  • Tractor and John Deere plow

Schlosser & Shook-Better known as AS&S Gas Engine Restorers, Box 485, Waterloo, Indiana 46793.

Big 4 Tractor and John Deere plow breaking prairie, south of Winner in 1910. Two plows were removed as eight were too much to handle and make any time. Outfit was new at the time photo was taken. I still have the plow. I still have both breaker and stubble bottoms.

W. E. Sparks is shown to left and E. E. Ely is near steering wheel. Don't know the boy but he is no doubt a granddad now.

May we introduce ourselves to your fine organization of gas engine hobbiests? We are Albright, Schlosser and Shook and we became interested about a year ago with one engine.

A brief background of our people is as follows. Vince Albright operates a body and paint shop and is a skilled mechanic as well. Paul Schlosser operates a general garage and has spent many years as a mechanic on engines, both steam and gasoline, and is the master mechanic of our organization. Myself, Henry Shook, have worked with the old gas engines as a boy and operated tractors from the old Titans and Moguls as well as the old Fordsons. Currently, I operate an Automotive Parts Jobbing house, equipped with machining facilities as well as cleaning, expediting parts, that can be altered to serve our needs.

With these facilities and skills we feel that collectively we can contribute much to the restoration and preservation of gas engines.
