The busy season

Well, the snow is gone and a long winter is finally behind us. And a quick look at the Farm Collector Show Directory reveals that the busy season is here. Every weekend from now until the end of October, you'll be able to find someplace to show off your favorite engines.

Things have also been pretty busy here at Gas Engine Magazine, and I thought I'd take a moment to fill you in on what we've been up to.

If you're a frequent visitor to www.gasenginemagazine.com, you'll notice that we've added some Web exclusive content that you won't find in the magazine.

Thanks to Rob Skinner and the Western Antique Power Associates, we have some tips on cleaning and tuning up your engines after their long winter's nap. I think everyone will agree that when safety is concerned, it never hurts to have a tip sheet like Rob's around to make sure everything is good to go.



We also have a piece written by Wayne D. Rowell that talks about the background and restoration of a 5 HP Galloway. The article is actually the sequel to a story that ran in GEM in 1993 about a 5 HP New Era engine that replaced the Galloway in a Vermont machine shop.

And finally, we've begun a multi-part photo series documenting an amazing project that Stan Ellerbeck, of Exelsior Springs, Mo., is wrapping up. Stan is making his own steam-to-gas engine conversion, combining the bed of an 1867 Gibbs & Sterrett steam engine with a Bessemer cylinder, and he's been taking pictures every step along the way. We'll be adding a new photo gallery every few weeks and the project will culminate in a feature story in the magazine about the finished engine.
