From the late 1970s through the 1980s, one of the most familiar names in Gas Engine Magazine was Bud Motry. He was a frequent contributor and provided many in-depth articles regarding gas engine restoration.

His booklet "Antique Engine Repair" is often cited as a favorite resource among collectors. That, paired along with the fact that it's been out of print for many years make finding a copy pretty tough.

Bud passed away in April 2008, but he left behind a wealth of information through the articles he submitted to GEM. The following is a categorized list of links to the articles Bud contributed over the years.
