Company: Stover Engine Works, Freeport, Ill.
Year: 1910-1912
Horsepower: 1
Serial number: K43823
Bore: 3-1/2-inch
Stroke: 4-inch
Governing: Hit-and-miss
Igniter: Igniter, battery and coil
Additional notes: Found at the Port­land, Ind., show. It was in sad shape and was rebored and sleeved. The rest of the work was done by the current owner; now it runs like a new engine. Believed to be a rare engine and it is unknown as to how many similar engines may be out there.
