Default 1912 Stover YB

Does anyone know the approximate weight of a 1912 Stover YB pumping unit with the walking beam?

Secondly, I am looking for an ingnitor and mixer for the same engine.

Larry

According to my catalogs, if your engine has 28 inch diameter flywheels, the weight of the engine is 1,050 pounds. If yours is the heavy duty engine for a pumping unit with 35 inch flywheels, the weight is 1,600 pounds for the engine itself.

Thanks, Jim. I know it is heavy because as I was lifting it from the trailer, the engine hoist fell to the side, and the engine hit the left rear corner of my pickup. You know the rest of the story. Fortunately, only the valve linkage and the rocker arm was damaged.

Good luck finding your parts Larry. I am still looking for my first Stover upright.
I hope you get it running.

Jim,
The only book of a general nature that I have is C.H. Wendel's Power in the Past, Vol. 3 which deals with Stovers. Do you know of any others besides the yellow book?
Thanks, Harry, for all of these grand pages.
Larry

Good morning Larry,

I have a few of the old Stover catalogs that I pulled the info out of for you on the weight of your engine. They are similiar to the one shown on the front of the Gas Engine magazine a couple of months ago. Otherwise I use Volume 3.

Jim
