Baker Monitor Engine Questions

Enclosed you’ll find pictures of my 7 hp Baker Monitor engine (serial number 16370) and saw on an original cart. I am looking for information and some parts. This engine has a two-compartment tank, and on the intake instead of a choke plate it has threads, as if there should be some kind of air heater for the intake air. It has hit-and-miss governing. I would like to hear from anyone having one like that and I’m looking for the missing parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Mike, a check of a Baker serial number list shows your engine dates from 1917. However, we can’t tell you anything about the threaded mixer inlet. A look through our files didn’t turn up anything, so we’re hoping a reader can help you out. – GEM
