I just got my second gen Kinkade running after almost 2 years searching for a good magneto, so I'm looking forward to getting it completed.

 

If anyone can help, I need some photos or info on how the fuel tank is mounted on the two supports with the right angle bends on the ends. I suspect that some pieces of wood go in there between the tank and the supports.

 

I also need some photos or info on how the caster wheels were constructed since mine were almost completely rusted away. It appears that they were made of some very light gauge sheet metal. Some photos of originals would be great so I could try to duplicate them as closely as possible. I doubt I would ever find some original wheels.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated! 

 

Mike :wave:

Thanks all for the kind words. :wave: I'm starting to feel like I have the only one out there, but I know that's not true.

 

Hey DougT, you got one of these squirreled away over there??

I'm in about the same shape. I don't have the definitive answer. I would suspect rubber before wood but don't know for sure. Do you have a pic of what was left of the wheel?

Doug,

 

I just figured wood since the Walsh and Standard tractors I have laying around here also have small wood saddles under the tanks. The major difference being that those have a continuous steel frame under the tank lengthwise where the Kinkade only has the small right angle bends on the ends of the supports.

 

I literally only have the very centers of the caster wheels left, which look like big flat washers at this point, so they offer no insight as to how the wheels were constructed. I could very easily make some wheels of my own design, which I may end up doing if nobody can offer any info on the originals.

Here's a photo of the wheel hub. All that's left of the actual wheel is sandwiched in the center.

Something else I'm wondering about on this Kinkade is the exhaust. There was nothing on this tractor when I got it. I'd like to know if these had a cast iron turn out piece bolted on like the Walsh and Standard tractors, or did it have a straight exhaust pipe bolted on like my Kinkade K models have?

Here's a photo of where the exhaust bolts to the cylinder.

I tried to re-educate myself on gas tank mounting last night. There were more without anything between the tank and mount than there were with, One had what appeared to be the heavy red fiber like they make the fiber washers from. Another had what looked like hard rubber or maybe a piece of leather. There was a K that had something thicker but I couldn't get close enough to tell.

 

I don't remember any trailing wheels with grease cups on the hub. There is a K with a solid stamped wheel. I don't think I have any Kinkades with a bolt on pipe flange. Wish I could find the pics when I got my second gen. It was real rusty and rough but may show something. It's been apart too long!

Here's some photos of the exhaust pipes and one of the wood tank saddles on my K model Kinkades. Those wheel hubs with the grease cups are original. The image of the tractor on the cover of the reprint manual I have shows the wheels with grease cups.

One of the first gen Standards has a pair of dolly wheels that looks like a single disc blade. I figured they were non original. They do look like the ones in the pic. Maybe they are original? I don't think they have grease fitting though. the only other ones I've ever seen solid were the stamped steel ones. They were stamped fairly square with a 3/4 to 1 inch rim face. They were only about 1/16-1/8 thick. I can't really tell if the ones in the pic have a rim face or not. I notice it has the later oil fill like yours. Does yours have the cast carb or is it aluminum/potmetal?
