Here is a photograph of my Piersen engine. Just finished restoring it last summer. It is like the one described in the gas engine book. Besides what Mr. Wendel has in the book I might add a couple of things. Looking at the picture you can see a fruit jar. This is an oil reserve controlled by a float in the crankcase, keeping the proper oil level. Also both valves are mechanically operated by one rocker arm. The radiator turns with the flywheel and water is circulated by a stauvener water pump impeller. I knew the engine was blue, as that was the color under some dirt under the main bearing. The nametag reads 'Piersen Motor, Designed by E.B. Cush-man, HP 5, RPM 950, N A624, Patented-Manufactured by Piersen Telegraph-Transmiter C, Topeka, Kansas.'
