Joe. Sattley is wards trade name. Nelson brothers also made engines for them after Brundage. I don't know if the 2 1/2 hit&miss has the same governor as the 1 1/2hp. but if it does it will be a 3 stepped spool on the end of the crank.?(See Rogers 3Hp. pict.) Can you post a pict.? Roger. Both of your engines appear to be built by Brundage Judging by the Hoppers, base and the speed control on the 3hp (is it a 3 or 2 1/2hp?) Wendel mentions a 2 1/2 but not 3hp. by brundage?.I believe that the spooled speed control is brundage for wards only?? I have my engine cleaned up pretty good and will see if I can find some no. other then whats on the tag. but so far haven't seen any.? Just learning about these so keep the info and questions coming! Anyone have a wards catalogue from the teens? The Black and red engines really have me curios WAS it a Sears thing??BobRR

They look pretty sharp in black! Here's a picture of my recently restored 1-1/2hp Racine Sattley. When I was restoring the engine I found a number cast upside down in the hopper side of 5-25. From everything I've heard they weren't made after 1917 or so, but it looks like a casting date to me. Does anyone have an idea about it?

HI,
On my engines, it is just a guess on horse power, because there isn't a tag.
If you use the yellow bible, a 4" bore x 6" stroke it is a 2 1/2" by the MW list on page 317. The other looks like the one beside it.
So it is a Field Brundage, right?

Thanks
Roger

I have some old wards catalogs,1906.1916,1926 etc. I have a 1 1/2 hp and a 3hp. Both were originally dark green and with a different decal than the ones I have seen. One has the date casted on the hopper June and a #.

They do look nice black. The one my friend has also has what appears to be a date cast in the hopper of 4 26? It is black also.(restored to that color) It has a lower no. then mine which doesnt have any no. cast in the hopper??? Rumor is that they made replacement cylinders-hoppers that had a date cast in it????? Mine is red for sure.???? If it was repainted it was about 80yrs. ago. Back to does anyone know when Brundage went out of bussiness?? The casting no. on both these engines start with AA. So Im assuming(I know this could be problem ) that they are the 1st series or models?? Roger you have brundage engines!BobRR

Catoe. How do your engines date compared to whats in the catalogs? Are your green engines Brundage or nelson brothers? BobRR

My 7 HP Field Brundage Type W has remnants of dark green and July 19 raised letter in side of hopper. This is one of my favorite engines, nice slow runner. John Davidson if you want to add this to your roster the serial # is 9357.
