Delco Engine

34/1/20 Vaughan Motor Works Q. Can anyone provide information on the following drag saw:

LIGHT WEIGHT TYPE D SERIAL NO. 18878 VAUGHAN MOTOR WORKS, PORTLAND, OREGON

The saw uses a single-cylinder, two-cycle engine. Any help would be appreciated. Verne Sullivan, PO Box 704, Mead, WA 99021.

34/1/21 Unidentified Engine Q. See the photo of an unidentified engine. It is a four-cylinder horizontally opposed air cooled four-cycle engine. It is started either with a rope around the front pulley or with an electric starter motor. The carburetor is a Tillotson, and the charging system is from R. S. Phelan Co., Longmeadow, Mass. It uses a Fairbanks Morse magneto. The engine is about 1000cc, and was originally on a generator I believe. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Stephen Coppin, 1 Moorland Gardens, Poulton-le-Fylde, Blackpool, Lancashire, FY6 7HD England.

34/1/22 Delco Engine Q. See the photos of an engine from Delco Light Company, Dayton, Ohio, s/n 200155 and what appears to be the date of 1-30. The only other number I can find is 7S. The engine is four-cylinder air-cooled. Can anyone supply further information on this engine? Any help would be appreciated. David Mozol, 213 Mozol Lane, Oden, AR 71961.

34/1/23 Fairbanks-Morse Q. When was a Fairbanks-Morse engine built, s/n 702907? John Hamilton, 461 Algonquin Pl, Webster Groves, MO 63119.
