Cathedral Carousel Engine Needs Repair

| December/January 2000

We had a request the other day from Patricia Cate of the All Hallows Guild at Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., telephone 202-244-6583. She is seeking assistance in the repair of a carousel built in 1890 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

It is a county fair type of carousel, powered by a 4 cylinder hand crank start gasoline engine. The engine uses four sparkplugs and a magneto distributor. The group seeks to repair rather than replace the engine. If anyone in the D.C. area is capable of repairing this engine for the Cathedral, please call Patricia at the above number, or write 5001 Glenbrook Rd., Washington, DC 20016.
