Engineers who built C. L. Best's famous Sixty Tractor in 1919 scarcely dreamed it would carry the 'Caterpillar' trademark six years later. Caterpillar continued the Sixty until 1931.

This is one of the largest single cylinder throttling governor, gas and kerosene engines operated in this part of the country; 40 HP, RPM 200, cylinder bore 12?', stroke 19', crankshaft diameter 5?', flywheels 74', exhaust pipe 3?'. Shipping weight as pictured, 13,000 lbs. This is an Ingeco engine, manufactured by the International Gas Engine Company of Cudahy, Wisconsin, year 1915. The Company in 1925 became known as Worthington Pump and Machinery Corporation of New York.
Engine was shipped December 1, 1915, to G. J. Lammers of Gibbsville, Wisconsin; used as a standby engine in a feed mill when the water power was low. I purchased this engine in the fall of 1970 from the Lammers family. It is in mint condition, had it running this summer. Would like to hear from anyone having one like it.

Scaled down Model Oil Pull--approximately ? scale. For power it has a 1? H. P. Fairbanks-Morse engine. I removed the water hopper and both flywheels on the right side; used a clutch from an old Model B, John Deere and a flywheel from a larger engine. The drive wheels and gears are from an old Blue Grass Striping Machine; the front wheels I cut down from a manure spreader. It runs about two miles per hour forward and a little slower in reverse. Spent about two years of my spare time to build.
