Default Rawleigh & Rawleigh Schryer engine pictures wanted.

This is an open invitation to anyone and everyone that was at the Stephenson County Antique Engine Club's 40th annual show in Freeport IL Sept 18 19 & 20 2009 to PLEASE Post any and all pictures you have of the Rawleigh and Rawleigh Schryer gas engines on display.

These were the feature engine at this years show, and I have had several people request pictures to be posted, but working on the Sawmill, I never got around to even look at any of them myself, let alone get any pictures to post of them.

I would like to see them as much as the people that have asked me for pictures.

If you have pictures from this years show, Please Share them with us.

Thank You !
Alan Lestikow aka OTTO-Sawyer

Photo Re: Rawleigh & Rawleigh Schryer engine pictures wanted.

Michael McCraken was kind enough to mail me a CD with his pictures of the Rawleighs & Rawleigh Schryer's at Freeport this year, and I will begin posting them here for him.

I would still encourage anyone else that has pictures to please post them as well. There have been quite a few people looking to see what we had there this year.

Most of Michaels pictures were in pairs of engine & tag so I could put serial numbers with many of them, but a couple engine pictures on the disc didn't have tag pictures, and there were a few extra tag pictures with no engine to match them going by the colors. He also told me that the air cooled ones didn't have tags on them so I can't provide serial numbers on them.

I have no idea who owns what engines, but as they were all on public display for everyone to see and photograph, there shouldn't be any issues with me posting them here.

If anyone can identify certain engines and who owns them, feel free to do so, and again, please submit your own pictures too if you have any.

Pictures aren't in any special order, just the way they were laid out on the disc as shot.

1st pic Rawleigh Schryer # AA11388 1 1/2hp
2nd pic Rawleigh Schryer #AA15513 1 1/2hp
3rd pic Rawleigh #AA16440 1 1/2hp
4th pic Rawleigh #AA16778 1 1/2hp

Thanks.... and Enjoy !

Photo Re: Rawleigh & Rawleigh Schryer engine pictures wanted.

And three more engines in four pics... The engine in the two middle pictures is tagged Leader but I can't make out any other details on the picture of the tag. I did walk by this one myself and planned to go back for a closer look with the camera just because of the pump jack on it, but I never made it back up there. Kind of an unusual design to it. The last picture here is one of them that I couldn't find a shot of the tag, so I can't give a serial number on it. Don't know if the owner of it is on here to 'chime in' with the information or not, but we can always Hope.


1st pic F6235 6hp
2nd pic Leader tag too blurry to read in picture
3rd pic Leader with interesting pump jack
4th pic Rawleigh ???... No picture of the tag

I will post more of them later...

And three of the aircooled uprights....

Unknown size or serial number
Unknown size or serial number
Unknown size or serial number
Group shot with owners setting by them. Please Identify if you can ?

Group shot also shows a small hopper cooled at the far end which I'm guessing is theirs also.

Still a few more pics to go yet.

Another angle of the 'group shot' of air cooled, and three more hopper cooled ones.

other side of the aircooled lineup
Rawleigh Schryer Unknown size & serial number
Unknown.... can't make out the tag... pretty good sized, maybe a 6 or 8 hp ?
Unknown.... can't make out the tag

I have 4 more engine shots to post, then may choose a few of the clearer shots of some of the tags just to show the variations of them.

Thanks again to Michael for sending me his disc. Hopefully I don't run out of storage space before I get them all posted.

Default Re: Rawleigh & Rawleigh Schryer engine pictures wanted.

I will indentify the engines in the above posts that aren't. In post # 5 the 2nd & 3rd picture is of the same engine a 2HP Leader tagged Rawleigh Schryer.
The 4th picture is of a 1 1/2 HP Rawleigh Schryer
Post #6
1st Picture Is an early 1 /12 HP Rawleigh Schryer Model Z with the single governor weight.
The 2nd picture is a 4 HP Ziegler Schryer.
The 3rd picture is a 1 1/2 HP Rawleigh Schryer Model Z with two governor weights.
The 4th picture is a 1 1/2 HP Rawleigh.
Post #7
The couple seated is Wayne & Wanda Judge Of Iowa.
The 1st air cool is the Judges'.
The 2nd air cool I brought to the show for Tom Samson.
The 3rd air cool is mine.
Post #8
The 2nd picture is a 1 1/2 HP Rawleigh Schryer.
The 3rd picture is an 8 HP Rawleigh Schryer.
The 4th picture is a 1 1/2 HP Canadian Stover tagged Rawleigh Schryer.
The early 1 1/2 HP engines had a prefix of Z. When they went to the double prefix they were AA. This can be accounted for by the air cooled engines having A as a prefix. The letter prefix corresponded with the HP of the engines.

Photo Re: Rawleigh & Rawleigh Schryer engine pictures wanted.

Thanks for ID'ing them Michael !

I just went back and re-read your e-mail and was going to let peopl know the black & yellow one was your 8HP, but it looks like you were able to identify most if not all of them for us.

Here's the last four shots of the engines from your disc.

Unknown Rawleigh made by Rawleigh Schryer
Z3923 1.5hp Rawleigh made by Rawleigh Schryer
Z4347 1 1/2hp Rawleigh made by Rawleigh Schryer
Z7048 1.5hp Raweigh Schryer

The reason I specified Rawleigh 'made by' Rawleigh Schryer on the first three here is because I noticed when I went back and looked at the tag pictures that some Rawleigh tags say made by W.T. Rawleigh and some say made by Rawleigh Schryer. I will post several of the tag shots later once I sort through them and pick out the clearest examples of each style.

If they're not frozen in my old dead computer, I just remembered that I should have a couple pictures of the clubs Rawleigh down in the Cooper Corliss building. If I can find them, I'll post that one too ASAP, if I don't find them, I'll take a couple new pictures in a couple months and post them later.

OR.... If anyone else would step up to the plate and post their pictures, then everyone can see them sooner instead of having to wait for me to try to find some.

Kind of disapointing when someone local tells you that they have pictures of all of them and then refuses to post any of them. Maybe there are some others out there that traveled to our show and took pictures that will eventually find this thread and add their later. Even if they're just different angles, or some detail shots of some of them. Whatever you have, please share.

And again, a BIG Thank You to Michael, for sharing his disc with me so we could at least get his pictures posted, and for identifying them for us.
