Smoke Rings

My good friends, I have so many letters this time I will not spout off with any of my gabbing. There are many questions to be answered so get ready and here goes--

KENNETH C. DUDLEY, 9930 E. 36th Street, Independence, Missouri 64052 writes: 'I would appreciate any information on Delco-Remy Power Plant made at Rochester, New York- Model No. 10ES, 31.5 amps, 1000 watt, 1800 rpm and serial number is 393110. Thanks in advance.' Get your pens poised for the answers Boys--we have a lot of folks who are seeking information.

LaVERNE F. SCHROEDER, 8260 Orchard Drive, Denver, Colorado 80221 would appreciate knowing where you can get parts for a Witte 2 HP engine.

PAUL E. JONES of Box 53, Leslieville, Alberta, Canada tells us: 'I enjoy your magazine very much and it has caused me to become a gas engine hobbyist. I have 18 stationary engines and a 1926 Fordson. I have a nice Stover engine which was sold at one time by the T. Eaton Company. The serial number is TB 209835. 3? inch bore and 5 inch stroke. This engine uses a spark plug but the mag and actuating parts are gone. I hope someone will send me a picture of this engine or a drawing of the magneto side so I can get this engine running again & This engine is completely enclosed and is oil bath lubricated.

So Guys, there is another happy member of our GEM family but he needs some help from his brothers.

W. A. (BILL) CLEGG JR., 523 S. Roberts Street, Lima, Ohio 45804 has a question for us: 'Around the first of November, this year, my son 'Duane', age 19 and I found a gas engine that we would like to have some information on. The engine is an Ellis Engine, built in Detroit, Michigan, No. 2319-size 6 HP. This engine is a vertical 2 cycle, water-cooled by an external cooling tank. Bore 4?' x 5' stroke. This engine will run either direction. It just depends on which way you turn the flywheels (double flywheels) when starting it. I may add that it runs just as well one direction as the other. Can anyone tell me about how old this engine is and what was its primary use?
