GW, if I am not mistaken that strange device attached to the Cushman is the cooling system! Water flowed down that cone (which was made of fine mesh) cooling as it did then drained into the reservoir

Cool stuff, Dawg! I bet it sounded awsome!

The last time I saw anything like these was at Swine Time in Climax, Georgia!

Thanks John,
I thought that might be the case but, I couldn't figure out how it cooled until you pointed out that the cone was wire mesh. Now it all makes scene!

Very nice shots Dawg--sharp and well composed! My brother-in-law collects and restores engines like this and spends time visiting shows throughout the year. I will forward this link to him.

Really sharp pics! What is the Cushman hooked up to?
GW
Cooling system. Early version of a radiator. Don't know if it is water or oil. Looked kinda oily to me.

Great sharp colours, the first one I thought was a toy.
They painted these in bright colors to make the purchaser think he was really getting something.

Beautiful images! All that gasping, popping and boiling water!

We had one of those on the farm, I think it was a US made 'Glover' mounted on an Australian sheep shearing plant. My Dad and his brother used drive this around in the back of an old Buick (converted to a pickup) and shear all the sheep over a wide area. They earned enough to raise their families and buy quite sizeable farms too. The machine is still in the family, nicely restored and my brothers and cousins do occasional exhibitions with it.

Be nice to see a photo of it John!

Thanks Don. They like to park them in the shade. Makes for troublesome exposures.
