Bill Stewart of Sandwich, Ill., with his 3 HP Type KG Stover no.193177, which was shipped to Northern Conveyor Co., Janesville, Wis., on Feb. 28, 1928. The engine was used on a coal elevator at the Bristol Grain Co. from 1928 to 1955. Bill and his dad had quite a time retrieving the engine at the end of its service. Bill was just 13 years old when he acquired the engine.
