My pride and joy (both my six year old son, Kenny and my 1924 Witte Drag Saw.) I have fully restored the saw to almost like new condition. I do have a few more things to do to it but other than that it is finished. It has taken me almost a year to restore this piece of equipment. I have yet to make the round gas tank and attach the clutch assembly.

I have six old engines and several pieces of other equipment I work on--which is my hobby.

A 3 HP. Titan International that I have been hunting to put in my collection. When I bought it, the water pump and pump connecting rod, cooling cone and tank, muffler, battery box and all the moving parts of the igniter were missing.

Today, I have everything complete. We had an International Famous which is identical to this engine--when I was a boy and my Dad had a book, I was able to duplicate parts by scaling the engine size picture.

Dick Seibert of Hummelstown gave me sizes for the muffler.

James and Edgar White of St. Clairsville, Ohio have a trailer load of engines that were restored and painted. They are a 1934 International Type LA 1?Hp., a 1923 Fairbanks-Morse Model Z 1? Hp., a 1932 Twin Maytag and two 1926 single cylinder Maytags. Photo by courtesy of Thomas B. Fulton, 132 South Marietta Street, St. Clairsville, Ohio 43950.

This picture of my Huber Tractors was taken in 1969. From left to right: Huber, Model Modern Farmer, 14-28 HP. 1931; Huber Super Four 18-36 HP. 1925; Huber Light Four 20-36 HP. 1931; Huber Forty Sixty Two 40-62 HP. 1927.

My York Tractor was purchased in 1911. It was rebuilt in 1960. It is a big success at all the shows I have taken it. Manufactured in 1910-2-4 HP. No. 1787.

My 1924 10-20 McCormick Deering. I am trying to restore it.

A McCormick-Deering engine running a Hocking Valley two-hole corn sheller with its owner, Sharon Schut. A 25 HP Franklin engine with owner, Cal Dyke, behind it.

Rawleigh Woltman, Avoca, Iowa owns this 3 hp. Nelson engine shown in the photo. It was built in S. W. Iowa at Harlan, Iowa and is a fine running engine.

Pictured is a 1909 Black Motor Buggy. This car was delivered to George Troeh at Grangeville, Idaho on July 22, 1909. It is still in family hands. Mr. Troeh was my wife's great grandfather. I spent some 350 hours restoring this car. The trans mission was completely worn out and one cylinder was scored. My good friend, Del Harlan, at Garfield, Washington made new gears and rebored the bad cylinder and poured new rod bearings. It runs real nice.

Some of the specifications are: 2 cylinder, 4?' bore-4?' stroke, 20 hp., 2 speeds forward and 1 reverse. It has steel tired wheels.

I would like to know if anyone has seen one of these or knows anything about one.
