Engine with many tags


| October 2006


Can someone enlighten me on this engine and saw rig?

The engine carries several tags, summarized as: Challenge Co., Batavia Ill., M150, 5 HP, serial no. 28405; J. Comer Jones Power & Pump Co., Boston, Mass., and Wico magneto.

A spark plug is in place. The engine sits on a four-iron-wheeled frame with towbar/hitch and a 24-inch (approximate) diameter saw with rocker table. An auxiliary flywheel is center-mounted on the assembly frame and belt-driven from the saw shaft.

Any information on this engine and its rig or tips on information sources would be greatly appreciated. Chuck Lowman, 311 Lake Road, Vergennes, VT 05491.
