Solomano Gas Producer Unit
From the Collection of Friends of Kurth Kiln Kurth Kiln Regional Park Worri Yallock Victoria
- This Gas Producer unit is obviously a home made construction for a specific application. Absence of any air-cooling facilities suggests these may have been fitted separately inside the engine compartment.
- Les Solomano tells us this unit was made by their cousin Frank Solomano and mounted on the passenger side running board of his A Model Ford, Spare bads of charcoal were tied to the rear door, so passengers had to get in and out through the driver side doors.
- circa 1940
- It is the smallest Gas Producer unit we have seen
- No specific marlings
