Default 20 H.P. sideshaft Witte

This is the best picture I could get of this 20 H.P. sideshaft Witte. Hard to take good pictures in tight spaces

Tanner,
Do you have any information on this engine? I would be interested in the serial number and location and also any more pics. It is the only one I've seen with a water cooled plate on the exhaust valve chest.
Thanks, Bill

Hi Tanner
Looks like a nice engine. I would be interested in it if it's for sale.

Tanner, More photos would be great. Some of the water tank end. Does it have the original tank? If it is for sale or trade I would be interested in it also. I have some good stuff for trade like IHC screen cooled famous. I am working on getting more Witte Iron Works engines and do not have that size. Thanks for the photo.

Nice Witte! Tanner if you get this make sure before you roll her over ALL 3 valves are free to move ,my Dad caught our 9hp hopper cooled with the gas valve stuck one day after sitting for a long time,luckily it didnt break the gas valve arm.If it has marks stamped on the ingnitor side flywheel that look factory ,it is after Feb1st 1910 I have a manual for these that was with ours and it states that after that date they are marked from the factory,they found it in the General store papers ,it was used for a sorgum press all of its life.

To everyone who wants the engine, Tanners post is 6 1/2 years old. Currently Joel Mosley is helping the owner in WA get the engine fixed up. It needs the fuel system.
Here is a new pic.

Hi Rich. What kind of marks are we to look for on the flywheel? What is the serial number that is known to be after Feb 1 1910? Thanks.

Ron,
The flywheels were marked with timing marks. Ignition, exhaust open, fuel open and exhaust closes.

Thanks Bill. Mine doesn't have any marks, so must be before 1919.

Hi I didnt notice this thread being 4yrs old at the timeOoPS The marks where put on the flywheels for the timeing exhaust and states they had a tape that could be supplied to do it your self with a cold chizzle that would line up with a pointer that went on the sideshaft,After Feb 1st 1910 was the date in the manual I have for all sizes of Witte engines (Sideshafts)

Nice Witte! That's the same cart as used on my 12 HP R&V, but that Witte makes the cart look tiny! What is the size of those flywheels? Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I believe 20 HP Witte side shafts have 60" flywheels 10" bore and 20" stroke.
