Here's my 3 HP Samson, which was raffled off at the '93 EDGE&TA National meeting. I acquired it from Ken Holloman. (Branch 13, retired) in Marysville, north of Sacramento. Ken had already done a lot of work on it, like relieving the cylinder. The exhaust pipe runs up through the water tank and produces a wonderfully mellow chugging sound. A distinctive feature of the Samson is the round leather belt that runs from the flywheel to the fly ball governor. The Samson has a selector valve which allows running on kerosene once the engine warms up.
