Is the third photo a Gearless engine of Springfield Ohio? A few exist and the cylinder head is distinctive. One being not far from you, Tommy.

The second photo is a Springfield. A big one at that, probably a 12 to 15 HP (and they were huge for their HP). You may be right on the 3rd photo Tom. I can't positively ID it.

Here's an old photo of the Rumsey Gas Engine Co. factory in Friendship, NY. This was the third and final operating location for the company before it closed.

Great thread!

Someone a while back sent me this photo of a Lennox engine made in Marshalltown, Iowa because my family has a similar engine.

And here's a poor quality picture of a photo which I believe is The Geiser Baby engine made by Geiser Manufacturing Co. of Waynesboro, PA. I wish I had bought this photo so I could scan it in.

This is a photo of a 200 HP Snow diesel engine which I believe was taken in the early 1970's in or near Bradford, Pa. I am not sure the specifics on this one. Possibly the same engine that is at Coolspring? Anyone out there know the details of this one?

A rare shot of the machine and assembly shop at the Rumsey Factory in Friendship, NY. You can see a finished 2 hp tank cooled model in the foreground as well as others in various stages of completion.
