Above and at right are two engines owned by Carl Guretse, 304
Perkiomen Ave., Lansdale, PA 19446. The Fairbanks-Morse is one that
he purchased in the spring of 1993. At the time he wrote, he said
it ran very nicely but he intended to make another cart for it.

The 1919 Associated is one that he restored. It is a
13/4 HP Chore Boy. This engine has battery
ignition and runs very well.

Mr. Guretse said that he looks forward to his GEM coming every
month, so we hope he’ll enjoy seeing these pictures!

Truman and Shirley Birk of Jackson, Missouri, are the owners of

Rt. 3, 206 Alpine, Cape Girardeau, MO 63701. This tractor, a 1915

brought by raft down the Mississippi River to Wittenburg, Missouri,
and driven from there to a farm a couple of miles east of Oak

Shirley’s father used it for pea hulling and corn shredding
for many of the area farmers for several years. He gave it to his
son-in-law for his birthday, over 25 years ago. Truman got it fully
restored in 1991.
