Built by William E. Johnson of R. 4, Box 65, Portage, Wisconsin
53901, last winter. It was built entirely of scrap parts found in
Mr. Johnson’s shop, except for the spark plug and timing gears
which he bought. He casted the cylinder head from scrap
aluminum.

This is a hit and miss and runs very nice, according to Mr.
Johnson, who spent over one hundred hours building the engine.
