MacLeod Engine

By Staff

‘MacLeod’s Company is still in business- they run a
chain of hardware stores. This is another of the many engines built
by Nelson Brothers.

‘I also have another engine with a later serial number that
has the solid flywheels similar to the one on the bottom right
corner of page 333 of American Gasoline Engines Since 1872. The
decal, hand drawn from the original, reads: Factory to Farm;
Quality Maintained; MacLeod; Price Reduced; MacLeod’s Ltd.,
Winnipeg, Canada. This engine is hit and miss; some were also
throttle governed. This one has the Wico EK ignition. I’ve seen
them with Remy high tension magneto. They were also available with
Webster ignition.’
