A reader from Quebec, Canada, questioned about the use of Ford parts in gas engines in the December/January issue of Gas Engine Magazine. My grandfather had an orchard supply flyer, which pictured such engines.

In Wendel's book, the Holland is mentioned, but not pictured.

In GEM, I noticed the mention of an "extremely rare and beautiful 3 HP Holland engine." I would consider these Hollands to be quite neat.

Included in my grandfather's flyer was information on an engine by Arlington (at right), the image is of inferior quality, but it claims to use many Ford parts. It is horizontal and hopper-cooled. This information is dated 1924.
