I am no Ingeco Expert but it seems that 6hp and larger ones had the 6 spoke flywheels.. I have a friend with an older 9hp and his has 6 spokes..

some are 5 spokers, some are 6 spokers. I am not sure but I always thought the 5 spokers were earlier.

Well.... As near as I can tell... The early smaller engines have 5 spokes. The early large engines have 6 spokes. This is when they were International Gas Engine Co. (In ge Co)

After Worthington Pump and Machinery took over this contineued for a year or so... Then in later years they were all 6 spoke. I had a 1 HP Worthington Ingeco that had 6 spokes. Now I have a 4 Hp Worthington / Ingeco that has 5 Spokes. I think they were like Ford, They didn't throw anything away and there were transition engines that could be either way depending on size, year, and parts on hand.....

I have an 8hp Worthinton / Ingeco, it has 5 spoke flywheels. I'm guessing the eariler engines were 5 spoke.

Both of my 3 hp Worthingtons have 5 spoke flywheels and my 1 1/2 hp has six spoke flywheels. the 1 1/2hp is a much later engine and isn't an Ingeco Worthington however. I've heard a story that when Worthington bought Ingeco in 1917 they made the five spokers until 1918 when they changed to six spoke flywheels. There are quite a few numbers between them so I'm not entirely sure that it's true or not. Does anyone make decals for Worthington Ingeco engines or the later Worthingtons?
