That thing is a little mini tank and it probably pulls like one. Nice one.

That's something that's been a topic of debate. Vaughan claims to have built their own. The crankcase is definitely Vaughan. It is flange mounted to the tractor. The oil pan is also different. The jug is the same physical size as an AHH but the bore is bigger. When I restored mine the valve train from the Wisconsin worked in the Vaughan but I had to use the valve and the lifter together. I don't remember which was which but one the valve stem was longer and the lifter shorter. The other was the opposite. The one in the video was built in the 37-40 range.

I'm probably the world's worst at taking pictures and most of my stuff isn't in photogenic locations. Then ther are all those pictures on the old technology called film and paper. When I paste them on the computer all it does is make a mess!! Here are a couple shots of a Vaughan waiting restoration. Anybody have a spare set of rear hubs and sprockets for a model H??????
