The Fuller and Johnson 1917 to 1920 Farm Pump Engine

This engine came out of the Merced Ag Museum when it closed down several years ago,

Great hit and miss project, needs - fuel tank, any 6 volt battery and buzz coil. and a little TLC
Has compression when turned over by hand and only a few parts needed to get it running.

This engine is unusual for the fact that they run in the opposite rotation of
most engines. They are different also, because they have just one
flywheel and use the auxiliary exhaust port system.

The FPE came out in 1909

The first type of the F&J Farm Pump Engine.
had a plain flywheel and no battery box attached w/wood base. 1909

About 1915the engine still has the plain flywheel, but has the battery box attached
and an all-steel base.

About 1920 a later model has the printed flywheel and the spark plug has been moved from the
cylinder to the head.

F & J built about 65,000 of these engines.
The first ones were built in 1909 and started with S. N.20279 —
they ran consecutively through 49999; then 100,000 to about 133,000.

in the early 1920’s, carloads were sent to Texas, where
they would be used to pump oil.

After 1932 not too many of these were built, and those that were built
had to be hand built out of the parts inventory which was left
over after the original F & J Company went out of business in 1932.
