Besides working on the farm equipment, I have been sneaking in time on the engine:
  1. New outside protection on mud shields.
  2. Water tanks on with decals.
  3. Also new steps installed, they came from the factory warehouse near Stanton. The old steps were broken, cracked and cast iron. The new ones are ductile.
This Engine had seven options when ordered:
  1. Full length canopy
  2. 12 and one eight width fly wheel
  3. Boiler Jacket
  4. Full width draw bar
  5. Angle Iron grate support
  6. Blakeslee Jet pump
  7. outside guard on mud shields.
Soon the piping will be installed.

Interesting. Neither of my engines has that lip on the gear guards. I wonder why yours does. Steel gears, maybe? Perhaps Ask the User knows.

So it was special order. Similar to my 1913, where the wheels were drilled for ice spikes.

Those shields are riveted on, right?

Yes the shields are riveted on. I am curious if there are any other port huron engines with the same shields.
