Default Abenaque Kerosene Engines

I would like to know if there are any Abenaque Kerosene engines out there anywhere? Did they build any? Hope to hear from the Abenaque GooRoos. Thanks

Every one I have seen has been gasoline only. Had a flip thru my Abenaque Machine Works book and couldn't find anything that says they made or experimented with kerosene engines.

Cheers! NICK

Nick,
The reason I ask is I recently aquired an Abenaque catalog that tells about their new Kerosene engine as well as a picture. It is hopper cooled. Just curious as to the production.

Really? That's pretty neat! I've a copy of a 1908 catalog and for fuel it says use gasoline or cheap stove gasoline. The remains of my original 1920 catalog says same thing although it's not complete. What year is your catalog? Probably there weren't many built, they didn't make a lot of the familiar gas engines either.

Cheers! NICK
