Starting old Caterpillar D8 dozer with pony motor
Camp Creek Thresher show, July 2009 Wavery, NE. A friend of ours starting
1945 (I think), Cat D8 for the antique parade at the show. Pony motor has
kill switch, so he puts his hand over the intake to choke it off.
1929 Atlas Imperial diesel.
Originally installed in a tugboat which operated on the Columbia river,
this engine was saved from the scrap pile and restored to magnificent
condition for all of us to enjoy.
This engine now resides at Berthused Memorial Park in Lynde, WA. and is run
every year during the annual Puget Sound Antique Tractor Assn. Threshing
1927 REO Truck - Slide Pack
I'm working on an old 1927 REO truck that has been left open to the weather
for many years and as a result is in a fairly poor state. However it is not
past the point where it cannot be restored, so join me on a journey to see
if I can get it back on the road.

Starting a 1950 Cat D6 9U
The R&GVRRM has a collection of heavy equipment that it uses to maintain
the museum. During this volunteer work session, volunteers Joe Scanlon
(near side) and Pete Gores (far side) work to get the museum's 1950 Cat D6
9U bulldozer started using the tractor's gasoline pony motor. The dozer
was donated several years back and is now being brought back to working
shape to be used for some excavation for the continued construction of a
new railroad siding at the museum. The D6 was a donation from the Hill
family from Twin Hills Golf Club in Clarkson, NY. It is a 1950 CAT D6
model 9U and was bought from Ray Sellick, an equipment dealer in Holley NY.
We pick up the process after several minutes of work including bleeding of
the fuel system as the diesel engine is being turned over by the pony
The museum is always looking for new volunteers to come help us with both
our trains and our heavy equipment. Interested? Please check out our
