I saw one of those on the side of a backwoods road last summer and tried to figure out what it was ! Good info !

Any chance you could see if it's still there and see if you can get any info on it?

I am corresponding with a guy in Salem Oregon who has one and says 3 of these have passed through his hands over the years.  I've asked him about his serial number and number location as well as where the other 3 went..

Yes they would be SJ.  Are his serial numbers accounted for?

I hope to go back up that way for my B-day next month , I will ask my uncle to go and look , he knows where it was , we stopped and looked at alot of stuff there . 

but no one was home that day to ask. 

It was a strange looking thing that is why I remember it , and the crazy steering .

I will look for a number on it if do get out there.

This one was pretty rough shape , but looks like it was mostly all there compared to these others.

Slowly taking the tractor apart.  No surprises so far. Found a nice patch of original orange-red paint in the brake cylinder.  So repainting will be accurate. I would appreciate getting close-up views of the hydraulic system so I can figure if i have the original set or if i need to reconstruct it.

 

thanks

The hydraulic pump on the engine of yours isn't original. Can't tell what you have for a valve. Below is the factory set-up.

 

 

This is the hydraulic reservoir.

This is the pump. It is manually operated with the black handle. If you look close you can see a rod coming out of the center of the lever. The lever has a knob on top to operate the rod and that is how the pressure is released.         DSC03363.JPG

 

These are a couple pics of the valve assy. It's connected to the pump cylinder. The pump is on the left side of the pic. You can see the bottom of the black handle.

This is the hydraulic cylinder. Looks like you have the same one.

Is that a custom unit or off-the-shelf? Mine looks nothing like that.

I'm not sure what it is. Both of the ones that have been through here have the same set up. I'm fairly sure that is the original factory set up. It looks to me like someone has modified yours with a power steering pump off the engine so they didn't have to pump it by hand.

Doug, came across mention of another Pacific H6 at a museum in Montana in their 2009 newsletter.  Not sure if you've got its serial number.

 

and http://miracleofamericamuseum.org/ 

 

they don't seem to have an email address, just a facebook page and their webpage.

I was leafing through my 1949-50 Red Tractor Book published by Implement and Tractor in Kansas City, Mo., published in 1949.  On page 161 are the specs for the Pacific H6 and the image that appears in Dave Baas' garden tractor book.  If there is any interest, I can scan this page and upload to the forum. 

 

In keeping with my west coast focus, there are two other garden tractors that appeared in this book that I had not heard of:

 

The Universal by Universal Machinery Corporation, Portland, a walk-behind with a Briggs & Stratton 1 stroke

 

and

 

The Buicat by Western Implement Company in Salt Lake City.  The 3HP version was a single track walk-behind while the 6HP version was a dual track rider with articulated steering much like the Pacific H6.

 

Anyone know of these?

I'd be interested in seeing the 2 tractors you mentioned. I think I've seen the Universal but don't recall the other.  I have a spec sheet on the Pacific already scanned. not sure if it's the same as yours. Haven't had a chance to check out the museum link but don't think that number is on the list.

I was finally able to get back up there and found out this is not the same thing.

Doug, the Buicat must have been a one or two-off since i can find nothing about it or the company in my usual internet research locations.

 

The Universal, on the other hand, is such a broadly used name it will take a while to locate info on it.

 

On a sad note, in attempting to pull the brake drum apart on the Pacific H6 i broke the outer brake drum plate...first time in 23 years I've broken a piece of cast iron.
