Question Can anyone help with info on an I.H.C. stationary engine?

A friend on this side of the pond has just rebuilt (actually remanufactured as it had a conrod through the block and countless parts missing) an I.H.C. "Famous" vertical engine. It has a serial plate L14327, 3HP, speed 360.
It utilises a Webster magneto with an ignitor, Cooling water circulating pump and seems generally over complicated!
Anyone got anything on these. Pretty rare beast in England!!!! It runs well now, but info is hard to come by.

According to my serial number list the L series numbers end at 6484 the LA series seems more fitting the number you indicated with an LA prefix indicates a 1911 build date. They are a stout well built engine, the water pump system is actually quite a simple design being plunger type. the earlier engines were tank cooled by thermosyphion. 1905-1906 late 06 the water pump was introduced. Take a look at Harrys 2 hp Titan which is the same thing basically of what you have there.
