Hi does anyone Know where I could get a drawing [general arrangement] of a Rumeley Oil pull tractor. I am thinking of making a model using a Hit and miss engine. Thanks.
 
Well...I kind of started designing this...http://www.modelenginemaker.com/index.php/topic,9186.msg203838.html#msg203838

The only plans I could find for anything similar were Rudy's as mentioned in my post.

Thank you John, are there any dimensions on those? Which were Rudy's plans you mention?
 
The plans "A Stirling-Powered Tractor" were published in "The shop wisdom of Rudy Kouhoupt" volume 3. Rudy mentions it is "About 1/12 Scale".
Some dimensions To give you an idea...
Frame rails 13-1/8" lg.
Rear wheel ( rims) 4-11/16 Dia. X 1-1/8 wd.
Front wheel (rims) 3-1/16 Dia. X 9/16 wd.
It can be operated to disengage the drive wheels with a lever.

Might be a bit small for adapting a small IC engine to, but could be scaled up. Often wondered about the "Webster"....

John

Edit: Found this drawing I created...

I have just been asking the same question on the Model Engineer and was directed to Smoke Stack forum there is a bit of info but only a bit
Les Proper has one on his youtube channel
My idea was to use a flame gulper as per Les but in a larger scale to compliment my Stirling tractor
Guess i will keep looking but there is not a lot of info knocking about or I may just be unlucky
cheers
