Engines from the Jack Branch Engine Club

In the June/July 2014 issue of Gas Engine Magazine, we introduce you to the Jack Branch Engine Club. The club got its start back in 1968 when Junior Henderson purchased a 1916 3 HP Fairbanks-Morse Model Z. Almost 50 years later, Junior's friends and family continue the old iron tradition by holding crank-ups and small shows where they show off their dozens of engines. From common to rare, big to small, the Jack Branch Engine Club loves them all.

Lucky for us, member Rob Gill shares videos of many of their engines finds on his YouTube channel. Below, we feature some of our favorites from the channel, as well as the infamous "High Cam Debate" between club members Gene Fuller and Bob Gill.
