A friend of mine has purchased a Rumely 20-35 tractor, style M. Do any of you know where he might acquire a manual which states the specifications as well as the starting procedures?

colophil, you left out the most interesting part of starting a Rumely and that's keeping it going without scaring the neighborhood out of their wits with loud explosions, (Keep shooting gas into her 'till she warms up a little etc.,etc.) Then it's all about weaning it off the gas and getting it on the kerosene or whatever you're gonna run in it? (Sure hope the fuel pump/carburetor primes okay). And you get to meter the fuel with those cute brass knurled knobs on each side of the intake throat. Then if you work it very hard you oughta get some water blended in too to cut down on the pinging. Good old "bump-ba-bumps" like water too when they're workin', don't 'cha know? Rumelys are fun to run....but you gotta run 'em, they don't just set there while you watch. Wonderful Old Tractors though...really.

Larry, I'm not sure about manuels. but to start,first off grease and lube. look for zerk on cluch yoke behind pulley, oil governor on top of engine near throttle, open up valve cover and lube valves and rocker arms. Make sure trans is in neutral, crank lubricator fifty to sixty times [top of engine]. put fresh gas in starting tank [Rumelys do not like old gas]. pump four strokes [one if warm] and open needle valve. close choke. Set flywheel brake [back side of flywheel]. Engage lever in flywheel keep your body away from lever as you pull down, lever should slip out of flywheel at bottom of travel. A few pulls and it should start. Gears are high down and to left, low down and to right, intermediate up and to left reverse up and to right. I have a X converted from a M. Philip

Thank you. That is helpful information which I'll pass on to my friend, Jeff Eppley.

They have the Rumely service manuals here on this forum. Click on Manuals under "Marketplace" to the top left of your monitor's screen. Hal
