This is a very nice survivor that I had the pleasure to have a little part of making it to our small fair ;)
I redid the fuel tank after she has sat for a "few" years :shock:
I hope to get to talk to the owner and ask alot of questions on how he came to own it and what they used it for.
Its a 1923 Rumely Oil Pull G? I will hope to have alot more info by the end of the weekend and possibly another tractor story :D

Here are the pics I took tonite!!

Re: 1924 Rumely Oil Pull

Nice pics and I'm sure your proud!!These must have been really popular seems like they show up at a lot of steam shows. Look forward to more info if you get it.I'm just guessing but think I have heard they were used to run thrashers and such.

Bertman; thank You, I have always really liked the whole Oil Pull line. I kind of envy You for Your part on this grand old tractor. Will be watching to find out what You learn about it. I also have wondered why the Models B E & F were built to run in reverse rotation from the G and following Rumely 2 cylinders.

A few years ago I got to watch a Rumley hooked to the pulling sled. He got about two seventy five feet and the clutch slipped. That shook the earth! Oh the sound they make under load, pure music!!! :lol: :lol:
