Here is an interesting engine built by L. K. Wood of Mendon, Utah. He says in part about it 'I procured a double cylinder steam motor from a Locomobile auto. Got a 1929 chasis from a Chevrolet and also an upright boiler and went to work. After completing the job last fall I gave it the first test. It was amazing what power, efficiency, economy and ease of control. It climbed these hills in the Rockies as well as any tractor built. I then hooked my half size Aultman and Taylor 'Dixie' separator I built, to it and steam pressure raised from 70 to 80 pounds. Drives the separator at full speed on 70 pounds. Can easily travel 10 miles per hour. No clutch, no geared reverse but a Stevenson link. No brake or gear shift. Carry enough coal and water to run half a day. For more particulars and details send stamped envelope to Mr. Wood.
