A Brief Word

| May/June 2001

Mr. Wendel is guiding his tour in Australia this month, but we want our readers to get attention to their questions, so we will rely heavily on our many experts out there to help us.

We might also take this opportunity to say that we are now receiving more questions than ever, via the handy use of e-mail. In fact, we receive several each day, and often have a hard time keeping up with the demand since we are generally involved in the various tasks of publishing magazines. So, if you are one of our internet questioners, please be patient with us sometimes it takes awhile for us to find your answers. We do have a lot of great resources in our office, but sometimes the books simply don't have the right answers in them! There's also the possibility that a request has the appearance of 'junk mail,' when it comes in via e-mail. It is helpful if you identify an engine or tractor name in your 're' space, so we don't assume that you're sending one of the daily low-cost mortgage requests we get!

And we shall begin with:

36/5/1 Kohler Power Plant Q. I am trying to repair an old Kohler power plant. Can anyone tell me where to find a model number? It has a four cylinder inline valve in head engine. The head is 12 inches long; piston is two inches in diameter. Crankshaft goes all the way through the arm of the generator. Thank you. Jim Kountz, HCR 271-2017, Glasgow, MT 59230.

36/5/2 Stover, Novo Engines Q. Harvey D. Cain of 70621 M-62 S., Edwardsburg, MI 49112 sent us several pictures of his engines, with the following questions and comments.

36/5/2A is a Stover KE 850. I need a conversion kit for 859. Any help? This engine was built by Stover Engine Works for Brackett, Shaw & hunt Co. of Southworth, New Hampshire and Boston, Massachusetts.
