Another nice day . Overcast until around noon then sun the rest of the day, a few people displaying left and some new ones set up for the day. From what I was told the attendance was t best ever for the fall show . Flea market people were very happy with sales . The food stand sold out . I think they keep track of displays so maybe I can find how many were there set up

I'll try to post pictures some time this week

Alc,

Below is a photo of a Walsh that was at Jacktown a few years ago.  I apologize as I don't know who the owner is.

My buddy & I arrived at 10am and ended up parking waaaaaaaayyyy back in the field.

 

We have never seen the field so full at any other event, so I believe that an attendance record was set.

 

We spent most of our time in the swap area.   ....When I went by Al's equipment, he wasn't there.

 

Sorry I missed seeing any other GTT'ers.

Bruce I missed a lot of people on Sat. Oh well glad you came and enjoyed the show . One flea marketer said he was $200 ahead  ( guess meaning + expenses ) on Fri .,,,,,,,,,,,, the show didn't start until Sat , he sold that much to out flea marketers   lol .

   I sat next to a fellow for breakfast Sun who was the vice president of the club and  remarked how the pulling track changes  and  new area they opened up really was great . I showed him my GTTalk hat and told him a little about us.  I  ask if he thought we could set a area aside in the  new area for GTT tractors and equipment  at one of the shows and he didn't think it was a problem . That might be a fun thing to do . That area is big , has shade , and members could camp in  there too if they wanted to .

Thanks for posting the Walsh picture Charlie  ( earthgrinder )  I noticed the carb is mounted towards the rear . Did they make a change in the later Walsh or  maybe a mixture of engines ?   The Monarchs I was told hand a completely different engine so I'm pretty sure it wasn't one of those . Someone yesterday said the cylinder on mine looked Briggs he also said his Monarch had Ford a connecting rod . I have no idea about either .

I really do not know much about them.  PM me and I will give you contact info for someone who is much more knowledgeable.  I was looking through my Jacktown photo archives for some photos to send to Grand and I came across that Walsh.  By the way I would just leave yours the way it is appearance wise.  I think one in the condition of yours is much more appealing in its current condition.

Bruce, wish we could have connected.  Grand came along to the show with me.  We got there around 9:45 and were way in the back as well.  Never saw a crowd like that there before.

Did have a good time at the show and saw some interesting displays. I was told beforehand that there would't be a large number of garden tractors but there was still plenty to see. I took a few pics I want to share.

Thanks for posting the Walsh picture Charlie  ( earthgrinder )  I noticed the carb is mounted towards the rear . Did they make a change in the later Walsh or  maybe a mixture of engines ?   The Monarchs I was told hand a completely different engine so I'm pretty sure it wasn't one of those . Someone yesterday said the cylinder on mine looked Briggs he also said his Monarch had Ford a connecting rod . I have no idea about either .

Al, the Walsh Charlie posted is newer than yours, probably in the 50s. It has the same carb and air cleaner that the Standard Edgeton and Kinkade Suburbanite used. Notice the different side cover? That tractor has the magneto option. You can see part of the mag under the carb. That was also an option when your tractor was built. The Walsh cylinder looks similar to a Briggs P/PB...until you put them side by side.

 

The Monarch was basically the same only bigger. 3 1/2 HP vs 2 1/2. The jug had a little different shape and mounted with 4 bolts instead of 2. The Monarch tank mounted side to side instead of front to back like the Walsh. They retained the wood handles into the late 30's. In the late 30's they were switched to a flywheel magneto and steel handles. The shroud went from the square cut style to a more rounded style similar to the twin. The basic engine remained the same. It's been a while since I had one apart but I don't think they used the T rod.

I'll be glad when they finally get the new grove organized and roped off properly. It was used as a parking lot last year and wasn't much better this year. I'm fed up with showing up at least two days early only to find just about every spot big enough for a small camper already spoken for after traveling 240 miles  and six hours IMG_3322.JPG IMG_3356.JPG IMG_3332.JPG IMG_3434.JPG to get there.
