THOMAS J. WOODARD'S ADVANCE- RUMELY
This letter is from Thomas H. Woodard, 3025 Opossum Run Road,
Rt. 10, Mansfield, Ohio 44903; telephone 419-756-4445. He owns an
Advance-Rumely 1919, 18 HP, serial #15278.
He writes: 'I purchased the engine in 1952 from the late
Chas. Harrison of Fredericktown, Ohio. If I remember correctly he
got it from two brothers named Bell somewhere west of Columbus,
Ohio, and that is where it was sold from.'
It is a good engine--sound boiler and gearing like new.
Mr. Harrison had never run the engine. The water tank and bunker
are all new. It now has the original water on the rear instead of
the box you see in the picture. Wheels are red; tank and bunker are
gray, boiler is black, and the engine and gearing are green and
I restored the engine myself, and also a 30-48 Advance Rumely
separator to go with it. Both look like new.
I show these at the Dover, Ohio show and the Richland County
steam threshers show at Malabar Farm State Park.
