West Campton N.H.

It is June 23, a very nice day in West Campton.

The first engines came in at about 9 a.m., and they kept coming until about noon. We had 4 or 5 old cars and about 30 engines.

I had my 15 H.P. International Mogul, that I had just gotten running after a long restoration, as it had not run since 1948. One of the flywheels had been moved six miles away and used for a boat anchor. I also had my 8 H.P. sandwich engine out.

Carleton and Elroy Ekdahl from Manchester, N. H. brought their Charter engine.

People came from Mass., Vermont, and N. H. Everyone had a very good time. We are going to have our meet this year on June 1, 1975.

There are campgrounds and inns nearby for those who want to come on May 31, and visit the White Mountains of N. H.

What is It?

This is a side shaft engine with a flyball governor. At one time this engine had a magneto that ran off the one cam lobe. I believe that it pushed a plunger up in the magneto.

There also was a lot of nickel plating on it.

This engine is about C.

I sure hope that someone can help me.
