Hi Wonderful People out in Gas Land! I know you are all having a great time this summer comparing engines and stories and renewing or making new friendships. We have gotten so many letters for this column and questions that I won't take up your time with my idle chatter, so we'll get into these interesting writings at once.

From CHARLES L. CAWOOD, Styring House, Pocklington, York, England comes this letter in the hopes he will get some answers.

'I am at present engaged in forming a collection of 'Amanco' stationary engines made by the Associated Manufacturers Co., Waterloo, Iowa, U. S. A.

These engines were in times past the most popular of any make on the British market, very large numbers being imported up to about 1923.



There appears to be an amazing profusion of types, names, and variations and also there seems to be little logic in their method of engine numbering. This makes it very difficult to date any individual engine and I am wondering therefore, if there is among your contributors or readers, anyone who has made a study of these engines, and who could provide me with some information on the various types produced, the dates, relative engine numbers etc. Also who formed the Associated Manufacturers Co. and between what dates did the Company operate. The Agents in this country were called Associated Manufacturers Co. and operated from various addresses in and around London until about 1950. At one time or another they were agents for Waterloo Boy tractors, called the Overtime in the U. K., Case tractors and Amanco and Hinman milking machines.

Any information about the Company and the engines would be most gratefully received by me.
