It does have a ported exhaust. I have a 4hp model that looks just like the one in the postcards. Here is an ad from a 1907 Southern Planter for Watt Plow Co. out of Richmond, VA. You can see the ported exhaust.

Interesting! I haven't seen one like that. Do you have a picture of your engine?

These are the only pictures I have here at work and taken before it was fully completed. The engine was primed by the previous owner and no original paint was left so it was decided to repaint it. The color was matched off of the battery box seat from the Wahl family's 12hp unit.

Thanks for the picture, I was looking for a full sideshaft engine in the picture - if I'd read your description more carefully I'd have seen it was a hit and miss model. Nice looking engine.

Here are a couple pictures I took back when I worked for a gas transmission company.
They are Worthington 24"x36" twin tandems. They were also turbocharged sometime in the 60's or 70's.

Here are a couple more. I have a bunch of prints and negatives that I need to scan with a better
Two photos of a Clark 10 and 12 cylinder compressors. The interesting thing with the first one is it's a 12 cylinder top end on a 16 cylinder frame.

A couple more of the Worthington engines and the Ingersol Rand generators that supplied power to the station.

Bonjour
The engine that drives this car saw is probably of American origin. Can you tell me more ?


Merci.
Bien amicalement

Francois:

I think Bert missed on the engine make. The cam is on the opposite side on the Fairbanks-Morse Type T or Jack of All Trades. Having said that, I am at a loss on who made it.

That is an unusual rig, though. The driver/operator really had to be careful in that pre-safety conscious era.

Looking at some pictures from the state archives today a found these, Melbourne University workshop, image states picture taken shortly after the completion of the workshop in 1892? perhaps a Crossley? the fourth image from the Victorian institute of the blind from the same time, perhaps a Tangye?

On the mill it says D.R. Patent= Deutsches Reichs Patent. So at least the mill ought to be German. Possibly the engine as well.

Bonjour les amis

Another view of our car-saw. So, in your opinion, Fairbanks Morse or not?

Francois it looks like the flywheel is held on by a hex nut, that would rule out a F-M, I suspect European?

All of the Fairbanks Morse verticals that I have seen have the exhaust coming out between the flywheels, not toward the cam side flywheel.
