Default Standard Engines

Does anyone have pictures of Standard engines made in Cleveland, OH? I would like to see any that are not pumpers, if they exist.

Woody, I only know of one vertical that is the regular tank cooled without the pump. Basically a farm engine. There may be a few hopper cooled verticals without the pump that Iíve seen but I canít say for sure that they definitely didnít have the pump.

I've found pics of 2 HP engines (with pumps) on-line. The engine I am talking about seems to be a 5HP. I con't tell by the pics if it has a gear for the pump. It is not on a base.

Woody, I acquired a two H.P. Pumping Engine a few years ago and did quite a bit of research on them. I didn't find a whole lot, but remember finding and following some threads here on Smokestack that mentioned an engine of about 5 H.P. that someone had, that had been separated from it's base and pump. I don't remember the details, but searching the threads using different words each time yielded quite a few pictures and stories. Randy Hart might be able to help. Good luck !

Not sure if it is the same company but isn't there a Standard engine at Coolspring. I know you said w/out a pump, but this one has a dynamo, pump and compressor. I think it came off a Sub?

Default Re: Standard engines

I have two Standards here, but they are both pump engines.
I do recall seeing a 4 or 5 horsepower Standard at Portland a number of years ago and Iím pretty sure it was not a pumping engine. I think I have photos on a USB drive. I just have to find it.

Default Re: Standard engines

Here are two looks at the bigger Standard made in Cleveland and a smaller Cleveland with the igniter. Then a pic of mine, which was made in Akron. I see quite a few more made in Cleveland and only a couple made in Akron. They are nice engines with interesting pumps that offer lots of monkey motion. These engines run against compression and can run hot but tend to run cooler using propane.

Woody, hereís a few pictures of my dadís 2hp Cleveland Standard stationary hopper cooled. I guess there are a couple of these around. My dad sold his 5hp years ago but thereís a few around; a lot more 2hpís though. Not sure about all the Akron Standards but the 5hp a friend has has its jug turned 90 degrees from the Cleveland 5hpís.

Nick, thanks for the pics. I'll probably need some detained pictures of the sub base and nametag sometime in the not-too-distant future. I don't have good pics of mine, yet. Won't have them till spring.

Default Re: Standard engines

I have seen 1hp, 1 1/2hp, 2hp, 4,hp, and 5hp Standard engines. The company made engines in both Cleveland and Akron although I canít say specifically why the company moved between the two cities. Hopefully someone else can chime in here to explain the history of the company.

Below are a few of the different tags with their hp.

Default Re: Standard engines

Some tags were cast brass while others were stamped brass. Also, there were many different designs by this company. And the expansion air ballast tank that is cast and located above the pumping valves were made in different shapes over the years of production. The brass carburetor or mixer is integral with the fuel pump below and is complex. There is a lot to these engines and they display well.

Default Re: Standard engines

An option on my 2 H.P. Standard Pumping Engine, made in Cleveland, is an air pump that sits on top of the water pump. This was so that a head of air pressure could be put in the tank while filling with water. This engine supplied water for irrigating the grounds of a Great Lakes resort. I know of one other with the air pump. Sorry my photo files were lost so will have to take more pics later.

The 2hp on the red tailgate is mine when I bought it.
Tagged Cleveland Ohio. I remember a 5? At portland some time ago. Kyle Blankenship may have a standard but not sure of the size.

Thanks for all the info. After I take delivery in the spring, I will probably have a "stationary" base made for it, and a cast tag as well.

Hereís pics of our old big Cleveland Standard when we took it to Portland a few years ago (1985). Friends took it Portland again in 2009.

I have pics of other Standard engines but nothing is scanned.
