Don, any idea as to what years the 2hp pump engines were built and were all 4 types available at the same time or if one style replaced the other?
Thanks!

I believe that they were sold between 1912-1916. The cogwheels seem to have been first and the pushrod later. I also believe that most all the castings were done in 1912, thus the5000s serial numbers. Once again this is supposition.

Here is a new page covering Jacobson's Sturdy Jack 2hp Pumper engine:

http://buzzcoil.brinkster.net/moody/page124.html

I want to thank Don Worley as the 4 engine pictures he took and the vintage photos are from his collection.

Here is a photo taken outside the factory for sales purposes. It was to show how easy it was to move. Yes, once you got it up that high.

Newer style air compressor. They also had an older style previously posted on this thread and a compressor made out of the 1 1/2 hp engine as seen on another Jacobson thread.
