Photo Stover T runs!!

This is'nt the best picture, but this 4 H.P. Stover was my winter project, but turned out to be a winter and spring project. I built the drop frame cart and pot muffler from scratch. I tore the engine completely down to the last nut and bolt and fully restored it. I may have to machine a new wrist pin as it is a little more sloppy than I thought, but other than that, it runs like a top. AND, thank god for the compression release!!!!! This is a big engine for 4 H.P.

No wonder you look so happy, you sure did a nice job on that Stover. I also like the job you did on the cart. Makes a good looking display that you can be realy proud of. Dick in the beautiful, warm(about time), Finger Lake Region of NY.

I was told that from the original literature that the shipping weight of these engines was 1050 pounds. I dont doubt that a bit. I bet with my cart the hole thing weighs 1200 pounds.
