This DEW engine has something that is very rare, The air-intake valve has a natural gas needle valve and attachment built into it. This was a option you would pay extra for from the factory and very few engines exist that had this option.

This is the most original Detroit stationary engine on this website. Water tank, fuel tank, tin muffler, original paint, wood skids & box never seem to last the elements. These are all in great shape to be over a 100 years old. The only thing missing on this engine is the pulley.  Owner: Arnie Fero, from New Kensington, PA.

  (Detroit Engine Works 2.5 hp)

Owner: Heller Davis from Davenport, Florida.  My Dad found this engine in Lake Alfred Florida. The City of Lake Alfred used the engine to run a water pump that pumped water up to the cities water tower. Engine was manufactured in Detroit Michigan sometime between 1905-1910.  This engine has the serial number (107) stamped on the face of the flywheel. See the Detroit literature pages for locations of serial numbers.  One of the first low pressure fuel injection engines made. 
Sold new for $147.00 in (1908).  Restored by Heller Davis.

Detroit_3hp_Arnie_Fero.jpg (52511 bytes)

Detroit 3hp, Owner: Arnie Fero from Pittsburg, PA. The two single oilers on this engine appear to be original along with the wood skids and box. Original Detroit literature show that the the two single oilers were on the very early model engines before they come out with the one piece duel oiler. Also the cast iron governor arm and the wooden battery box is a sign of a early built engine. Later model engines had thin stamped out steal governor arms and no wooden battery box.

(Detroit Engine Works 3 hp) single cylinder 2 stroke fuel injection.

I purchased this engine from a fellow collector at the Florida Flywheelers show.  Photo on the bottom left shows what engine parts I had to work with when I purchased the engine. As you can see the engine was not restored,  missing the spark advance arm and most all the governor parts. No double drip oiler. No muffler. The engine is now fully restored. We located a spark advance arm from another collector but had to reproduce the governor parts. This is one of the very first fuel injection type engines. Injection system pressurized from the crank case pressure. Manufactured some time between 1905-1910.   Engine restored by John Davis & Heller Davis.
