28/6/14 Unidentified Engine. Q See the photos of an engine that is unidentified. There are no markings, and the carburetor and fuel tank are missing. Any help will be appreciated. Dick Schallau, 601 West 11th St., Spencer, IA 51301.

28/6/15 Aladdin Duplex. Q I have recently acquired an Aladdin Duplex generator by Heintz & Kaufman, San Francisco, California. It is a Type B-10 and is powered by a Briggs & Stratton FH engine. The generator is from Harris Electric Co., 256 California St., San Francisco, California. I need to know how to align the two rotors in this generator for proper operation. Other information on this generator would also be appreciated. There is no voltage or wattage rating on any of the nameplates. Bob Learned, 1754 Curtner Ave., San Jose, CA 95124.

A. Can anyone supply the needed information on this rather unique unit?

28/8/16 Old Show Buttons One day my wife said, 'Why don't you do something with all these show buttons? Make a clock or something.'

Here is a picture of the finished product. Maybe someone else would like to make his own. Harry Butler 3237 W. North view, Phoenix, AZ 85051.

28/8/17 Gardner Motor. Q I have a Gardner Motor made in St. Louis. It is a two-cycle with a 2 x 3 inch bore and stroke. I would like to know what kind of ignition was used, and whether it had one or two flywheels. Any information on this engine will be greatly appreciated. See the photo.
