Well done Rob, it is a hot tube Stickney with a round hopper






Interesting history on this engine - hopefully the owner (another Staker) will tell us more...

Correct! It is a mill model superior. We are in the process of moving it to pour concrete. It is a 60hp.

Yes Joel, a 60hp Superior mill engine. If I remember right I think dad knew of at least 1 maybe 2 75hp mill engines. But this one is odd. It doesn't have the large, spindly flywheels the mill engines are known for. I think the 75's had 7' flywheels. This may have been one of the last mill engines made. It appears to have flywheels from the more common oilfield engines and also appears to have been assembled from whatever parts were laying around. I believe this one did see oilfield use. Dad liked it because it has such a huge bore for flywheels that look like they came off a 35-40hp oilfield Superior.
