42/6/1: Le Roi Engine
Perhaps one of the Gas Engine Magazine readers can provide me
with some information for this engine made by Le Roi Co.,
Milwaukee, Wis. The pump was made by Barnes Mfg. Co., Mansfield,
Ohio (size 4, Model L 302). Jim Fitzgerald, 208 Governor Stoughton
Lane, Milton, MA 02186-3713; (617) 512-0100.
I need some help. I think I have an early Caldwell-Hollowell
hit-and-miss engine. It has a 4-1/2-inch bore. I would like some
information on the engine. Thank you. Edward Williams, 10187

42/6/3: Delco Little Joe Gen Set
I just got a Delco Little Joe Gen Set (6-volt, 150 watt). It is
in very sad shape, but because it was something my grandfather (or
great-grandfather) had, I would like to try to restore it. I am
looking for parts and or information about it. R. MacLeod, 271

42/6/4: Globe Electric and an unidentified engine
I have a Globe light plant with engine no. G 3262, 3 HP, (above)
1,240 RPM. The tag indicates the engine is from Globe Electric Co.,
What make is the engine on the light plant? Above the coil, wire
can be seen going to points at the end of the camshaft. There is
also a linkage to the flyweights inside the flywheel, and an oval
gas tank with brass brackets to the cylinder head. It is a side
valve engine and the cylinder head appears to be full of lime
deposits. The casting number on the cylinder head is GM10.
I am also wondering what the engine in the background is.
Detailed photos are shown below. It has an enclosed crank case and
an oval opening in the cooling tank. There is no crank, piston,
sleeve, connecting rod, cylinder head, valve train or nameplate.
