Default New Steamer owner with a few questions

My husband and I recently purchased a 25HP New Huber and are restoring it. However , we are looking for some help. We are going to have to put a roof on it and we are wondering if there are any pictures to go by or and specs ? If anyone would know of a website or a contact that would be great !

Welcome to Smokstak and congratulations on the Huber! If you use the gallery search function you should be able to get several pictures of Hubers to pop up. For exact measurments your best bet will be to find the same size Huber and ask the owner for some measurments and pictures. Welcome again and happy steaming!
Beau

P.S. Can we get some pictures of your new toy please please please???

Thanks ! And I will get some pictures of the restoration in progress by Monday to look at My husband mself and our 18 year old son have worked on it for the last 3 nights scraping off the old grease and dirt. Getting ready to use a steam cleaner to finish that part of the clieaning.
We are all three going to go to steam school as well It is a family project.

If you soak with plenty of diesel, kerosene, or other solvent to soften that old grease before you use the steam cleaner it will do a much better job.

Congratulations Cheryl! It looked like a nice engine from the auction pictures. I have many original Huber catalogs if you're looking for any specific info. Unfortunately I don't have any drawings of the canopy, but my 18HP Huber needs a canopy too. Good luck on your restoration!

Here's my Engine #9973:
