A Grain Elevator and a Runaway Stover

The story of Bill Stewart’s retrieval of a 3 HP Stover engine, Type KG, from the Bristol Grain Elevator.

Stover Model TB 208511
Kenney Yeager Jr., from Waterman, Ill., is the proud owner of this Stover Model TB 208511. The records show that this engine was shipped to the H. Channon Co., Chicago, on April 8, 1930. Kenney’s dad won the engine in a drawing at the Sandwich, Ill., engine show 20 years ago. Kenney’s dad just got around to restoring the engine and gave it to Kenney. Kenney was showing his engine at the Ohio, Ill., engine show. He was one happy kid!
