5 / 5

We have heard from some more owners of the unusual Edwards this
month, and show pictures of their engines here. Clyde Shook of 434
Mill-brook Rd., Hudson, NY 12534 is owner of #20772, above, left.
Paul Carey of 2979 Raymond Avenue, Latrobe, PA 15650 (e-mail:
ellie0314@aol.com) owns the engine left, below. His is number 17695
with high tension ignition. ‘I found it hard to turn with the
strap on the flat pulley. After installing a 14′ V pulley
between the flat pulley and the engine, it turns easily with a rope
and runs fine.’ One more reader, Robert A. Johnson
(robjohn@arn.net) wrote to mention that ‘one of the unusual
features of the Edwards ignitor engine is it has no linkage to the
ignitors. They are tripped by the pistons. I have both a sparkplug
and ignitor type. All others I have seen were sparkplug.’

A fourth Edwards owner is Richard Carroll of 2632 SE 54th
Avenue, Owatonna, MN 55060. He, too, would appreciate any
information about restoring his engine (left), such as color. (We
know the color is blue, but don’t have a match number to
offer.)

Also on this page are two items from an Edwards brochure sent to
us by Dick Hamp, 1772 Conrad Ave., San Jose, CA 95124- Thank you,
all!
