Hi Guys, I recently aquired a tractor that's been on my wish list s long time; a 1949 Waterloo Bronco which was made in Waterloo, Ont Canada 1948-1950 I believe. It uses the 2 cylinder Wisconsin TE engine with T96 3-speed trans. It's a very well built, stout little tractor! Any further info is appreciated!

Thanks Rob

Never heard of Waterloo tractors before. Does it still run? Sure looks like it was a quality machine. Someone must have taken pretty good care of it.

Take that to a plow day and you would win the popularity contest.

That same place that built Canadian MM's? Might be why its yellow? Waterloo built lots of MM, but diff for Canadian markets.

Well, I do know that the color is MM Harvest Gold, so there probably is some correlation there. 

 

It's not currently running. The engine turns over and will need some love; but should be able to get running without huge difficulty. I'm definitely looking forward to diving into it and getting familiar!

Your appreciation for the engineering that went into the old equipment is outstanding! It would be fun to get together sometime and learn some of what you have to offer. I am always interested in getting new knowledge. Seems like you are the kind of guy that has so much to offer. Nice find and good luck with it!

Nice looking tractor it's in good condition for it's age. The bronco was made 1948 to 50 like you said and I think they made around a 1000 of them if I remember right and yes Moline sold them in the US I think. I have one restored but haven't had it out running in a while.

I like the fact that there's a Warner T96 behind the Wisconsin twin. The T96 would have been a better choice than the T92 in the Economy tractors. What type of bellhousing/clutch assembly does that Bronco use? I see it has a model A Ford type rear and a torque tube between the trans and rear.

I like it.

Looks like a yellow result of a 8N mating to a farmall cub.

Really sweet little tractor, get it running and post video!
