This is my 15hp Heavy Pattern Monitor. I have heard rumors that there is another 15hp somewhere but no one seems to know where it might be at. I sure would like to know if there really is another one or anymore out there even if it is just the remains or tag from one.

Taking a shot in the dark here, but this is my 2 H.P. Standard Pumping Engine, made by Standard Pump and Engine Co. in Cleveland, Ohio. It is shown in the BYB. I know there are some out there, but I only know of one other with the air pump on top of the water pump. This was supposedly so a head of air could be put in a pressure tank at the same time the water pump filled it with water. I would like to know how many others are out there. Thanks for the thread, George.

This is my 1904 Little Baker 1 1/2hp tin top Baker Monitor engine. It is an extremely early style and has the port for the spark plug cast into the top of the cylinder along with the base being different/reversed and the crankcase cover curved to match. It also has Little Baker and Baker MFG. CO. cast into both flywheels. If anyone knows of more like this style please let me know as it is the only one I know of currently.
