My H. K. Huber, Serial #11830, was manufactured in March 1936.

4617 Ithaca Road Horseheads, New York 14845

Originally sold by an agency in Rochester, New York, it spent
its working life in Yates County New York powering a 28 x 46 Red
River Special Thresher. Sometimes it was used to power a saw mill
in winter. It never did field work like plowing or dragging. The
tractor did the threshing on a commercial scale for about 25
years.

It was then stored in a building for another 25 years. I bought
it and the Red River Special a couple of years ago. I painted it
and added the decals and added the cab. The governor has had new
bearings somewhere along the way. The engine has never been torn
down. It is a Waukesha gas-kerosene engine. It usually starts on
the third pull of the crank. I am the present owner and
restorer.
