Yup I have one & they start easy & run like a top. I'll check the numbers to be sure tomorrow. I call them a carnival engine because I remember them running out behind the carnival rides when I was a youngster. Les

In the 2nd photo---It seems that the pulley/flywheel cast combo would be a nightmare to make.

I checked my EF novo & it is serial no. 2916 Mine has two flywheels. One flywheel is inside a large cover along with a cluch, the other flywheel is in behind a large raidiator with NOVO embossed in the top tank. Problem is, the tank is iron & rusted out in several places. It is curently waiting its turn in the shop. Can't get a good picture of it right now. Les

Johnny,

Glad to see your post!
Of course it is not limited to only American engines.

You know I like that foreign stuff too.

I'm planning on being at Nuenen in 2013 with my "Engine Freak" t-shirt I got from you.

Not sure how much time I'll have next year for visits, but I always like to visit the Belgian collectors I know.

George

Does my new New Way 8hp horizontal twin count? I only found a couple registered on the New Way registry.

Marv,
Is that the engine Bill Ramsden had?

As for less than 10, it might be, but only due to the hp size.

A collector I know in Germany has what I believe is a 4hp one. He has a personal registery he keeps of these engines. His photo album of ones he knows of must have at least a dozen of them.

Photo Re: Less than 10 (Rare Engines)

While 5hp horizontal Monitor engines may not be all that rare, I have my Dad's old one that has the (supposedly) Super Rare Speed Change Pulley on it that allows you to adjust the RPM while it's running instead of having to shut it down to adjust the spring tension on the governor weight. It looks like a clutch pulley. You grab the big hand wheel and then turn the center knob to adjust the governor spring tension.

I need to either patch about a hundred pin holes in the gas tank, or make a new one for it one of these years. Of all the engines Dad had when I was a kid, I always liked this one the most, and after it changed hands a couple times I was finally able to get it bought back several years ago after being 'held for ransom' by the last owner, knowing how bad I wanted it back. But at least it's back where it belongs.

A few years ago I was also able to buy back Grandpa's old Sandwich Hay Press which Dad ran with the Monitor back in 1969 on Grandpa's farm for the "Show Before the Show" that he had to see if there was any local interest in starting up a Threshing show. The next year, in 1970, the Stephenson County Antique Engine Club was formed and the first 'Annual' show was held in Freeport Illinois. Some things are almost Destined to happen, and reuniting these two pieces of equipment seemed to be one of them, even though I had to jump through a lot of hoops to make it happen.

Not really considering that Springfield and Foos used a similar design for their small engines.

This is a 2hp Renee Engine, It is French, the name gives that away. I'm not real sure just how many there are, but I think it meets the threads criteria.

I have a Detroit Gasoline Engine, horizontal style. Looks like a Nelson Brothers design but tagged Detroit Gas Engine Works. Not saying I qualify but this engine isn't listed in the BYB or I haven't seen another one. Tried to upload pics but it's not letting me.

Thanks
Bob Loos
