Omaha Chief engines


Content Tools

I am looking for any information about Omaha Chief engines, especially color and insignia. The nameplate identifies this as an "Omaha Chief Gasoline Engine," 12 HP, by Waterloo Foundry Co., Waterloo, Iowa. It was sold by Parlin & Orendorff Plow Co., Omaha, Neb.

Standing with the engine is a friend, John Barrong, a millwright. Jim Brown, 3410 Grant, Eugene, OR 97405-1716; (541) 345-2122;
