Info request for Lauson Power Products engines

| August 2008

I have been collecting engines for about six years. I started with my great-grandfather's 3 HP Hercules engine. I also have an Edwards 2-cylinder. Space is limited, as is money, so I have decided to work mostly on small engines. After picking up a few small engines, I have taken a particular liking toward old 2-cycle engines. I have a few Clintons, two West Bends and a few Power Products. Above the rest I have taken a liking to Lauson Power Products engines. There is no good source of information about them, so far as I can find. There is no real history written about them and, while they were a "common" engine, they are few and far between. If possible I would like to become well informed about them - kind of like Glen Karch is about Hercules engines.

I am hoping that readers can provide information about them, perhaps even provide a source of parts. R. Mac Leod,
