Stevie,

The Ideal Power Lawn Mower Co. of Lansing Michigan made them in the 20s.
I don't know the duration of their manufacture. I'm sure that someone who has one will be able to give you more information.

Looks like BobRR is a faster typest than I am.

Dick

Stevie,
I have a 1 hp(11" flywheels) ser.#J3820 with a patent date of June 20, 1920. I have seen this same tag on later engines but don't know how long they made them. I'm told mine is an early one with rounded sheet metal crank cover. Of course some could have been made before they received patent.
