Holland autotype engines: an 8 HP above and a 4 HP at right. The Arlington engine is below.

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.
