I recently found this Des Moines gas engine. I was wondering if anyone else had one. I think one showed up at Waukee in the '70s. I remember a man saying his engine should have sold by now, and that it was made in Des Moines. It was aircooled, so it must have been like mine. Matthew Guy Clarke, P.O. Box 314, Norwalk, IA 50211
