I’m fairly new to collecting old engines. I’m quite diversified in brand names. I have a John Deere, Fairbanks-Morse, Jaeger, Fuller & Johnson and a Stover. I need some help identifying my newest engine, which I fell heir to. I’m enclosing some photos of this engine. Any help is ...

What Was Mounted to This Empire Engine’s Studs?
