Post Re: feild&brundage/racine sattley

Back in 2002 I was restoring a Racine Sattley 1 1/2 HP SN 18946 by Montgomery Wards with a Webster mag and speed adj. cone on flywheel. I had a simular problem figuring out which color to go with. See the archives and look at my string from 2/10/2002 on Racine Sattley color controversy. After some discusion I went with red, and I was very happy with the results. I was going to post a picture, but couldn't find one stored on my PC and was to lazy to go out in the cold and take one, (it is cold here in wisconsin).

Photo Re: feild&brundage/racine sattley

I found an old photo of my now painted red 1917 Racine Sattley 1 1/2 HP SN 18946 by Montgomery Wards and scanned it, so here is an attempt to attach that image to this post. I have also seen this engine in black and it also looked very good in that color.

I will have to look through my records and see if I can find out for you. I believe someone on this sight helped, but I can't remmember how any more. The information may be in my garage file, or in the archives on this site. I owned the engine for several years before restoring it, so any archive info would be from back in the late 1990's.

Bob, I looked through my records and couldn't find a serial number list or anything but only a paper that I wrote on saying that for my SN the engine was 1917. I believe I was told this by someone. I also searched the archives on this site and found some old post from back in 1999 that mentioned that the engines from 1917-1918 were just starting to be sold by Wards and had the well / wick style main bearing lubricators and Webster mags. Try going to the archives and do a serch for "Sattley" and you will get 4 pages of assorted info that may give you some clues to age and other info.

Thanks Doug. One thing I have found is that the Feild built sattleys used 2 different decals. The early ones 1916-17 had a long narrow one then in 18 went to the more square badge looking one. Now just need to find some engines that still have traces of old style decal and see how high the serial no. goes??My engine has the wick style mains also. I think all the feild-sattley engines were like that?Be interesting to hear from someone if theirs has grease cups instead.BobRR

I have one to add to the list:3 H.P.,#44584,R.P.M. 475,hit miss,supposed to have webster mag.

I wonder if we can date them by what city's are listed on the tags.Mine has Chicago,kansas city,fort worth,portland ore,st paul.

Does any body elses tags have different,less or more cities listed on the data tag?

It also has a date cast into the hopper but I have to go out to check what it is.

It also has a pipe plug in the top front of the head,which I was told was for water injection,any thoughts?...schramm...

I had a 5HP Sattely which had a "Montgomery Ward" label on it. It was a kerosene burner and was silver.

I have a 2 1/2 HP TG that has the remains of the original green paint. It has wick oilers on the main bearing caps and Webster mag with ignitor bracket 303K11. No tag on water hopper.
