Default engine information forms

Can anyone help with a blank engine info form like you would see at a show?
I have been asked to put together a display for our local Historical Society. Short notice but what can I say, it was my mother that asked.....I would like to have all the info listed for the displays on the same style form and make it a little less crude that what I have used myself in the past. Anyone out there have a form they can e-mail me?
thanks in advance and thanks again Harry....
Peter

I'm not sure what form you want, but when I show an engine I just put the information I think would be interesting such as:
1915 Champion 12HP
Mfd for Lininger Implement Omaha Nebraska
by Hercules Corp. of Indiana
$215 catalog price
2800# shipping weight

Possible uses include: Shelling corn, threshing grain, sawing wood, elevating ear corn, grinding grain, any job that a big electric motor or PTO has today.

(Then a little history of the individual engine might be nice
This engine was converted to a logsplitter at some point with a large wedge welded to the piston and the head, hopper, ignition and timing parts being thrown away. We made or found the parts to resurrect it.
(Of course some before and after photos are very nice also.)

We print the information on our computer and put it in plastic sleeves available at office supply stores. A photo album of the restoration sits open by the engine.
I'm not sure if this is helpful to you or not. I've not showed a lot or been to a lot of different shows, but I think people are interested in this type of information. Have a good show. Kevin

Kevin,
I have seen what I assumed were preprinted forms that had the spaces for that sort of info, I had hoped to give the same form to the folks who were bringing their "stuff" so it all was presented the same way. I am not real computer software savy to create one, was hoping one might be out there...
thanks
Peter

Mike,

Could you also email a copy to me also? We have a show coming up and need to put a form together. Yours looks like what we want.
