Roger, your engine was built in 1916 as a 4hp hopper cooled Fam. kero engine.
For a serial # list you can find it at my site:

Remember all engines designated by the name "Titan" since May 1st 1914.

Thanks John,

Would you know where I could find parts for this engine. The mufler is missing ( I have only the cast iron elbow bolted to the head) and the ignitor is missing too.

Is there a good close up picture of the ignitor side of this engine on the Web ?


Regards
Roger

You could try Hit-'n-Miss or Starbolt, Harry's sponsors.
According the catalog Starbolt sells the mufflers and the manual for the engine. A view of an ignitor for it can be seen at Ted Brookover's ignitor page http://www.oldengine.org/members/bro...c-famous-4.JPG

Take care.
