Default Sattley (Montgomery Ward) 1 1/2 HP

Hi again everyone, attached are a few pactures of my recently acquired Sattley 1 1/2 HP. It turns over and the Wico Mag sparks great, I have to get a spark plug and oiler, based on advice here on the forum, I know what to get for an oiler. I just won a manual on Ebay that I hope will tell me about the plug.

Just about any old hit and miss engine will run off of a Champion #25 plug. Still readily available at your local autoparts store and it may be helpful to mention that it's a marine plug now. 1/2" Pipe thread and they'll think the thing is humongous. Good luck on getting it running again!

There are only two types of plugs I've ever seen in a flywheel engine.

One is a common 1/2 inch pipe thread plug. Just ask for a plug for a Model T Ford from 1908 to 1927.

The other type is a 7/8", again used on Model A Fords from 1928 to 1931.

Both of these types were used for many makes of cars, tractors, trucks and stationary engines.

In other words, if the plug's good and will screw into the head, it'll work.

Good luck and take care - Elden

I have the same engine, My best runner. Takes 1/2" plug, I use champion 25. Needle valve touchy on mine, I leave it set and ground the mag to shut it down. Model A valves and piston will work if needed. Timing is also touchy but once it is set it stays. Check your govenor weights for worn pins, I sheared on once while running, Fortunatly no damage done.
