Will be looking at 4 hit & miss engines in the next couple of weeks. One is a Gray. Does anyone know anything about them?

"The Gray Gasoline Engine , constructed by the Gray Motor Company of Detroit, Michigan, is of the four-cycle, stationary, hopper-cooled type, especially designed for farm use. It is built in four sizes 1-1/2 horse power, 2-1/2 horse power, 4 horse power and 6 horse power, which manufacturers claim are those most commonly demanded for agricultural purposes."

what else would you like to know?

I was just curious as the seller mentioned that one was a Gray. Any other questions will wait until I get to look at them

I bought that book (a reprint) off Ebay. I highly recommend it if you are into hit and miss. It describes the theory behind the Kingson carb, the Wico mag, the Secor-Higgins carb. and many others. I was fascinated at the many ways they found to overcome the problems of combustion in the early days.
I like hit and miss engines, but don't own one.Maybee someday
