I will look next time I get up that way. I'm using a micro swith and a coil. It simply runs better that direction! Thanks, Jeff

Hello Tom: I was up by the Bessemer Engine tonight and here is the serial number, it was hard to make out the second digit, but I think it's an 8. serial number, 38066. Possibly 36066??

Jeff so the cards Sue has don't go up to second serial number. So I am hoping the engine is a 20 hp. Our you sure it is a 22 1/2 cause only difference is piston size. By 1/2 inch
