Photo McCormick Deering M angle mounted mixer

To the non-believers. Here is a photo of my 1 1/2HP "M" with the mixer mounted at an angle. Un-like all others that I have seen. Does anyone know what the engine might have been used for? Does anyone have a similar engine? TJ

Does it have a chain sprocket instead of a pulley, as in cement mixer? It's angled in the right direction relative to the chain drive side to make it easier to get at the 'controls' inside a tight compartment/housing.

No, it does not have a sprocket. It has a combination flat belt pulley and a v-belt pulley. I thought I had read somewhere that the flat belt system was born in 1930.

Not sure what you meant by non-believer, but thanks for the picture. As a life time fan of the Type M engines its fascinating to me the changes that accord during the 20 year run they were produced.
Your description of the pulley that's on your engine could possibly mean it was equipped for milker service? In the other post, Rob Charles is correct in that your M could have had a Kerosene carb originally and switched at some point in its life. If your engine is Wico equipped and the serial number puts it after 1924 that would be a very unique engine, especially if its on the original skid, and the skid shows signs of a milker unit being attached to it at some point.

That's a sparkplug kero style head. IHC made very few of them. Is there another set of holes either open or plugged under the mixer?Just ruling out it had been modified after it left the factory.Rob

Tom, Rob stated you have a later carb on a Plug style head that may have been made for Kerosene. I pictured for you a gas carb on an early kerosene head. Notice the angle. Then see the kerosene carb on the kerosene head, it sets straight where the gas carb sets at an angle. The bolt holes are drilled at different angle so to accommodate the extra pocket for starting and water burning.
If you look under the carb, there should be a fitting that would be in the head, that hooks a water line to the water drain, a high priced adapter drain is used.
I think you have a rare head, but the wrong carb.

Here is a blurred shot of the top of kerosene head where carb mounts, your head should look like this, with the extra hole for water at the one side.

I just acquired a 3hp M with that same head. I have no carb, so if anyone out there has a Kerosene carb, please let me know. There are pictures of this engine on a post I started this morning entitled, (More 3hp M questions). Thanks, Bob... PS, Thank you Tom for this post, and my use of it!
