I recently acquired two Hubers:

1938 40-62 Serial Number 13335
1925 15-30 Serial Number 7770

Any historical information on either of those tractors would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you

Number 7770 is shown as being sold to William Mack at Spencerville, Ohio on 9/28/1925.
Number 13335 is too new for the list I have.

I need all 4 steel wheels for a 40-62 Huber. 25-50 will do. PM if you have them.

We just hauled home a Huber that's been sitting outside for years and has lost its serial tag. The engine is a Waukesha DKR 3 D, 4-3/4x6-1/4, #237306, dated April 1930. It's on rear steel, front cutoffs. It has some potential so we are curious what it is. We are thinking 18-36 hoping one of you Huber experts could assist with identification. Thanks in advance!

Titan:
The DK Waukesha was used in the 20-36. The 18-36 is a tractor with a larger chassis and a Stearns power plant.
Happy Hubering,

There are 2 firing orders for 4 cylinder engines. They are 1 - 3 - 4 - 2 or 1 -2 -4 - 3.. Take all the plugs out, crank it over and when you find TDC #1. Place a chalk mark on the front pulley. When you turn the engine close to 1/2 turn and with your thumb over the spark plug hole see if #2 or #3 is coming up on compression. Once you determine which cylinder is coming up on compression check where the position of the rotor is and install the wire in the cap. When you turn the engine another half turn to where your chalk mark lines up again the rotor should be lined up with #4. Questions, send me an e-mail and include your phone number. Good luck.

Thank you John. Would send e-mail if I had your e-mail address.

Fantastic! Thanks again for that information. My brother will be very happy to get that. Tractor was sitting in northwest Ohio for years so it wasn't too far away from Indiana.

Does anyone know of a 40-62 operator's manual available anywhere? Original would be preferred of course, but a copy would be just fine as well. Thanks!

---------- Post added at 09:40:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:27:44 PM ----------

Sorry for the double post, but I also meant to ask about changing oil in my 40-62. Does anyone know if there is an oil filter and gasket made that would fit my 1938 Huber 40-62?

Also, does anyone have an opinion on what type of oil to use? I've read 30W...I've read 15W-40 diesel oil....etc. Anyone have a solid opinion?

Thanks!

Either oil will do well, I use straight 30 wt. in mine as it's on hand at the farm in bulk. These present day oils we have now are vastly better than what was available when these tractors were new. The thing I did with mine was to drop the crankcase cover and clean out the sump as it had a lot of sludge in the bottom, now the oil stays nice and clear. I got a reprint manual from the Engineers and Engines people some years back. It has some specs and very general operating instructions in it, but not much else. My oil filter has the washable sock element in it, so we use it. Some times you can save the ends from an old filter and use them to sandwich a modern cartridge element between the ends and with a bit of spring pressure from the top, it works fine.

Thank you for the info! Do you use straight 30 “non detergent”. My fear in using detergent oil is it might break up old sludge and hurt the engine. Thoughts?
