  • There are three other wrenches similar to Curt's "1892 for wrist pin only", They are marked "for wrist pin only" and "1866", "1916", and "2033" respectively. There is also a larger wrench marked "Sampson Tractor Company 754372". I also have wrenches marked "750367" and "752425" which are probably new Sampson numbers for what were Janesville Machine Co. wrenches. I would like to hear from anybody that has parts lists for Sampson or Janesville Machine Co. that shows the wrenches and other tools. www.wrenchingnews.com

  • I have a Samson wrench stamped 1892. One end is for "wrist-pin only". Turn the wrench over and the other end is for "front cap-box only". I'd like information on what tractor this would be for and any other information on this wrench.

  • This is my tractor. Photo is at Brooks Oregon tractor show. My dad bought it in 1912 in Chico, California. Four to five horse pull with sieve grip wheels. Tractor built by Samson Iron Works, in Stockton Calif. One cylinder, 7" bore, 9" stroke. It is built low to the ground to work in orchards, unlike other tractors which are high above the ground to work in crop fields.

  • I am a member of the Thornbury Vintage Tractor and Implement club Southland New Zealand. We have one of these in our club, it has been restored for about 3 years. They are supposed to be painted grey. They also have a funny type of carburator on them, which will have been replaced, you will have trouble trying to find one..
