117 Lind Street McMinnville, Tennessee 371101922

This Fuller & Johnson 4 HP hit and miss #11134 was shipped April 7, 1913 to Mr. G.S. Grable of Henry, Tennessee. Mr. Willie Charles, also from Henry, acquired the engine and ran a grist mill and sawmill for a number of years.

Fuller & Johnson made the 'people's priced' engine only from May 8, 1912 to June 20, 1913. It was the predecessor of their famous Model N. It was originally supplied with battery ignition but now features a rare Sumter plugoscillator.

Mr. Charles also had a Majestic 3 HP #140022. Both of these engines were saved by his daughter, Mrs. Fred Callins of Greenfield, Tennessee. Restoration was done by James W. Priestley of McMinnville, Tennessee.

Owners of Fuller & Johnson engines can be aided by Mr. Verne Kindschi of Prairie Du Sac, Wisconsin with historical information and manufacturer's literature.
