Smoke Rings

| November/December 1980

Hi to all the family of Gas Engine Magazine-well, we're into the Holiday Season before you know it. My how the years do fly-the older we get, the faster they go-so if you haven't started on your Christmas list, why not now-get started, but then leave some Christmas shopping and all the trimming and things we do for nearer to Christmas-and above all, let's not forget the true meaning of this Holy Day. We tend to be so worldly, we too often miss the real presence of Christmas-And now onto all these letters-I know many of you are anxiously awaiting answers and suggestions through this column.

Get ready! Here come the questions! BRAD L. RODENKIRCH 3674 Badger Road, Kewaskum, Wisconsin 53040 writes: 'I've been a subscriber to GEM for quite a number of years and this is the first question I have sent. I recently obtained an early engine manufactured by the Rawleigh and Schryer Co. of Freeport, Illinois. It is a 1? HP hit and miss, serial number AA11995. I've never heard of this one. Is it fairly rare? What are its colors? How old is it, and are decals available? Your help will be appreciated. Thank you!' (He's talking to you folks for I don't know the answer-so if you can help him-please do, he'll be really happy.)

LOUIS MILLER, 807 Pine Street, Georgetown, Texas 78626 would like to know what color green was used on an 8-16 Mogul and what color were the wheels? Says Louis, 'Help! Please!'

JAY TOUSEY, Box 205, Suring, Wisconsin 54174 just acquired a 25-45 cross motor mount Case tractor. Serial number T300170. 'I enjoy reading your magazine and I am looking for someone to correspond with that has an engine like mine.'

Next statement comes from RICHARD NIELSEN, 9122 W. 66th Place, Arvada, Colorado 80002: 'I would like to say thanks to all the readers who answered by last request for information. Once again I need help!

I have a Briggs & Stratton Power Charger complete and running. The nameplate is missing so I would like to know approximate age and need the wiring diagram and how it works for the Power Charger.
