Just found this post while doing a search so my comments are probably outdated.

TH gas mills were factory powered by 24 hp Onan engines. A mill of that vintage has no doubt been repowered.

By their own admission at the time, TH setworks  were substandard. When I bought a second mill in 2002, I asked about equipping it with setworks. Everyone at the company knew me well because I would often saw for the lumber company that shared the Timber Harvester complex. They assured me I was much faster setting the head manually than the set works moved. When you get enough stick a time on the machine, you will find it is as easy as previously described above.

At least I am, hence why I am trying to work on building a new TH Setworks from scratch.
