Unknown Diesel Engine Information

In the April/May Gas Engine Magazine, Volume 50, No. 3 on page 3, was a picture of an unknown diesel engine. It was made in China or other Eastern country and was imported by Engine Master Power Products  in West Quincy, Missouri. The picture shows a model ZH1110 20 hp engine. I sold some of ...

A Better Gib Key Puller

I noticed in a recent issue of GEM where someone was attempting to pull out a gib key with a tapered wedge. This method is not too efficient, as the friction between the flywheel and the head of the key is likely as much or more than the wedging effect. The pullers in the picture (see above and ...

Salesman Sample Olds Engine
