A gas engine fan writes to Gas Engine Magazine. 

Just a note to express my feelings toward "The GEM Magazine". It's just what the doctor ordered for a 1-cylinder gas engine fan.

I have approximately 70 engines from Maytag washer engines up to a 1-cylinder oil well engine made by "Bessemer", 6000 lbs., 22 hp, 180 rpm. I also have a few tractors, 2 F-12 Farmalls, 1-30 International, W-30 McCormick Deering, 10-20 McCormick Deering, a couple of trucks, 1928 White Stake Winch, 1930 White moving van. All my engines, tractors and trucks have not been fully restored so I find your "GEM" Magazine and The Iron Men Album Magazine very interesting and helpful. The stories are nice, too. I have no complaints, all praise. Please keep up the good work.
