In putting the material I have together so far, though subject to the Lyle Cummins material Hugh sends, it looks like there was an engine prior to the Type A that was sold in small numbers from 1900 to about 1902. It was a single cylinder job (11x20 inch bore and stroke). It had the compressed air injection but a single stage integral compressor. This compressor proved to be a weak point and failed on those sold engines, so the fix was to install an external 3-stage compressor (not directly engine driven as far as I can see) and with this update, the engine became known as the Type A. The first ones were sold in 1903 and installed into a municipal light facility in Connecticut.
