There was an A around here that pre-dated the Buda engine. I think it was a Hercules? I can't remember. But I know it wasn't a Ford automotive engine. Was that just in R's?

Bob,the model A and R Gleaners used the following engines..

1951-1953 Ford 226 Industrial flathead 6 cylinder
1954-1957 Hercules 236 flathead 6 cylinder
1958 and later-Buda 230 OHV 6 cylinder

I have a 1957 A Gleaner with the Hercules..I won it for a little over $100 on ebay..The engine is free and I need to get it running...

It's interesting that it took AC a few years to get the Buda in the Gleaner. I called the Ford engine automotive because of the downdraft carb. and bottom exhaust. Seems a little unusual for an industrial engine. But then I don't know what it takes to make an engine industrial, other than just calling it that!
