My 25hp Type C is #23930. It is not in the 1930 National Supply catalog but is in the 1939 catalog. Mine has the brass circular check/mixing valve. There is a similar 40hp just north of here that has reed valves instead. The gentleman that used to own it thought it was made in the late 1930's. They both have cast iron enclosed cranks and are splash lubricated.

Our 25 HP is SN 12008. You can compare features here:

The registry sounds like a great idea.

Leonard,

The engine is throttle governed with a butterfly just before the intake valve. There is nothing else that is controlled by the governor. It is Serial # 40088. This number is also stamped on each end of the crankshaft with a R L prefix.

Rod,

The R L prefix is for right-left, if I didn't make that clear. Is yours crank stamped on both ends?
