A. We'll certainly concede that our book
American Gas Engines has its shortcomings, with the greatest one
being that a great many engines were not included. Also, at the
time of the research, we were unaware of the Ward-Bullseye
nameplate change, so nothing was mentioned. We think it admirable
that Mr. Currie is attempting to set up a registry and encourage
all of the above owners to contact him with the necessary
22/1/26 Q. Can anyone supply information on the
hot air engine in the below photograph? I need help in identifying
it-the only identifying marks are the letters E.E.E.C. stamped on
several of the castings. Randy E. Schwerin, RR 2, Sumner, IA
A. Having almost no information on file
regarding hot air engines, we turn this one out to our readers for
22/1/27 Q. I have a Superior 25 HP engine and
would like to know the years built and proper color for same.
Bob Coffey, 1201 Longview Drive, Rogers, AR 72756.
22/1/28 Q. I am restoring a Huber HS tractor,
s/n V1883 or 11883. It uses a Waukesha engine, 4? x 6?, 1150 rpm.
Can you give me any information on this tractor or tell me where to
look. Dale Grafton, RR 3, Box 74, Loogootee, IN 47553.
A. The HS, 27-42 tractor was apparently built
during 1935 to at least 1938. We do not have a serial number list
for Huber, although we are confident that some of our readers might
have this information
22/1/29 Q. We have acquired a Weber winch
engine with the sideshaft and vertical flyball governor. It is
about 10-15 horse power. The ignitor is missing, so we would like
to correspond with anyone having a similar engine. Willis
Boyer, Box 245, Lolo, MT 59847. Phone 406 273-0748.
22/1/30 Q. Can you identify this engine? (See
below photo). The tag reads: 600 rpm; H.P. 1? XK; s/n 14155. The
part numbers have a 'GE' prefix, with the flywheel reading
GE4021-A. Date of manufacture is 9/10/29. The engine is red and
uses a Wico EK magneto. Any help will be appreciated. Gary
Anderson, 675 Clear Ave., St. Paul, MN 55106.
A. Despite the part numbers given in your
letter, the nameplate tells the story-this appears to be a Hercules
22/1/31 Q. I have a small Delco plant, sup
posed to be 12-16 volts. It is missing the fuel tank and air duct.
The only number I can find is T4962 at the top of the crankcase,
just below where the air duct sits on top of ridge. The brass tag
is not legible, but this unit looks like a small 850 of the
1920's. It has no carburetor, gas enters at the edge of the
casting with a choke handle. Would like more information and a
picture showing how gas tank is mounted. Did this unit have a
number designation? Harley Carman, 42142 Upper Berlin Dr.,
Lebanon, OR 97355.
