Detroit Motor Car Supply Co. Literature


Detroit Motor Car Supply Company built their vertical two cycle stationary engines in size's 1.5, 2.5, 4, 6, 7.5-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-15, 16-18, 18.5-20 horse power. The 1.5, 4, 6hp were built as a single cylinder single flywheel tank cooled engine. The 2.5, 4 & 6 horse power hopper cooled engines with a single flywheel were first introduced in 1911. They sported a unique looking round tapered hopper that was bolted to the top of the head and cylinder some times referred to as the "Spittoon engine" or "Flower Pot Engine". The 7.5-8, 9-10 hp were single cylinder tank cooled engines with two flywheels that looked almost identical to the Detroit stationary engines. 
The DMC twin cylinder with two flywheels tank cooled were built in 11-12, 13-15, 16-18, 18.5-20 horse power and also looked very close to the Detroit Engine Works twin stationary engines.
