Exclamation Engine with gov splash guard?

Hey guys. I know i've seen an engine in the past at some point (even if it was only a picture) where the horizontal flyball governor setup had its own little cast iron splash guard sorta covering it. I don't seem to remember it being a particularly unusual or rare engine, but i don't remember seeing any others with a splash guard for the governor. Does anybody know which engine(s) had this? I've been racking my brain (and my hard drive) trying to remember what kind of engine it was! Thanks.

Waterloo Boy is one that comes to mind. I'm sure there were others.


Cheers NICK

I'm sure it was the waterloo boy even though I can't find the pictures I was previously looking at that show one with the guard on it. If you can find a picture of one that shows the guard in place would you post it please? Thanks for putting and end to my racking of nerves over this one, lol!

Jeb,

Here's a pic of the guard on an 8 HP "Call of the West" engine sold by A. Stanley Jones for the wooden thresher of the same name. Engine may have been made by Waterloo Boy or copied from same.

Hmmm, that doesn't look like what I was thinking of. The one I was thinking of curled off of the rear/bottom and looked exactly like a miniature cast iron version of the crank guard on the back of the engine. Almost made me think of a Sandwich engine or something.

Bill,
The "Call of the West" engines were an early Desjardins design. Yes, similar to the Waterloo built engines but definitely built at the Desjardins foundry in Quebec. These engines preceded the rounded hopper Desjardins that most collectors are familiar with. They also have a guard over the gears.
