Wendell-Don-Others: Here is a photo of the tag on one of my IHC Titan Jr's . The restored one does not have a tag . It's 1 1/2"H x 4"L and reads as follows:

SOLD BY
NTERNATIONAL HARVESTER COMPANY

HAMILTON ONTARIO

Paul,

Thanks for posting the pic of the nametag. As I guessed, "Canadian."

Don

Question Re: Titan Jr. Engine Pix

Hi Paul,

Charlie Bryant here up in Maine. I have a couple of questions. Is the
belt pulley on the r/h flywheel the same as for the Tom Thumb and 1 HP
Famous and Titans?. Also is the engine S/N stamped on the end of the crank shaft?

The answer to your first question as I got wet in the down pour to check is NO . The answer to your second question is yes .

The crankshaft on the Titan Jr. is 1.00", and on the Tom Thumb it's 1.125" . The governor, latch up, flywheels, mixer, fuel tank, muffler and everything else is different .

Paul, if the Titan Jr. has a different muffler, do you have an original, a picture of it, and does anyone make a repro muffler that I could order ? Thanks, Wendell

Wendell: The Titan Jr. muffler looks like the 1HP Titan muffler only smaller . It has male threads of the same size as the female threads on the larger muffler. Here is a couple of photos of the mufflers side by side. Don Oberholtzer one of Harry's sponsors has them available as reproductions from time to time. Don's WEB site is:

Excuse me for asking a dumb question (I'm a steam guy, really!) but what is the difference between a 1 HP Titan and a Titan Jr? I own a small Titan (or at least that's what a friend of mine said it is, instead of a Famous) in need of some TLC, parts and what-not! I think the head on mine looks different than the engines in the above pics. It has the strange looking rod-cap casting for the cream separator, I think.

Thanks,
Mike McKnight

Mike: The 1HP Titan Jr. is somewhat smaller and lighter than the 1HP Titan or Famous . About the only thing common between the Titan Jr. and the Titan and Famous is the HP and the IHC name . All the parts are different .

Paul,
I appreciate the explanation. How can I tell what exactly this engine is that I've got? 1 HP Titan, 1 HP Famous, or Titan Jr? And, what all kinds of parts are available for these smaller, older IH's?

There is no name tag on my engine, and, unfortunately, there is a nut welded on the end of the crankshaft. (I think I've heard this is where the SN should be stamped?)
Thanks,
Mike
