Unknown Lawn Mower Engine Identified

Fuller Johnson mower

The engine on Page 6 of the February/March 2016 issue, “Unknown single-cylinder,” is a Fuller & Johnson lawn mower engine. This engine was used by Coldwell in the mid-1920s and Fuller & Johnson on their own mowers from the late teens on. These were NOT the same mower. There should be a housing covering the gears containing a platform for the magneto.
