It is so much fun to receive Gas Engine Magazine. The past one on crank handles (December 2004, page 10) was enlightening. My wife read it and it brought back memories of her dad's farm and the cranking of the gas engine.
I recently bought two engines and would like paint color, year built and any other history your readers might have. They are also on their original trucks.
