time that the left rear wheel didn't go over the edge off the tar. The right rear wheel needs a visit to the bicycle shop, for the spokes to be tuned, it wobbles like mad, and makes the whole machine shake! But the worst noise and shaking came from the feed chute, folded down, right behind me. At one stage Philip and Ryan were trailing me, picking up fallen-off parts and a pulley. One other pulley had fallen off on the farm already. It shows nothing is seized up! Time for the trip, about 13⁄4 hrs. What a pleasure to drive the unencumbered tractor back! (a Lamborghini) (about 3⁄4 hrs).

I felt I needed to pay for the use of the tractor, besides filling the fuel tank, so luckily found the oil pressure sender unit not working when I put it away. (It had been handed over to me running, otherwise I would have noticed). So I was able to donate and fit the unit as, it being similar to a SAME, I travel around with spares.

Now it's at the workshop, I can see how big it is, and how Derick Kleynhans can say it can be towed behind a bakkie (once fitted with rubber tyres) I just don't know. It really pushed me downhill!

One interesting thing was inspecting the bushes of the pulleys which came off.....100%!

Thinking back to the collection and inspection of this machine..... I have no idea when grain was last planted in this fruit growing area, still less when last it would have been threshed with a stationary Threshing Machine. There was no sign of a shed on the farm which could have housed this big machine, so we can assume, I think, that it has been outside all along. Yet apart from superficial rust on the angle-iron framework and adjusting threads, no single axle was stuck, all the fan shafts turned, shakers shook, and augers turned.

We didn't have undercover space for it either, so our 'preservation' for the last 51⁄2 years has amounted to greasing all the nipples profusely and raising the steel wheels off the ground to on to lorry rims, to prevent them from rusting.

Some time ago, I had a visit from oom Jannie du Toit, from Gordon's Bay, over the mountain. Everyone knows oom Jannie is the last word when it comes to McCormick Deering. I saw him walk several times around the machine and asked him why he was so interested. He replied that he used to contract with exactly such a machine! When asked whether he saw his way clear to restoring this one, he said "Yes" straightaway! A word with Philip, and he agreed that oom Jannie would be just the right person to take on the challenge.

However, logistics, not keenness, have prevented him from making a start, but he obviously hadn't forgotten the offer. So it came as no surprise to get a call from Sandstone Heritage Trust, to say that he had asked them to assist. Oom Jannie is behind most of the splendid collection of International, McCormick Deering and Farmall tractors and implements already in the Sandstone Collection.

We are looking forward to news of this machine's return to pristine running order!

HTN 89 - Oil pull transport

12th May 2006

Every show at Sandstone Estates attracts different types of machines, invariably loaded onto big trucks. Here is our Rumely Oil Pull 30-60E Heavyweight arriving with a friend, a 1933 Ford V8 truck which is completely original. Both of these came from Hogsville where the Rumely has recently been cosmetically upgraded by Charles Viljoen.

1907-1969
Deutz can trace its history to the Nikolaus Otto, Gottleib Daimler, and the first internal combustion engines. Agricultural machinery production began in 1907. Deutz tractors were very popular in western Europe after World War II. Farmers liked the simple, rugged air-cooled diesel engines. In 1969, Deutz mergered with Fahr, a farm implement manufacturer. The company was purchased by SAME in 1995.
