Hi Denis

Nice find for sure,
We used to have one with the vertical Gov that was retagged Moody out of Quebec if you wanna search your archive for that one.

Hey Jonathan,

I think we might be getting one similar in 2 weeks time

So there are vertical and horizontal governors, igniters and websters as well as some have the flared hoppers. A friend over here has the exact opposite of ours (igniter, h-gov and flared hopper) tagged a Bulls Eye. Would I be right in thinking that vertical governor, webster fired recessed hopper would be one of the later ones? And it doesn't matter what features it has it could have anyones tag? Although obviously most of the early ones will be Jacobsons as they didn't have any contracts at that point.

Some guys were hinting in the last thread that the horizontal governors were exclusive to bulls-eyes, not so?

Looks like a nice find Denis, how huge is that crank gear overkill. - Joe

On a 5hp there was an extra cost of $12.00 for the built-in magneto and an extra charge of $10.25 for a friction clutch pulley.

Denis,

Very nice engine!! You found it in that good condition or did you restore the engine? Does it run? Thanks for sharing

Dennis,

I was told by Don Worley at Coolspring last year when I brought my 3hp to exhibit, that the main differences between Jacobson engines and " Bulls Eye" engines that were made for Montgomery Wards and Company, had the flared hopper, and a fly ball governor that was only available on side shaft. The Jacobson engines could be ordered with either a vertical governor or one on the side shaft. The early Jacobson and “Bulls Eye” engines like mine were igniter with battery and coil, my engine has the optional low tension Elkhardt magneto which is run by the back of the side shaft and uses a three pole switch, which allows you to start the engine on battery and coil and run it on the mag after it starts. The later engines used the Webster mag. Nice Find Dennis It looks like a great engine !! Don also makes repro tags for these engine and a lot of great repro parts too.

Joe,

Did you find your Jacobson in the UK or is it an import ? hope to see some pictures when you get it !

I think the Bullseye and the Jacobson's hp might of been rated differently also. Nice engine there.

Jonathan,

I was confused for a moment I thought you were the other Jonathan (Sad Iron)

I bet you have already seen photo's of it on the ads without knowing it. Its not arrived just yet, we are expecting it before June is out. Its in a container somewhere between here and Canada right now
