FROM THE MIDWEST


| November/December 1967


112 So. 5th St., St. Charles, Illinois 60174

Just a few lines to let you know we in the Mid-West are still concerned about facts. In the last issues of Gas there is a man talking about the Maytag Gas Engines. Well here are some facts right from the Maytag Co. (The Single cylinder engines were manufactured from 1911 through Aug. 1937 at which time, production was begun on a twin cylinder engine which was manufactured through Sep. of 1952.)

Now then since the unfortunate end of production on Gas engines, the parts have become very limited. There are still a revised list of parts available for both the single and twin cylinder models. All request for information can be sent to; THE MAYTAG CO., c/o Mr. Don Ryder, Supervisor, Washer-Freezer Service, Newton, Iowa 50208.

Here are a few pictures taken at the WILL COUNTY THRESHERMEN'S ASS'N. Steam Engine and Threshing Show, held Aug. 3, 4, 5, 6, 1967 at Francis Field, New Lenox, III. The weather was great and the crowds larger than ever. They Threshed, Sawed, Dynamometer, Fans, Cringing, shelling, plowing, and Paraded all Equipment move-able.



Pictured are some of the tractors the fellows had there with a good bunch of Gas Poppers such as 10 HP. International Gas Engine. 15 HP. Fair-Banks Morse 8HP. International, Sandwich, Briggs, John Deere to mention a few.

4 Cylinder Hart-Parr Gas Tractor, 28-50 Hp. built in 1929 and owned by Franklin Weber of Manteno, Illinois.
