Does anyone have any information on the Olds vertical engines or the begining of Ideal vertical hopper cooled engines around 1909 to 1911. Looking for photos also.

Kevin: I take it your talking about the type C Olds?? If so what exactly are you looking for?? I have seen this type C wiht Olds tag, Field tag, Maud tag and some Gould of the same make. (spark plug type) I am sure there are many other names that were on them. - Ted PS What size do you have?? 2 HP or 3 HP ??

Ted, The engine I have bought the tag says.

Ideal Gas Engine Company Lansing MI
Type M 2 1/2 HP serial # 12063
Spark plug fired hopper cooled engine. This is a very odd engine. I will have some photos soon.

Have any info on this engine?
Thanks for your help
Kevin K
