I bought the remains of a lighting plant yesterday which has a New-Way vertical air-cooled engine mounted on a base marked "The Marmon Chicago Co." (see photos below). It spent its working life here in south-west England, but I've no idea how it got here. I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about the Marmon Chicago Co. and perhaps supply some pictures of a complete unit that would help with restoration? Also, if anyone knows where I could obtain a suitable generator and switchboard that would be of great help too. I will get some better photos of my engine when we unload it, but you might be able to make out the large (Kingston?) carburettor that is fitted.
