Old Iron in the Wild, Wild West

Apache Junction spring show serves up classic old iron.

1916 Monitor 1-1/4 hp engine
Gary Covert, Cottonwood, Ariz., showed a very unusual display: a 1916 Monitor 1-1/4 hp engine complete with original pump jack and drinking water attachment. “I was told it was used in a park,” he says. Repainted and running when he bought it, the engine was built by Baker Mfg. Co., Evansville, Wis.
