Here are pictures I was sent of a Jacobson engine. It has no name tag and a serial number has not been found. Don, is this a pre-Ward/Bullseye Jacobson? When were Webster mags first introduced on Jacobson engines?
I'm looking forward to people registering their Jacobson engines. Hopefully milder weather will encourage people to do so.
Thanks!

I talked to the owner. He can't find a serial number. The fuel supply is like the one used on engines of the low 2000s. As far as I know no Ward engines looked like this engine which ended in the low 3000s. Ward engines started in the mid 3000s. The only way we will know for sure is if we can get more engines registered in this serial number range.

Coolspring 2010 P. Harvey pictures
Another Charles Jacobson engine design.
My Fairchild & Betts engine made in Warren, PA. It has features similar to the Erie Climax engine and the Automatic Jacobson which were both designed by him.
