Default McLeod Brothers of Winnipeg

I am looking for any information on a 5 HP McLeod Brothers Engine. I have heard that they are Nelson engines, but can not confirm that from the BYBook. Any thoughts? I can post pictures. The carb looks very creatively mashed together from other parts. Any information out there at all?

Leo

Hi Dude, I looked at that engine in Castlegar a couple of weeks ago, A lady by the name of Karen was selling it and bunch of other engines and stuff. I bought a couple of Waterloos from her.
Did you buy everything or just the Mcleod?

David is right on the money, I have a 5 horse Sattley that was built by Field-Brundage that looks just like yours. The main caps have the casting number CC9A on them just like yours.

Thanks, guys:

So the question is, how do I find manuals, and parts. As you know Bill, this was badly Frankensteined. Was is a Mag or buzz Box? What kind of parts calls do I put out to find the mag and the carb. All else looks in tact.

So is it a Sattley?? LOL

Ps: Bill, if you didnt get my email, yes I got everything that wasnt nailed down. I had to pass on a mill and a large FBM pump. I am trying now to figure out what to save and restore and what to sell (part out). I think the steam piston will become an art piece or a garden ornament. (very badly cracked)

Red face Re: McLeod Brothers of Winnipeg

Just took a look at the unit in the shop and compared it to the limited pictures in the BYB. You are correct that for the most part it looks like a Sattley (PG 406). The Field brundage is close, but there is only a picture of the "Wolverine". The rocker arm style on this picture is exactly the same, but the carb is in the wrong place. Also the trip ignitor is not the same as what is on my machine and it looks closer to the Sattley.

So it looks to need a finger trip ignitor with a ??? Mag. It will also need a new carb as this one is very frankensteined. A friend said it looked like an old auto carb is currently attached. I will take a close up of these points and post a photo.

So I am posting for 5 HP Sattley parts?

Hi Leo, Yours is a 5 horse McLeod as the tag says, Mine is a 5 horse Sattley.
They were both built by Field-Brundage and are pretty much identical.
McLeod was built for the Canadian dealers and Sattley was built for Montgomery Wards.
I got a reprinted Sattley Instruction manual from Ed at Hit & Miss.
As I mentioned earlier I got two Waterloo engines from her, one was missing the governor and the other needed a cam gear. I thought maybe they might be buried in the piles of parts. If you run across anything that looks like Waterloo parts let me know.
Did you get everything in the little shop too?
Thanks, Bill

Thanks Bill:

Yep... but it was total overload to get everything out in the few hours I had. I didnt find much, but was also not really looking. Drop me an email or phone call and we can discuss it further without burdening this thread.
