Default Hinckley Engines 1914??-1926

Carl C Hinkley, after a number of years with various auto companies, formed Titan Motors Co, which "quickly" became Hinkley Motors, later Hinkley Motors Corp and Hinkley Motors Inc, around 1914/1917 (accounts differ), produced WWI Liberty B truck engines etc and later produced "truck and tractor engines" until 1925 or 26, when his company was "liquidated" and he went to Buda.
While they made a fair penetration of the truck market, so far I've only found one tractor with a Hinkley: a Huber Master Four 1925-26 or so with a Hinkley 1900, listed as a 51/2x6 (other Hinkley engine sections show the 1900 as a 5x6)...
Engine ID designations were like 200, 300, 500 up to 1900, or H, HA, HAA plus those numbers.
Does anyone here recall any other tractors with Hinkley engines, or any used in any other eqpmt or as as power units??
Any comments appreciated; many thxx!! Bud

There was a 3 1/2 tom 1917 Paige truck on Earl Marhanka's Kruse auction in about 1993. It had a Hinkley engine, newly made cab and hood needed to be made. It sold to a Mason City Ia. museum for $3500. I was runner up. I, even checked the radiator for leaks. It is the only Paige truck in existence. The museum cut the frame and shortened it.

Yes, Paige was one of the 20 or so trucks I found with Hinkleys listed; as usual, two catalogs differ on which Hinkley, but at least they agree on Hinkley!
Many thxx for comment.
