Build the Snow -- A Tandem, Double-Acting Engine
Description
Doug Kelley's very popular Snow natural gas pumping engine, as an internal combustion engine construction series, first appeared in The Home Shop Machinist magazine. An ample supply of back issues in which the project appeared soon sold out -- encouraging reprint in a booklet format. The resulting 44-page plus cover saddle stitch volume includes 13 pages of photos that showcase full-size Snow engines housed in museum settings around the U.S. -- some that run and some that are being restored with the intent to run.
