Harold Burkholder Gray Engines

The Burkholder Family's GRAY Engines



Harold Burkholder from Bridgewater, VA. says-


We call the two small engines, 1.5 hp. I see some are listed as 1hp.
What is the difference?

My dad collected these GRAY engines over the years, because they had a
GRAY engine at his home when he was a kid.

I have three sons that had no choice but to be interested in engines as they grew up.
Dad gave each of my three sons and I a Gray engine several years ago, to keep them in the family.
I later bought the (Gray) number 4-3482-1 at the Portland show. Dad painted these engines a light green.
I don't know where he came up with this color. May be right. They are all on nice homemade wagons.




They all get shown at the local shows, and make a nice display, all in a line together.




My son Lewis owns the 1.5hp, serial number 3684-J. It has a dry head, governor inside the flywheel,
bearing lube grease cups, and an oiler down through hopper.




I (Harold) own 1.5 hp serial number 4-3482-1. It has a dry head, governor inside flywheel,
bearing lube grease cups, and oiler behind the hopper.




My son Matthew owns the 2.5 hp, serial 3-374-4. It has a dry head, governor inside the flywheel,
bearing lube grease cups, and oiler behind the hopper.




I (Harold) own a 4 hp, serial 4-3757-4, with dry head, governor inside flywheel,
bearing lube grease cups, oiler behind the hopper.




My son Nathan owns the 6hp, serial 4-1185-6. It has a wet head,
