| September/October 1967

I get a lot of good from the GEM and must say the page 'What Is It?' is a lot of help to so many of us. Again, I would like to run another picture on this page and I'm sure I will get help as I did in Jan.-Feb. issue, on the Mystery Engine.

This is my M-Steiner gasoline, engine built in Dayton, Ohio. There is no serial number or no Hp. listed on the name plate. It has 4?' bore and 4?' stroke, 20' flywheels, hit and miss. Has a spark plug. Fan and carburetor are needed as they are missing. If you have any information on this kind of engine, please let me know.

Pictured here is an engine of about 1? H.P., 3-55/8 in. bore and 5 in. stroke - throttled governor, battery and coil ignition. It looks like it was a very simple built engine, not using too many parts. The gas tank shown is just an added tank to complete the. picture, but it must have been something in this order, being that the feed pipe extends into the corner of this tank. There is no trace of it ever having had a name plate, but on the opposite side of the water tank is a trace of a decal.
