I enjoyed the article in the May-June Gas Engine Magazine about the Brownwall Engine & Pulley Company by Meredith Brison of Millersport, Ohio.

I have one of the small air-cooled engines with the. Serial No. 3521 on the brass name plate. On the plate it also says made in Holland, Michigan. This engine has a three and one-half inch bore and a four inch stroke. The flywheels are fourteen inches in diameter with the name, Brownwall Engine and Pulley Co., Holland Mich. cast in the flywheel. Could anyone who owns a Brownwall engine with these dimensions tell me if this is a one or one and one-half h.p.?

It is evident that they did make some engines at Holland, Mich. with the name and town cast in the flywheel. I didn't realize that this engine was one of the rarer ones until reading Mr. Brison's article. It fits in well with my engine collection which includes a Perkins, Alamo, Field-Brundage, Casey Jones, Jr., and Fairmont.
