This is the nicest color illustration I've seen of the Bull's Eye engines. I believe this illustration comes from a Montgomery Ward catalog, but not sure where I "borrowed" this photo from?

Here is a Titusville engine that uses the model U cylinder and was factory made into a sideshaft. 2 1/2 hp ser no 18008. The valves are accessed through the water hopper. if it weren't a sidshaft it would be a Unito. Probably made 1924. Now my engine.

I doubt there is another one just like it. Jacobson probably only built 2 or 3 like this to start with. When you say now my engine. is the "now" like "today"?

Here are some pictures of our 5 HP Jacobson to add to the registry. It is a Titusville, PA engine with serial #19057. In the last picture, you can see the original cast cylinder plate with 4 pedestals. Not sure what was originally mounted on top of this? You can also see a groove in the inner hub of the off side flywheel for running a belt to theoretically whatever was mounted on top of the cylinder. We've had this Jacobson running nicely, and plan to give it a new paint job one of these days. It would not look the way it does today without Don's help! Many thanks!

Jeff,
Maybe there was a mechanical lubricator mounted on top of the cylinder.
