Readers' Engine Questions

| September/October 2003

38/9/1: Unidentified weed cutter.

I recently acquired this weed cutter, and I'm looking for any information from you or GEM readers as to how old it is, what horsepower it is, etc. On the mower it says 'Mono Power Saw and Mowers' manufactured by Mono Manufacturing Co., Springfield, Mo., Model BJ-3, serial no. 2075. Power comes from a Clinton engine, serial no. 2807283B, Model A 801 COB. I have never heard of this company and would welcome any information. Thanks. Gregg Simpson, 4271 Rutland-Dunn Road, Oregon, WI 53575.

38/9/2: Unidentified Engine

Does anybody know what this engine is? I bought it at a yard sale, and there are no markings or nameplate on it. Thanks in advance for any help. Richard LaRusso, 28 Hine Road, New Milford, CT 06776.

38/9/3: Holloway Mower

Robert Comer sends in some photographs of an interesting little mower, hoping someone out there might have more information on the piece. The only identification on the mower is a plate giving operating instructions and noting the engine as built by McCullough of Los Angeles, Calif.
