I have not heard of a model 100 before, are you sure it is not a model 1000? The model 1000 is a single cylinder engine with a 1.5" bore, 1.375" stroke, and is rated to produce 1hp @ 3800rpm. That particular model was built between 1952 and 1956

Pete,

A Small Engines Service Manual, Second Edition published in 1955 that I have lists a Model 100 Power Products engine. It cross references to the model AH31-BO. That breaks down to a single cylinder engine with horizontal crankshaft with 3.1 cubic inches displacement. The B indicates a bronze connecting rod and O stands for open fan. Bore is 1 5/8" and stroke is 1 1/2"

I'm not aware of any serial number information showing date of manufacture and don't see any reference to horsepower in my manual. I'm guessing likely would be in the 1 to 2 HP range.

Bill

Hi Bill, what you stated about the engine, is what I have. On the bottom side of the crank case I found hand stamped numbers and I took that as being the S/N and that is just a guess on my part. Thanks, Pete.

Peter,

Just found the misplaced binder with my Power Products info that I've accumulated over the years while looking for a binder with info on a Craftsman riding mower. Anyway getting back to your original post, the Model 100 engine is rated at 1 HP @ 3200 RPM. At 3400 to 4000 RPM horsepower increases slightly to about 1.05 HP.

The information I have on the Model 100 is dated July 15, 1950.

Bill
