My goal is to have all Jacobson and Jacobson built engines in the registry. Is yours in yet?

For now, here is the oldest Jacobson in the registry:

I really liked this engine. I recently referenced it in another thread because of the way it governs. It governs like our 50hp Otto by changing the length of stroke on the intake valve using the valve like a butterfly in a carb. The temperature gauge on the cooling system is all original as it came from the university.
Jeff,

I figured it must have been Jim that had cut the piece off and welded on the plate for the mixer. Not sure why he didn't screw the mixer onto the piece that he cut off? As for the other post referencing this engine...I must have missed that one. I did see where you had referenced an Otto that was in Washington state that Jim tried hard to buy. That Otto sets about ten feet from the Jacobson, has the belt drive oiler, water funnel cast into the side of the cylinder and does have Feet Off cast in the back of the base. I think Jim tried to trade a large Edison Bi-Polar Dynamo that Keith B ended up with and is in Texas now if I heard correctly.

Wayne,
I think dad felt the gasoline mixer or carb would hang to low on the engine.

I referenced it in the thread for crossley timed hot tubes because a duetz governing system was referenced and it is the same as our 50hp Otto. And the jacobson uses a similar set up.

Yes we tried to trade a bipolar for the Otto. Yes it went to keith on trade for the big New Era we have. Where it went from there I don't know. That was on display at Rollag for awhile. It needed a cleaner place to be displayed.

I think there's a good chance you have some other engines of dad's since a lot of things went to Clyde in that era. The Otto was the one engine I had really hoped for as the 21hp size is my favorite Otto and that one is an old schliecher style.

Dennis, I did not mean to hijack this thread. Apologies. Jeff

Bulletin page showing a large tandem engine possibly made in Meadville Pa. about 1906. Don't know if any were actually made.

For those of you registering engines, please include the Underwriters tag number if the engine has one. Thanks Don
