My dad has owned a 12 HP 1915 International Titan engine for the past 20 years. He found it in Frederick, Md., in a barn. The only article that has made mention of such an engine was from GEM in 1969 called "Titan Country." The article is about the actual purchase of the engine and asks the readers for information on it. Oddly enough a friend of my dad's located that engine from the article and purchased it.

Is there any information that readers may know about this engine? The cart appears to have been a self-propelled cart at one time. He was told by the previous owner it was the original cart. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Dawn Kennell, Finksburg, Md. Owner: Woodrow "Buddy" Knight, 1401 Tank Road, Finksburg, MD 21048.

I used to spend summers with my grandpa in Frederick county. He had a man named Mason who would bring a engine with those big old ugly wheels to his farm to run a Bell City barn thresher. Mr Mason was killed on a tractor accident in 1959. Someone stole the engine around 1960 and it was never found to my knowledge. I was born in 1950 and used to love to watch that old engine putt putt. A am sure this is the same engine because of the oversized wheels under the engine.
