IHC Treasure Trove

| September/October 1996

R.D. 1, Box 234 A, Meyersdale, Pennsylvania 15552

I thought you might be interested in the collection of IHC equipment and many tools we have here at Kinsinger Engine Service.

We have IHC 8-16's, W-12, O-12, 1-12, F12 with wide front, fenders, F14 with starter kit and hydraulic and two speed. W30, WK40, Cub, H, M with rare factory two speed, four bottom Little Genius and one bottom Cub plow, small Cub disc, one horse grain drill, two horse corn planter, one horse and Cub sickle mowers, Cub cultivator, Cub manure spreader, mower sickle sharpener, 10 inch Burr mill with feed conveyor, eight inch hammer mill, two roll husker shredder, hand crank corn sheller with fan, six foot grain binder, corn binder, No. 5 ensilage cutter, vacuum pump, cream separator, LB 1 to 2 and 3 to 5 gas engines with water pump jacks, No. 15 stationary wire tie hay press, 46 hay baler, Cub firewood saw. P30, PK40 and U21 power units.

Of the gas engines, the oldest is a 2 HP upright Famous hopper-cooled; according to Wendel's book, only a few were built and none to be found. Mine is in good shape, with original wood battery box and two wood IH coils, and runs nice. We also have three rare L engines built in 1929 before the LA and LB. 1 HP Mogul, 1, 3, 6, and 10 HP M. Several versions of LA and LB (pump jack, binder, extension water hopper, radiator cooled). Kerosene 3 to 5, natural gas LB with clutch.

I guess the hobby is what started the IH collection and the engine and tractor business. The first tractor was a 1929 10-20 for $35 in last year of school (1960). I still have it and it runs. Wonder if IH made an air compressor?

We also have many books we can copy from, and we buy NOS (new old stock) parts or can take rare parts from our collection to make new parts to complete your project. Anyone is welcome to stop in and see our collection, but remember we're closed on Sunday.
