Would someone know a short, concise history of the Buda Engine Company? I am working on a corporate history of the Edwards Motor Car Co. and for twenty years this company built self-propelled railroad coaches that used Buda engines.

I would like to include a brief history of the founding and other products produced by Buda. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

You'll find references to the Buda story in Stan Grayson's book Engines Afloat Volume II.I think Andrew Menkhart can get you the book from this website.

I am considering to buy a late 1920's or early 30's Seagrave fire engine with a 12 cylinder Buda engine in it. Can anyone tell me its history, what it would be worth or where to get parts for it?? All help and comments are appreciated!!

Trying to communicate with someone that has knowledge of large 4 cylinder Buda engines as used with Gardner-Denver Air compressors. This is a large 4 Wheel "I" Beam Trailer Mounted unit. Tires are 9:00 x 20's Early reseach indicates it was made in 1941. According to the heirs the whole thing was recondition by the 92 year old machinist that has recently passed away. Name plates on both compressor and engine have long since become un-readable. More information later. I need to locate a scource where I can do more research. Pictures will be available by the end of November. HELP PLEASE

I'm restoring a 1923 Atlas truck with a WTU Buda engine. I was concerned about the correct color of the Buda engine. Could anybody help me? What color did Buda paint their engines?

I am seeking some clues about the Buda 4 cyl engine that was in the 1924 to'27 Luxor taxicab.
I am of course making assumptions that the marine, tractor and industrial engines are about the same. I am sure it is a gas engine or the listing would have said otherwise. I seek size (B&S), model number and if it had 5 main crankshaft
In some old misc parts manuals I have, I see a 153 and maybe a 210, (no yr, listing) which I bet are cubic inches??
One parts listing makes mention that the early engine had only a 3 main brg crank.
Any help appreciated.

Well the 153 is a very common engine used in a number of tractors in the 40's and 50's.They are in the 30HP range,and are way too small and new to be in a 1927 taxi.The old buda engines used 2 or three letters as the model number.I only have a listing for 1935 tractors so can't really help without more info from you.

Could have bought a complete and reportedly runnable Buda-Lavona(?) six cylinder diesel recently. Looked like a 40s or earlier engine.

I have inherited a 6DT-468, non supercharged buda diesel engine, assembled, new and in cosmolene and packing material. I also have the parts for a complete 2nd engine and additional parts most new. I do not have a use for these vintage engines. Does anyone still use these? Is there a market for the engine and parts?

Buda "Marblehead"?
I have a KM428 marine engine, but the transmission reads "Marblehead Buda". Has anyone ever seen one with these markings? I spoke with Jim at Buda in Shreveport and he's never seen it eitherBuda "marblehead" picture

Last November Bill Noel posted a request for information about a Buda engine with a Gardner-Denver compressor. My Dad has one like this, built in 1934. We tried to reply to Bill's email, but it didn't work. Bill, if you want to contact my dad, please email him at crb7777@centurylink.net

John: Saw your post the other day but got derailed...
Assuming you haven't found a WU, have you looked into whether a WTU would suffice??
No, I don't know what the difference is--Buda had many of these (YU/YTU, XU/XTU) apparently always of the same b/s. I've emailed Buda in Shreveport and John Paulsen in Olympia (no replies) and asked on smokstak, but got no definitive answer.
In one catalog I eyeballed, Huffman showed both in one 1920-24 model and Traylor showed both in a 1920-28 model (1933 catalog). Most makes that showed both engines, tho, showed the WTU in later years.
My apologies if we've emailed before; my ISP changed systems and I lost some old email files.
With sympathy, Bud
