A collector with some Jacobson engines said that he was leery of turning in engine info for fear that the info would lead to possible theft of his engines by strangers, due to the information gathered.

I want to reassure everyone that I do not share owner's name and/or where they live with anyone. There are no name/addresses entered into the registry of Jacobson engines. I'm only interested in engines as a research project. I hope no one will be insulted to learn that I'm not interested in people but only in engines. :-)

So if you were holding back for any reason, please go ahead and send me the info about your Jacobson and rest assured that there is nothing to worry about.

Thank you!
Denis Rouleau

Denis

On another subject I know you are always looking at old Ads etc. Have you ever come across anything on The Ohio Mfg. co. concerning the Morton Friction Drive Chassis they sold. I have only ever seen a copy of an old ad which stated they made the chassis to fit from 6 to 50 hp. engines.

thanks
LeRoy

It looks like the shaft was broken where the shaft was turned down for the clutch pulley.

Here is something to muddy the waters. Charles Jacobson ended out in Saratoga Springs. Never have seen one or even heard of one. You will note founded 1903.

Ive tried to send a literature sheet that I have, but I cant seem to get my old printer to match up w/ my new laptop. I believe the it is Jacobson #36. You guys are doing a superb job gathering information and were all very greatful; thank you. So far Ive learned that the fluted hoppers were Ward engines,but I havent figured out the vertical vs horizontal governors. Are the horizontal's early? Thanks again for a great job guys. Tim

Both govs. were at the same time. On the shaft is a Bullseye. Vertical is a Jacobson, however Jacobson used both-what ever they had on hand for a Jacobson engine. You will not find a Bullsye with a vertical.

The manufacturing of vises was an important part of the Jacobson Machine Mfg. Co. of Warren, Pa. from as early as 1900, even long before they started making engines. Seems like by 1906 Jacobson in need of funds to build gasoline engines sold their vise manufacturing concern to Rock Island interests as stated in this January 1907 newspaper article:

Factory photo of a tank cooled engine with Elkhart mag and Jacobson regulator. The buyer usually supplied the water source. The early Bullseye catalog shows a kerosene engine with a screen cooler which is the same as used on the old headless engines, of which I have an original example.
