Smoke Rings

HI - G.E.M. Family --are you busy?? I'll bet no busier than I am right now-what with so many ads to get squared away and articles (for which we give thanks, even if I can't get them in as fast as I'd like to) and a wedding in July (our daughter, Keli) and getting Tommy to the Little League games and the orthodonist, and on and on etc. WHEW! Think I'll just take a little break--no need to go on with my busy life, as there are many letters from our gas enthusiasts.

ROBERT MAC WILLIAMS, R.D. 2, Newport, New Hampshire 03773 would like to know the factory valve timing, tappet clearance, plus gap and the color on an Edwards 2 cylinder engine and how does one start it? He says the one lungers are getting scarce - he has four. (There's a lot of questions in a few lines there -Good Luck, Guys.)

DAVE BABCOCK, R.D. 3, Box 673, Cass City, Michigan 48726 sends this message of particular interest to some of you: 'In the March-April G.E.M., I had Sattley decals advertised. I'm presently sold out, but the reason I'm writing is that a number of Sattley decals were sent out that were of poor quality. If you received any of these decals and would like a refund, please send the decals back for a full prompt refund.' (Sounds fair enough).

HANS SJOBOEN (SHOBEN), 221 So. Garfield Street, Tacoma, Washington 98444 says: 'I enjoy your magazine very much, it is interesting to hear what others are doing along this line of hobby. I have these engines: 2-1/2 HP Economy, 4 HP Cushman, 1-1/2 HP Waterloo Boy, 4 HP Fairbanks Morse, 2 cyl. Maytag and 1 cyl. Maytag.

Model T Fords are my hobby also and I get a lot of enjoyment from them. I have a 1913 Speedster, a 1920 Touring, a 1925 Fordor Sedan and am just now starting to restore a 1929 Model A Sport Coupe. I had one 45 years ago!

Lone Scouts of America is also one of my pet hobbies, many Old Timer former members do not know there has existed an alumni group for many years and there are hundreds of members throughout the USA. I attended a National Reunion in Carson City, Nevada, last year and there were over 200 in attendance! And what a spirit of friendliness prevails when these old timer boys get together! There are no dues or rules, just an offer of old time friendship and journey back to boyhood days! I would enjoy to hear from any former members and give them more information about this Legion.
