Question Hercules Question?

We have a 1 1/2hp Hercules Model E and today I was cleaning on it and it had the Serial# 111384 stamped on the end of the crankshaft. I know the D style had the ser# on the end of the crank but what about the E's, does anybody else have one like this?

Glenn Karch told me if the tag is gone from an E there is no other number.
So I would guess that yours is a fluke. Some new employee started stamping cranks and they told him to stop, or they had an old stock D crank that got used in yours, who knows... Kevin

Exclamation Re: Hercules Question?

Is the number on the crank the same as the one on the tag? if not, perhaps it is a replacement! If it is the same - COOL!
