A. We've had some information on these
grinders but find nothing now. Can anyone be of help.
30/1/4 Thanks to John R. Heath, 494 Twp Rd 232,
Sullivan, OH 44880 for sending a photocopy of the Victor Traction
Trucks, made by the Victor Traction Gear Co., Loudonville, Ohio.
This was a chassis to which a farmer might mount his own gas
engine. The Victor was made in several sizes, but we have no
30/1/5 Unidentified Engine
Q. Can anyone identify the engine in the photo?
If so, where can 1 obtain further information on it? Any help will
be appreciated. Donald Hentges, 45719 - 263rd St., Humboldt, SD
A. This is a Hercules. For further information
and some excellent books on Hercules, contact: Glenn Karch, 20601
Old State Road, Haubstadt, IN 47639.
30/1/6 Termaat & Monahan Q. See the photo
of a 1 HP T & M engine; these little engines are quite rare
here in England. It appears on page 509 of American Gas Engines.
Perhaps readers might like to know that most parts are available
from a foundry over here. Could anyone advise me if decals are
available for this engine, as well as its proper color? Thanking
you in advance, T. J. M. Keenan, 'Ohope,' 23 Byron Avenue,
Margate, Kent, CT9 1TU England.
30/1/7 Racine Sattley Q. See the photo of a 2
HP Racine-Sattley, as shown on pages 315 and 406 of American Gas
Engines. I got it from a fellow who found it on Grand Turk
Island in the West Indies. Evidently, someone tried to disassemble
it with a hammer, be cause many parts are broken or missing. I
tried to locate parts through the classified with no success, and
am now toying with the idea of fabricating the missing parts.
Can anyone give me an idea of the relative rarity of this
engine? Since the entire governor is missing, will a governor from
a later model Sattley work? Any information or assistance will be
greatly appreciated. Woody Sins, 3 Edna Ter., New Hartford, NY
30/1/8 Monta Mower Company Q. I have a lawn
mower made by the Monta Mower Co., Traverse City, Michigan, and
patented on August 21, 1923. I have no other information on
it, and would appreciate hearing from anyone who is able to help.

A. The patent in question is 1,465,279 issued
to Hubert Howard Montague; see the Patent Office Gazette extract in
30/1/9 Witte Information Needed Q. I have a
Witte 4 HP engine, s/n 56889. The engine is complete except for the
magneto, and I was wondering if you could tell me what magneto was
used on this engine. There is a factory magneto mounting bracket on
the engine, but a Wico EK magneto will not fit on the bracket. Any
help would be appreciated. Michael C. Williams, 726 Groff Ave.,
Elizabethtown, PA 17022.
