Jim McQuatters. Jim tied the wheel and it stayed in a circle. Kids loved it.

1918 Fairbanks Morse Z. All I did was put the head on and take two years to realize how the governor worked!

Brown Castle Ranch Santa Fe, New Mexico 87505

These are pictures of the annual engine show held at the Santa
Fe County Fair, August 11, 12, 13. It was announced that the
engines had cancelled out!

After sending out flyers, I began to get my engines ready. The
Jack of All Trades blew a head gasket and then blew another one!
Now that we’re out of asbestos, we made a head gasket from tin
from a printing press! Now, Jim’s already here. We go to set up
etc., thanks to all these people and engines for showing up and
saving the ‘little show that could.’ Jack of All Trades ran
fine.

Everybody, come on down August 2001!

The Monitor H J 3 HP found on a ranch in southern New Mexico.
The people said it never ran! After about 40 hours heating, oiling,
we found the rings were too small. Otto Gas Engine sent rings (nice
man, Dave) and new motor. 1944?

1907 Fairbanks Morse Jack of All Trades 6 HP hit & miss.
This engine has come back from rust. It was partially restored
before I got it four years ago.

1908 Jacobsen restored from bad shape by Jim McQuatters, a real
engine restorin’ guy Jim is, from Bernaillo, New Mexico.

We were running engines in the yard when a man stopped and said,
‘I have one I’ve been keeping fifty years and never heard
it run!’ 4 HP Bulldog, Paul Esquibel.

Unidentified engine found in abandoned mine in Golden, New
Mexico. Joe Salazar of Albuquerque. Boss of the farm? Hmmm…looks
kind of Associated?

This man just showed up. Don’t even know how he knew! Larry
Presser, 6 HP Witte, Las Vegas, New Mexico.
