I am sending a picture for the ‘What Is It? page.’ This
engine I found in a scrap yard.

It has a 5?’ bore and a 6? ‘ stroke. The cam gear is
inside the crankcase and the cam is outside. The bottom of the
piston is cut away on one side to clear the cam gear. It has had an
igniter, but I don’t know if it was mag or coil. A 1’ pipe
nipple comes out of the head for carburetor. I don’t know what
kind, as those two items were missing.

There is a brass plate on top of the block saying BRADLEY &
CLARK, Northwestern Agents, Minneapolis, Minn. Stamped number on
top of block 620 which I take to be Serial number, about the middle
of block (cast with block). PAT AUG. 13 and not far from that
appears the number (also cast with block) 7841, which I take to be
casting number.

Would somebody, please, tell me what make this engine is? Also
H.P. and what kind of ignition and carburetor it might have had? I
hope to see the answer in Gas Engine magazine in the near

Lyle is looking for the make of the engine pictured here. The
engine is restored and in good running order.

WHAT IS IT? B & EM Co. 4 inch bore, and 4 inch stroke. Make
and break ignition. Hit and Miss governor, 18 in. flywheels.

This 1918 Moline Universal tractor is owned and restored by
Lyle. It was restored in the summer of 1967.
