The Saskachimo Show at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan turned out very
good. One of their displays is this 1925 Avery gas engine, four
cylinders; size of engine is 40-80 HP. Courtesy of Arlo Jurney,
F3-520-75 Avenue, S.W., Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2V 0S2.

This engine was made for Deere and Webber Company by the Root
and Van Dervoort Engineering Company patented July 1903, May 1904,2
HP, 450 RPM, Serial #BL 12714. It was found in a neighbor’s
grove nearly three years ago, where it had sat for about 30 years
or more. It is a hit and miss type ignitor, spark coil, and
battery-fired. It is now in running condition and is painted green
which I think is the right color as Deere and Webber Company was an
early part of John Deere Company. Courtesy of Martin F. Kruse,
