Last entry for the automatic engine. This one is set up for gasoline. Apparently they were in a hurry to get a picture. You can see the maroon pain with drippings of the red lead primer from the intake, which appears to have been added later, over the maroon paint. Jeff is correct that the pictures were turned into illustrations. You can see that the base from the previous picture has been removed. They didn't have to worry about how the paint job looked. The illustrator would remove the defects for the final version used in the advertising bulletins. You can also see the adjustable head on the ignition trip rod which was used on the larger engines.

This may be the oldest 4 HP. It has the "patent applied for" on the base. No serial number or evidence of a name tag were found.

From one of the Warren papers. As a note the first 5 years of my life I lived at 18 Crescent St.

This appears to be a Sturdy Jack made into an air compressor.
The head is made like a compressor not like an engine, it extends down into the cylinder about an inch to raise the compression. The clutch came with the engine. It had been in a fire before I got it and although I can see were a tag was it was melted into a couple of little blobs. This certainly looks like a factory built compressor and I wonder if Jacobson built it or sold the parts to someone else. The area where the cam and valve train go is not all machined. This is mounted on a truck with my Pierce inverted "V" twin to provide a load for it since the Pierce runs absolutely awful without a load.

P. S. See next for a couple of more pix.

This definitely a Jacobson compressor. Look on the flywheel hub face of the cam side flywheel for a possible serial number.
