Just a few lines to let you know we in the Mid-West are still concerned about facts. In the last issues of Gas there is a man talking about the Maytag Gas Engines. Well here are some facts right from the Maytag Co. (The Single cylinder engines were manufactured from 1911 through Aug. 1937 at which time, production was begun on a twin cylinder engine which was manufactured through Sep. of 1952.)

Now then since the unfortunate end of production on Gas engines, the parts have become very limited. There are still a revised list of parts available for both the single and twin cylinder models. All request for information can be sent to; THE MAYTAG CO., c/o Mr. Don Ryder, Supervisor, Washer-Freezer Service, Newton, Iowa 50208.

Here are a few pictures taken at the WILL COUNTY THRESHERMEN'S ASS'N. Steam Engine and Threshing Show, held Aug. 3, 4, 5, 6, 1967 at Francis Field, New Lenox, III.
