The nameplate on Mike Tyler's 2-1/4 HP Galloway, clearly showing serial number AC 1001, the earliest Galloway serial number found to date. Although not yet confirmed, it's believed this engine dates from sometime around 1907.
Side shot showing the small water hopper opening. Aside from the smaller opening, this early 2-1/4 HP appears to be identical to later units, and why Galloway changed the hopper opening is unclear. Mike plans on leaving the engine as you see it here, with traces of its original paint giving it a fine patina of age.

Close-up shot of the Galloway's cylinder head showing valve arrangement and cylinder head cooling fins. Only the cylinder is water-cooled, as there are no cooling passages cast into the head. This type of design simplifies the cylinder head casting and is cheaper to produce.
