First this book give a wide overview of how Farm Gas Engines from the period work:
*The fuels available for the engines with the pro's and con's of each.
*Learn the difference in efficiencies between Steam and Gas.
*Understand the principles of the early gas engine through the chapters on mechanical construction, the principles of operation and understanding horsepower.
Then, in order to deepen your knowledge on how the specific engines work it teaches about the differences in the engine Cooling, The Valve Systems, Carburetors, Electric Ignitions, Governors, Lubrication, Mufflers and More!
It explains the different cooling systems like:
*Screen and Air

*Electromagnets and Generators
*Low tension and high tension
*Timing the ignition
*High Tension Magneto Ignition
*The Wico Igniter
See and understand how the Governing Systems work:
*The methods of governing
*Hit and Miss Governing
*Quality and Quantity Governing
*Examples of Throttle Governing
How are the engines lubricated?
*What needs lubricated
*Cylinder and Wrist Pin Lubrication
*Crank pin lubrication
*Centralized and Forced-Feed Lubrication
What constitutes and good engine?
Learn the best mechanical features of each type of engine and what brands had the best type of construction.
You will get a full mechanical knowledge of each of the mentioned brands of engines in the last 1/3 of the book.
IHC, GRAY, CUSHMAN, INGECO, FULLER and JOHNSON, RUMELY-OLDS, MANYLEY, NOVO, BESSEMER, FAIRBANKS-MORSE and MORE.
*How each brand was constructed
*How they work
*What types of mechanical systems are on each kind of engine
*And many other specifications.
Since this book was written in a time period when they were actually using the engines on the farm, this would have been a valuable book for the farmer to use for:
*Determining how the engines worked
*Which type of engine he should buy for his needs
*And most importantly how he should maintain and repair his brand of Farm Gas Engine!
