Carl; Just checked my roster and find that your number is alredy listed. It used to belong to Munro Tasker of Homer, MI. I knew he died some time ago. He also had 1 1/2 HP Type W, sn 35787. Do you know where that is now? There was one collector in Jackson, MI who had 15 Field built engines His name was Fred Barsons. He left us some 15 years ago. Never heard what happened to that collection. Never got to meet him, only thru the mail.

My 1 1/2 hp seems to be in the 1917 catalog. In that catalog they show a 2 1/2 hp model not a 3 hp. The 3 hp is in the 1926 catalog. The tags on both only say racine- sattley. One thing is the catalogs show a decal about 2" wide and 6" long insted of the decal you see all the time which is about 4" square with Sattley on it. The latter decals if used will be over the raised dates casted on the water hopper, which seems like the narrow one would be used on these engine. Just quessing. John

Looks like Field was still building engines in 26??? Mine doesn't have any no. cast in the hopper and has the square decal. My Tag simply says Sattley Montgomery wards with several cities listed below that. Also it has a G(type??) between the hp. and 1 1/2.Do the catalogues make any reference to color? Does any one have some different yr.Wards catalogues from teens or twenty's??BobRR

On the 1 1/2hp. engine with a dry head what did they use for a head gasket? My head was off with no gasket. It doesnt have a very wide sealing surface. Will gasket material work or should it be a copper gasket/o-ring?BobRR

My 8 HP t/g Field-Brundage was sold by Brackett, Shaw, and Lunt in Somersworth, NH and has their own Saxon nametag. Look under all the grunge in the bottom of the crankcase for a casting date; that is where I found mine ( Sep-19). Large parts were cast, and then left outdoors to season for a while: a form of stress relief. As I recall, I had several different casting dates on various parts. I estimate that my engine was actually assembled in 1920. It is black, as was the 5 HP F-B Sattley I used to own. Remember that Sattley is just a brand name used by Montgomery-Ward. Just like Sears, M-W didn't make anything, they just contracted with various manufacturers to make things for them. Al Wait
