In the early 1940s, a neighbor still used a Titan 10-20 in the fall for disking corn stalks. He thought the angle lugs helped to chop the stalks. Don't know if that was true. As a kid, I used to lean over the rail fence to watch and listen. He offered me a ride once, and I can still remember all the wonderful levers and rods reciprocating, jiggling and clicking right there in front of the driver. A gearhead's dream! No doubt most of the readers here know that the Titan had both pistons moving on the same throw, so there was even firing, unlike the John Deere opposed-throw design, BUT the heavy weights moving together made the whole tractor rock backwards and forwards when it was sitting still!! Incredibly archaic piece of machinery when you consider that cars of this era already fully-enclosed engine parts, internal lubrication (a few even with full-pressure lubrication, I believe), disk clutches, radiators, enclosed drives to the rear wheels, and so on. But what a delight to watch all this machinery out in the open!
