From the couple of hundred M's I have seen(Afriend of mine and I have about 100 of them)The ign. models have some kind of varnish on the skids and when the wico model came out the skids were painted green.Most of the skids say "International Engine Kerosene 1 1/2 etc. HP" til 1923.Then they went to Mccormick-Deering Kerosene then the hp"Kerosene lettering is slanted.The 1 1/2 hp gasoline just says"Mccormick Deering 1 1/2 hp.Hope this helps.

Rob,

I take it then that a 1923 1-1/2 hp igniter engine would have been just some kind of varnish over the wood (yellow pine on mine) and would have said "International Engine Kerosene 1 1/2 HP".

Is that correct?

Thanks, Bob

I goofed alittle the hp comes before the "Kerosene" yes that would be about right on your 1923.Sometime in 1924 IHC changed most of their products to Mccormick Deering including engines and tractors.Rob

I have a early 1919 3 HP IHC M (100th engine made that year according to IHC) With it's original skid work. It has the undershot igniter (single bearing) The skid on this unit was painted black, with the lettering done in white. This engine was not mounted on a cart. The engine was painted in its original IHC green.

Skid was definately painted black. I had to remove and replace center support board, and it was black on all surfaces. I had to have the board custom made at a local lumber-mill as the piece was dimensional lumber - not the cheap undersized stuff they sell today.
