The 1 HP Sta-Rite pictured was restored by my Uncle Clarence Johnson from the Gary/Twin Valley area of Minnesota. He was a farmer most of his life, and during the winters he restored many engines. Many of the engines he has since given to my brother Jerry and to me. We can't thank him enough for what he has done for a couple of young engine collectors! A very special thanks, Uncle Clarence!

About the engine, the unique round-faced flywheels and how complete it is, we do have some questions. When was it made? And how many collectors have similar engines? I will try to reply to all who write.
