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.
