Gas Engines & Tractor

| September/October 1975

My 3 HP Stickney engine which weighs 1275 lbs. With the help of my wife we have all three engines painted and striped in their original colors.

It is my Bucyrus 2-1/2 HP throttling governor made around 1905 in Bucyrus, Ohio at the old Foundry. That is me in the picture. Until I hear from someone that has one, I think I have the only one left.

It is my vertical 2 HP IHC Famous hit and miss with self contained water hopper. These engines were only made from 1909 to 1911.

Pictured is an old restored orchard sprayer with an unusual engine. The shadow just about spoils the important view of the engine. Courtesy of William Hurlbut, Kilbourn Road, Rome Floyd, N.Y. 13440.
