The post in the August/September issue from Cliff Jennings about the Pine Tree milking engine prompted me to crawl into the back of one of my engine buildings and refresh my memory of what I had traded for 15 or 20 years ago. I will now drag it out and put it close to the top of my to-do list. While my decal is more readable than Cliff’s, it is not perfect by any means and I am wondering if there are any reproductions of a good one. It does show a milking bucket under the cow. The decal reads, “Cows Adopted Child.” Does anyone have manuals for this engine? Also, does anyone have plans for using a 12-volt starter and some sort of friction wheel for easier starting of flywheel engines?
