    Howard Hoffman's 3-1/2 HP Fuller & Johnson Model NC is a beauty. Introduced in 1926, the NC range was available to the end of Fuller & Johnson production in 1933.

A few years ago during a visit to the Coolspring Power Museum in Coolspring, Pa., I purchased this 3-1/2 HP Fuller & Johnson engine. This handsome, well-designed engine features tapered flywheels, six head bolts, a wet head, angled crankshaft bearing beds and a spring on the rocker arm to maintain light pressure on the exhaust valve. A flywheel spring and ball weight give ideal hit-and-miss cycles.

This little engine sold for $108 in 1929. I have finished restoring it and mounted it on red oak timbers and trucks.
