Photo Huber 40-62 Industrial

Sometimes it's amazing what is still out there sitting in a pasture. This tractor was located about 20 miles North of Syracuse. It is a later 40-62 and from what we can tell the only difference that makes this an "Industrial" is the French and Hecht wheels and a heavy duty swinging drawbar that is different from the standard tractor.

The block of the engine is broke right off of the case. The owner told us he bought it that way from a neighbor who was using the tractor on the saw mill when he thought it got hot, seized and broke like it is today. The engine is a standard EU Stearns however it does have a different head, cast iron valve cover (vs aluminum) and carb then we have seen on other Stearns. I'm guessing this is a later design and not something unique to the Industrial.

Plans are to hopefully find enough parts to put together another engine, and get it moving again. If anyone has any EU or DU Stearns parts that could be bought, please pass it along. Thanks for looking!

Those big Hubers just keep coming out of the wood work! The trouble we have been running into on parts is that all of the old parts tractors are now being gathered up to be restored. Depending how bad it is broken, I sure would consider spending the money to get it welded back together, as the block is the most needed part to find as all of the project tractors are in need of the same casting. There are places that specialize in repairing original large castings. I myself have one with a internal broken cylinder. One place that does advertise in the collector magazines is in Ia. Midwest Cyl head repair and machine Nevada Ia. I never had any dealings there but sounds like they might be worth checking out. Probably pricey. If your casting only has the bottom flange that bolts to the crankcase broken, likely the bolts worked loose and that may have led to the failure.

Ouch! that one left a mark. Can't say I've ever seen an engine do that before. Be right interesting to see what all happened inside. So what it really needs is a crankcase for sure. Those are usually not damaged, you may be able to find one, the upper block is usually what is bad. Radiators occasionally show up, if not those tanks can be recast. Some one sold a complete motor on engine adds last winter, someone on the site got it. They may read this and speak up, never know. I doubt that just over heating would cause it to do that much damage, more likely a rod cap came off.

Wheels are similar to TC industrial wheels. Neat!

Very possible that the F&H wheels are the same as my Huber had Twin City cast center wheels on it when it arrived here. Same spline.

It left a bigger mark on the right side.
