Old Binder Guy Posted February 13, 2014 Share Posted February 13, 2014 Kevin, I've never seen a Port Huron gas tractor image before. Thanks for sending that along. Ralph, I'd not noticed that rear spring arrangement either, on the back of that 1931 Ford Truck. Interesting. This first color engraving is from one of my Port Huron catalogs. This must have been a Port Huron dealer's thing as it is a cardboard cutout of a very early Port Huron, and I borrowed it from SmokStak. This last one isn't an ad, but a photo of Roger Byrne and myself in Minnesota about three years ago. The unusual part of this Port Huron steam engine we're operating, it isn't a tandem compound, as was bragged about in the Port Huron ad I posted last night. This is one of their rare 20 hp simple engines. I believe there are two still existing. And all of their simple engines were equipped with a piston valve, as evidenced by the smaller "head" at the left of the large one.
