Well Most are held in a wide band clamp bracket which bolts to lower cylinder.




But the early ones were just like the earlier N and NB engines.


Cheers! NICK

The strap is 2 pieces, 2" wide, which is mounted to the bottom of the hopper on each side with machine screws (?). The pieces are then fastened together underneath. Hopefully the pictures will show

Well, what i learned tonight was my engine is the early style with spoke flywheels. Are the filler holes in the same location? and is there a differrant repro tank bracket? i just got the one from Hit and Miss for the NC model not knowing there was a differance.

Well it depends on how "early" the engine is. If it's got the short frame and the lower cylinder is squared off a bit with two tapped holes on each side, you need the hangar and short tank. Most engines of this style are the tiny 1 1/2hp but I've noted several 2hp as well. If it's a long frame you need the same tank as a 1 1/2hp N. The hangars for this tank are nothing more than four 1" wide strips of sheet metal bent around the tank and nailed to the skids. The two tank styles are completely different and can't correctly be interchanged.

Cheers NICK

Photo Re: Fuller Johnson Info Wanted

This is not the best photo but it shows the tank reasonably well. This is on my 2B Buzacott which has the tank mounted exactly the same as the earlier F&J engines. It looks like the skids under your engine are not right and will not allow for the proper mounting of the tank.

Here's a pic of the tank you need, same as a 1 1/2hp N.

Notice that it is not centered up and down in the mounting straps. Top strap has only 1/3 of the tank dia while the bottom ones are much deeper at 2/3. Again the straps are nothing more than 1" wide heavy gauge sheet metal. Patrick is right about those skids, they wont allow tank to slide under the cylinder.

Cheers NICK
