Monitor Engines

(From material supplied by Reg Ingold)

This listing has been produced from information supplied by Reg Ingold in Australia. The serial number lists were originally copied from a leather bound book kept in the engineering department at Baker Mfg. in Evansville, WI. The company is very much in business and the Monitor trade name is still in use for water systems. Additional information kindly supplied by Joe Prindle.


Some of the numbers were difficult to read, so a 'best guess' has been made to give a date. Corrections would be very welcome.
