Mogul Junior, 1 HP, serial # UB 2993, built by International
Harvester Co. between 1915 and 1917. Restored by Gerald P. Jahreis,
2908 Maple Avenue, Eden, NY 14057.

Pictured is my display of four models at the Sandwich Early Day
Engine Club Show in June 1983. Three were made from casting kits
and all run! My father owned a 6 HP Sandwich engine the only power
on our farm at the time. We used it to run our elevator and
Sandwich corn crusher.

I spent many hours around this engine in my youth and wanted to
build a model, but found that original prints were burned years
ago. I borrowed a 1 HP Sandwich engine from my late brother’s
collection to make a set of prints, scaled down to 1/3 size. My
model was built up with no castings. It has 1′ bore,
15/8‘ stroke and 511/16’ flywheels.
The only things not handmade are the points, plug and timing
