Default Jeager Model Number and HP

Just bought a Jeager at an auction. Looks like instead of the Hercules tag on the hopper it has the Jeager mixer tag instead. Is the 3 1/2E the mixer model? It has solid flywheels the exact same size as my 3 1/2HP XK Economy. It also has a casting date on the head of 9/20/28. Would this make it a 3 1/2HP S with solid flywheels?

If the magneto and flywheels are original to the engine, I'd think you have a late model S there. The model number of the Jaeger tag is that of the equipment it powered, not the engine model.

Also, the "3 1/2" probably has no bearing on the HP, as I have a 2 1/2HP engine out of a 3 1/2L batch plant.

I also have a tag like that the mixer was a 3-1/2 and the engine a 2-1/2 hp XK looks like someone put the mixer tag on the engine where the engine tag was supposed to be. i doubt it was done at the factory.
