Default Lambert Engine Advertising???

Greetings from Arctic South Central Nebraska. Some friends of mine have been trying to help me answer some questions about Lambert engines. About all we can find for aids are a few engines to look at, which has been very helpful. But, I'd like to know if anyone has any original advertising pieces (catalogs, page ads, etc/anything) or any original operating instructions. I'd like to see some original pictures or anything on these engines.

A couple of my questions include what did they use for oilers/greasers on the rod & crankshaft main bearings? And are there any pictures of an original crankguard?

Does anyone have anything like this, or know know anyone that does? Any help or leads to see original sales or operating literature would be much appreciated. Thanks!!!

Chris Epping

The 2 pages below were in an 1894/5 Challenge Windmill & Feedmill Company Catalog. This was prior to Challenge making their own engines.

Sorry for the size, but it is what I have on my web site. I shrunk them enough to still be readable, but retain most of the quality. You might want to go to the link to print them off as they will show a little better off the link.

E-mail me Chris. I can scan the Lambert pictures out of my 1901 edition of Gas, Gasoline and Oil Engines book by Gardner Hiscox and send them to you.

Hello from Wisconsin!! Hi Chris, I have , like Mike, Three books by Hiscox, An 1902,(orignal), 1910,(reprint), and 1897,(reprint). They all have something on the "Lambert". E Mail me your snail mail address and I'll send you copies. I think that they will be clearer than thru the computer, from past experence.

I have a nice original 1907 Lambert catalog but it is for there automobiles. It shows 5 models selling for $1200. to $3000. Four are 4 cylinder and one 2 cylinder. All had friction drive transmissons. Funny thing is that they did not make there automobile engines but used a Rutenber engine. Engines and cars made by the Buckeye Mfg. Co of Anderson Indiana.
