Dad added shaw numbers 4 & 5 to his collection, a R12T and a R5. Both need a bit of work to get them back to original, but are now in good hands.

Love that odd steering linkage. Kinda like Case with "Bird Perch" link down side of tractor. Is that crank on the bare flywheel for starting?  Have tapers like big tractors to kit it out when started or what?  Haven't seen one so plain.  What engine? Wisconsins?

There is a guy on my PK forum that is putting in a Wis, Twin in an Economy and think he is using that same gas tank, hood and grill as this one has,,Hmmm!

Where do ya'll keep finding these things? The "crack heads" around here have successfully rounded up all the "old" stuff for scrap!

The steering linkage sits higher than it is supposed to, it has the wrong gear box on it. It should run more parallel to the frame. We always said those Case tractors had chicken roosts on them. That is a normal steering configuration on the Shaws. The engine is a twin cylinder Wisconsin, the sheet metal is factory from Wisconsin all Shaw did was add there name plate to the front. These motors were used as power plants on a lot of equipment including hay balers. The crank is removable. The clutch has what looks like a model A ford ring gear on it and we got a starter with it(not mounted). Not sure if it is factory. We started it with the crank. It has lots of compression. The engine just needs a little tune up to get it to run more smoothly.

Neat tractors!

 

I just acquired an R12T and an R5 needing a lot of attention too and excited to dive into them.

Around here (Wisconsin) Shaw's don't pop up...ever so congrats on the additions to your collection!
