COVER

On the engine is Frank A. Brown, owner. In front of engine with
long whiskers is Aaron Howser, next Billy Hare and the fartherest
one is Ball Clark, owner of silo filler.

As you can see, it is a V type two cylinder engine with the
cylinders nearly vertical at a 90 degree angle. The crank shaft
runs lengthwise underneath the boiler with a drive shaft and two
universals to one front axle with a ring gear and pinion. This axle
drives the other two wheels by connecting rods. The back wheels are
arranged the same, with all eight wheels pulling.
