Photo Domestic Hit & Miss side Shaft 2Hp?

Hello, I am looking for opinions on the size of this engine. Most have said 2 Hp early model of course, 5" piston 6" stroke, 24" Flywheels and serial # 572 , so 1905 is what i have learned so far and hoping someone may have a serial number list or history on Domestics. This is my first and i have gotten some great information from other groups and wanted to try this site.
Thank you !!

Wow, that's a nice early Domestic! I have a 1912 2hp. type A Domestic farm engine. Does that engine have the gear on the crankshaft on the inside next to the flywheel? I could not see in your pictures. That would be for a water pump that mounts on the rear. That's the lowest serial # that I have seen. Nice engine.

First look at it would say 2hp. Only seen earlier 2hp with that style rim on hopper.
Picture of mine.

Did some more research and it is a 3hp. Mine has a 4 inch piston with 24 inch flywheels. The 3hp has a 5 inch piston with 24 inch flywheels. The early 3hp must of had the same style hopper as the early 2hp.
Nice engine!! Congratulations!!

Thanks. Mine is stuck and needs a full restoration. That will be done when I get a couple other engines finished. I plan on getting a cart from Cattail foundry for it.
