Homer E. Allen, owner of Sun Valley Farm at Minford, Ohio, is so fond of his 20-40 Huber that he has a drawing of it on his letterhead.

He found the Huber in a woods. The first owner had used it for threshing. The second owner, Emmett Low, used it for threshing and sawmilling.

'We started restoring it in 1973 and didn't get it finished until 1979,' Homer recalls. 'It is all original. I even have the extension rims that came with it. The reason it took so long to restore is that the motor was stuck, with one busted piston. The night before I went to haul it home, someone had cut the radiator out for junk. Through Gas Engine Magazine, I found a radiator for it, 20 miles out of Chicago. I also found the piston through a man who also takes GEM, in Pennsylvania.

Homer has a Doylestown separator which is in excellent shape. It has solid wood axles, and a hand-feeding sacker with no weigher. He would appreciate hearing from people who can tell him more about the separator. It was bought on the Pennsylvania-Maryland border.

Homer's collection includes more Hubers. He also owns a 20-60 Minneapolis steam engine, one 28-46 Minneapolis separator, several other separators and other antique farm machinery. He lists about 10 gas and oil engines from 1? HP to 25 HP, including brand names such as Galloway, Fairbanks Morse, Gray and Sattley, sold by Montgomery Ward and Company.

His address: Sun Valley Farm, Rt. 1, Box 165, Minford, Ohio 45653. Telephone (614) 820-3586.
