One of my tractors did not make it to the 2019 SC&FS Show this year.

So, I made a separate video and gave it a steam up today.

The Weeden No. 643 Tractor was introduced in 1924 and produced into 1937.  The Tractor is 8 1/2' long, 4' wide and stands 11 1/2' tall.

Mine is a later version.  Earlier versions had a spoked flywheel and a shorter firebox with a two wick burner.  This was an eBay BIN purchase.  It was complete with the four wick burner and smokestack.  I have done nothing to it other than giving it a good oiling.
