I am attempting to make my first Traction engine, in fact complete one that I started many years ago but it got lost in time. Now recovered and attempting to locate updated information and a set of gears or the info required to manufacture them. The project is from the Popular Mechanics Plans Library B-1272 by Rudy Kouhoupt. The original gear source was Chicago Gear Works, they don't seem to exist anymore. So if you can assist I would really appreciate it. Additionally, I inherited an old Myford lathe ( flat belt drive, serial no 7xxx, ) and lots of home made tools along with incomplete steam and petrol engines. So this old electrician is going to learn lots in the shed. Have a good day.
