My article this month entails a description of our local 'Farm Fair and a look at a few pictures I have sent along.
Aside from these pictures, there were eight other engines on display. I had my old Fairbanks-Morse engine and a little old Briggs and Stratton.
Mr. Cauffman's nephew, George, displayed a 1934 Sears Farm Master and an L.B. 1 H.C. 1? - 2? Hp. Brian Eckert lent a hand at the display.
David Babcock writes me about my L.B. 1 H.C. and says he has an older L.A. model. Also, he says he can send me a manual and if he would, it would be greatly appreciated I need the manual to help in restoration. Also, David, did you see Mr. Krueger's article last month? There was much information concerning our engines.
Well, that's all for this month. Keep those cards and letters coming.
Economy engine, 5 Hp. Some of the more experienced collectors will notice that it is a changeover from a Webster tri-polar oscillator magneto to a Wico EK mag and spark plug bracket. The bracket came from a junk yard, as did the mageto. This engine has the valve lock feature described before by T. H. Krueger in his article in G.E.M. In the background, there is a Fuller and Thompson which ran the lights for the show.
A 191 Novo, 3 Hp. at 325 r.p.m.
FAIRMONT - Railroad Section Car Engine. Two cycle hit and miss governing, coil and battery ignition. Very smooth running for this type of engine. Every Gasoline Engine Collector should have one of these. Restored and owned by Col. Houston L. Herndon, Sarasota, Fla.
A 12 Hp. Woodpecker engine, 1910, manufactured by the Middletown Machine Co. The owner of all of the engines pictured is Mr. L. E. Cauffman, Jr. of Morrestown, New Jersey.
A 1934 McCormick Deering WK - 40 I bought for a penny a pound. It needs a good deal of work on the motor. I have the fan and carburetor for it. Where can I get decals when I paint it? (See if you can help him out fellows. Anna Mae)
The one lung motors are Z Fairbanks Morse.
A McCormick-Deering 1? Hp. This is a throttle governed engine and putts along very quietly With no objectionable barks.
A 1908 Domestic engine, just like the one in the picture under my last article (Jul-Aug) only this one is 5 years newer. This engine runs nicely but it likes to kick back. Mr. Cauffman says you have to let it know who's boss.
