One of the best places I could direct you to would be the Grout Museum in Waterloo, Ia. Sorry I don't have their # handy.

Roger, I don't have a current pic of the site, though I would love to see one. Here is a pic from a catalog of the factory in 1912.

Kelly's right Grout Museum would be about the best. Phone number is (319) 234-6357. http://www.groutmuseumdistrict.org/ They have alot of neat old pictures. If you are ever near Waterloo you should stop in for a visit.
Waterloo public library might also be able to help. (319)291-4521

I think part of Associated Mfgs building still stands. I should do a little research. If I'm right I will take some pictures and try to post.

Roger et al:
The Associated Manufacturers factory site was demolished in the 1960's for Waterloo's urban revitalization. Galloway's plant was destroyed about same time.
Associated's location has been a hotel since the early 1970's. Associated was located at 316 West Mullan (W. Mullan & Jefferson) which is about two blocks from John Deere's Westfield location.

As a side note, the Litchfield Manufacturing site still remains in East Waterloo albeit quite run down. There is a welding fabrication shop in the old Litchfield buildings. The owner tells me he is going to tear down this spring and build a new shop.

Hi. Does anyone out there know what the color scheme would be for a DuBrie marine engine that was sold by Associated Mfgrs, in England. It is the engine on page 72 and 74 of David Edgingtons Associated book. It is the single cyl, 5 H.P model. How common are these engines out here? I would like to get mine restored and running. thanks!!

Rudy,

Stanley DuBrie was a well know marine engine engineer, and he designed some good engines. The engine you have is probably from the twenties, had a wico ek mag on it, and uses many model t parts. go to this web page
http://www.oldmarineengine.com/cgi-b...cus/discus.cgi
and search for Dubrie. If it is a later 4 cycle engine like I have described, a number of nos ones were found in a warehouse in Detroit years ago. send me a picture, or post one here, and I will tell you if it is the same engine.

Roger~

I am sure some were produced, but I have no record of any survivors. Probably one some where sitting in a corner where it pulled a line shaft. Hope it hasn't already been scrapped.

Thanks for the Dubrie Marine/Amanco info. I will try to post a pic. The engine is a one cyl and has a Holley Brothers carb on it. It is complete. My friend found it laying on the banks of a river in the forest.

Rudy, here is a picture of a DuBrie still in the crate. I have seen a couple of these and they appear to be a dark blue, with a little green in it.
