Anybody know if it was the same one that was at Jacktown in May? That was a real piece of iron. I remember hearing 5000 didnt buy it.

I'm willing to bet it was the same engine. 856 is a NJ area code and the people who had the one at Jacktown were from South Jersey. And yes, it was quite an impressive and complete engine. Would have needed a dedicated trailer. Unfortunatly I forgot my camera or there would have been a picture here. Must have been a good price to sell that quick.

guys
How did he verify it was a 12 HP. As far as I know the Sandwich 10 hp engine was the biggest they made. I have never seen one and I live in the Sandwich area and I have been a member of the Sandwich Early Day Engine club since 1977. Check out the Sandwich Early Day engine club website and there is a link to the registry of Sandwich Engines. Matt W. and Bob Ronning will tell you the same thing.

Several pictures were sent to me by another party. The tag is a dealer tag. Most likely stamped by the dealer. It would have left the factory as a 10hp and was most likely rated by the dealer as a 12hp. This engine was on a stationary stand. To verify this, I would need to know the Bore & Stroke and flywheel size.

If anyone finds out who the party was that purchased it, I would like to know.

I did not think of the possability of it being retaged by another dealer. Sandwich was known for their excess power. Also the tag you had in your post Steve had a R prefix and then the serial # the R was the prefix for the 10 horse (correct?) learn something Everyday.

You are correct about the R prefix. I added a table to the SEDEC page last week with the table... I still get confused on the Cub/JR....

http://www.oldengine.org/members/sandwich/engines.htm

Look closer at the tag and you will see that it is a little larger than normal with the sold by agents at the bottom of it. What would you do if you had a customer that wanted a 12hp engine and your largest was 10 at the time...
