A Brief Word

| October/November 1991

26/10/8 Unidentified Engine Q. I have acquired a single cylinder engine with no identification except for 'J Comer Jones Power and Water.' The only other clue is the hopper casting number of J 101. Any help will be appreciated. Robin Lewis, 1820 No. County Rd 23, Bellvue, CO 80512.

A. A couple of photographs would be most helpful, and if this is a vendor engine that was built by another company, it would be imperative. Send us a couple of photos when you can, and we'll see what we can do.
