Default Help with Fuller Johnson Multimotor

Several years ago, I got a basket case Fuller & Johnson Multi motor. This is identical to the pump jack engine, except setup as a general purpose engine. It took a lot of effort including welding up a big section of the base. Now, All I need to finish the restoration is a metal battery box. Ive had names of guys that have made these at some time, but never been able to contact someone who actually had one or was willing/able to make it. I sure would appreciate leads for finding an origional or repro F&J box.

Hi Peter, If you can find someone willing to make them I have a beautiful original farm pumper battery box to use as a pattern. So far everyone I talked to doesn't want to bother with them. I'm rather surprised as this is one of the most requested items I get asked about.


Cheers NICK

Thanks Nick, maybe one of Harrys vendors will come forward. Funny with all the parts and tanks etc,, a high demand part like this goes wanting.

I just visited your website and found under (misc engine->american) you show a multimotor. The pic is a little dark. Do you know the proper colors for this model? I assumed it was green with maybe silver cooling fins, your pic almost looks reddish and some contrasting color on the flywheel face? The box looks black.

Peter

Color for the Multimotor is everything from cylinder up in silver including the pushrod, muffler and oiler pipe. Flywheel rim and fuel tank are bare metal, battery box is black inside and out. Everything else is the early F&J dark green.


Yeah if I could get someone to make up farm pumper battery boxes and 1 1/2 N crankguards I'd be a happy guy......

Cheers NICK
