What Was Mounted to This Empire Engine’s Studs?
I’m new to collecting. I have purchased a 1 hp Empire engine, serial number 52576. It has studs on the back side of the water hopper. I have looked at other Empire and Alamo engines [Alamo made engines for Empire – Ed.] and have yet to see another one with theses studs. Do any GEM readers know what was mounted to these studs?
