This photo is a 1911 6 HP Screen Cooled Stover, Serial #DX34853, 340 RPM. It was manufactured by the Stover Engine Works, Freeport, IL. This engine came from western Pennsylvania and was used for auxiliary power when one of the main engines was shut down for repairs. It was also used in the gas fields. When the engine was purchased, a beam in the barn where it was stored fell down and smashed the cooling tower. It was quite a job restoring the tower. Approximately 180 hours was used in restoring it to it's present condition. The engine is owned by Steve Petris, RD#2, Box 156, Gillett, Pennsylvania 16925.
