Default Amanco copies

I understand that a number of companies made copies of Amanco engines - does anyone have a list of names of these companies or any more details?

Hello David--

I think that AMANCO engines were made by Associated Manufacturers of Waterloo IA. Associated made lots of engines. David Edgington (UK) wrote a comprehensive book on Amanco engines. i got my copy thru his web site, and it has more Associated information than anything else. See also Keith Smigle's Associated page. Let me know if you can't locate Edgington.

Yeah, Amanco engines were built by Associated of Waterloo,Iowa. I don't think anyone copied them so much as re-tagged the engines that Associated had built under contract. In Canada, the Milwaukee sold by P.T. Legare out of Quebec was an Assoc'd engine (e.g. a 6 hp Milwaukee was actually a 6 hp Mule Team). Most Milwaukees came with the Webster set-up on 'em. Also, Sylvester out of Lindsay,Ontario sold some engines that were the Associated style. I think Larry Healey would know more about that.

I have seen Associated engines tagged as Wonder, for a cement mixer application.
