Don, are you aware if some of these large Jacobson engines in the 40 to 150 hp range survived? Were they actually built or did they not pass the stage of a blueprint?

It is evident that by 1917, Maynard engines did not come from Jacobson but by another engine maker.

Thanks Ed! Anyone else has some Jacobson related literature?

The later Maynard Engines appear to be built by Nelson Bros.

From some of my factory records for replacement parts and sales flyers 60 to 110 hp were made. There were 2 60 hp in Warren County. I don't think any still exist.

Another factory photo of the Automatic engine. It shows the air start valve below the ignitor and the compression release lever on the rocker arm.

Sometimes during WWI, from left M. J. Hammes, Wade Millis, C. W. Jamieson, H. M. Preston, W. S. Hoskins, and F. M. Knapp, president of the Jacobson Machine Manufacturing Company. Can someone identify the car?
