Default Associated Jerry Boy Engine

We made a junking run to Sask. Canada the middle of this week for some tractor parts and an added bonus was several gas engines. A stover tagged as a T Eaton, a Fairbanks Morse 3HP Z I think as it's missing it's tag and this air cooled Associated Jerry Boy. It was in an old shed but has much of it's original paint as you can see. Had never heard of a Jerry Boy. Are these very common? It has been adapted to a sparkplug and there has been some repair done to the governor but overall it seems to be in fairly decent shape.

Check Wendells. On page 34 you'll find a Chore Boy thats really similar.

I do not have this "Jerry Boy" manual, only these not so great pictures of its cover page.

As you can see from the tag, Jerry boys are RR car engines, They can run foward or backwards by changing the position of the cam, Running foward they used the mag but you have to use a buzz coil to run it backwards. I am allyays on the look out for odd assoicated engines like this Jerryboy or a Jack boy. Should you be interested in selling it please let me know!

Hello Mike,

I don't think they were all supplied with the reversible cam and some just had larger flywheels as most people discovered you could just put a twist in the belt and I am guessing the hand car companies incoorperated a cunning belt arrangement in thier design to make it easier so people could just mount any engine.

Also as with all Associated stuff the Mag would have been an extra so I guess most people would have just used a LT battery coil rather than spending $10 on a magneto that would only work half the time and they would need to buy batteries anyways if they wanted to get home again!

I have a Cam which someone forced on me when they couldn't get their engine going so I swapped it for a standard one. I'm going to fit it to a 1912 Hired Man I just bought this winter. I found out that they could just be specified on any engine (1.75 or 2.25). May I refer you to this ealier thread - http://www.smokstak.com/forum/attach...6&d=1277116041

We have been working on this engine. The paint looks really nice and we will be leaving it original. So far it has been cleaned and wiped down with lindseed oil cut with mineral spirits. Can anyone direct me on where to go to find igniter parts or a replacement igniter? This one had one hole welded shut when they converted it to a spark plug motor.
