Default Caldwell Hallowell?

Picked up this local engine today and appears labeled as a Caldwell Hallowell? at least that's how it seems on the side of the hopper? no brass tags at all on this one? 6hp 5 1/2 bore and 36 flywheels, all others I can remember seeing of this size Waterloo in Aus were labeled Big Chief, any pictures out there of how the scripting on the hopper originally looked on these?

Typak, put Caldwell Halliwell into google images. Turned up a brass tag and a couple of pics.

There used to be one of these engines at Wheatlands Warracknabeal Agricultural Machinery Museum. I presume it is still there.

CH Wendel, in his book, American Gasoline Engines Since 1872, says that these engines were built by Caldwell on property owned by the Waterloo Gasoline Engine Co, but the two companies were not connected. Wendel's book is worth owning.

The Waterloo Boy must have been the most copied engine ever.

Hello all
One thing I find interesting in that advert is no mention of the 1 3/4 HP Big Chief.

Cheers Scott

Thanks Eric, I will check up on that one, quite a few of the Waterloo Foundry Co engines around here and ran my eye over this one tagged as Big Chief today, also a link for a previous thread mentioning Caldwell Hallowell that could be of interest.

Hi Typak,

What makes you think this is a Caldwell Hallowell engine?

It is nothing like the one I owned - air cooled head, subbase, crankshaft machined on the side of the webs, brass plate on the hopper stating Caldwell Hallowell.......I have only ever seen 1, which was about 4hp, and I don't know much about them.

Regards,
Wayne

dob dob,
some of us over here in the wild west will be looking at one, no two! this Saturday,
but its no real surprise, Bob had one of nearly everything, including a Victa 500 twin.
pics from bookface.
if you like unusual tools, check out the multigrip-shapefit vice, which at last report proper name and manufacturer unknown.

Hi Wayne,
I guess he's going on what the previous owner advertised it as

As mentioned in the original post its a Waterloo Foundry engine with what appears to be Caldwell Hallowell originally scripted/decal on the hopper, the engine certainly wasn't acquired via flea bay.
