Check out this reader's letter about an photo in the April/May issue.
That’s a 6hp M in the photo, not a 1-1/2hp. The give- away is the “ring” on the skid, only the 6hp and 10hp skidded M had this ring.

Thank you, Craig, for your correction. This photo was previously discussed on the Hit-and-Miss page of the April/May 2021 issue of Gas Engine Magazine. I was going off the printing on this period photo, but it’s very possible that it was labeled incorrectly. — Editor
