BOOK REVIEW:

The Fuller & Johnson Story

Content Tools

This new publication, written by Verne W. Kindschi and available just in time for the Great Fuller &. Johnson Rally in Baraboo, Wisconsin August 21-23, 1992, boasts over 140 pages of information and photographs about all aspects of the machinery produced by F&J.

Kindschi, a leading collector of Fuller &. Johnson engines, data, and miscellanea, has put together a great deal of information in a very orderly manner. He starts the book with biographies of company founders Morris E. Fuller and John A. Johnson, details the formation of their partnership, and proceeds through several chapters devoted to the various models of machinery which the company manufactured.

Engine models having chapters devoted to them include oil-cooled, vertical hopper-cooled, double efficiency, 'People's Priced', Models N, K, NA, NB, NC, ND, KA, and NK, as well as farm pump, light plant, and radiator-cooled engines.

Each chapter is enhanced by clear, well-labeled black-and-white photos, over 250 in all.

In addition to the company history and product line description, Kindschi has also included a final chapter titled 'Resources for the Collector.' This chapter includes important information regarding serial numbers, paint colors, printed resources such as decals and owners and parts manuals presently available, and major parts sources for the collector restoring a Fuller & Johnson engine.

Several pages are left open at the end of the book, where the collector can record his own notes.
