Looking through back-issues of the "Stationary Engine" magazine for info on this engine and I found a picture of one a few years back. The serial number is 27855 and the owner says that it is 1916. That would make mine really early (16525 ). Does anyone have one around that date with a definite age provenance, please?

Looks like a type F
Some one converted it to spark plug. Type F takes an Igniter.
Also a Sumter Jr mag
Sumter IMP
Or a Sumter 30
22 tooth gear #8 pitch.
Also looks like it is missing the trip finger for Igniter.
I have gears also
Thanks
Scott D
PS Thanks Mike
