Locomobile Steam Engine Help Needed
Would couple of your “experts” kindly confirm that this 2 cyl steam engine is from 1899 Loco?
Had that car many years ago, this is extra engine. Thanks

Locomobile, yes but not 1899. 1900 the oldest, maybe early 1901. It is a made by Locomobile, Locomobile engine. It should have an iron lower frame. The band around the cylinder block in the middle of each of the cylinders was for the increased steam pressure. Send me the serial number and I can tell you the year.

Looks like a later engine. I have a 1901 Locomobile, the extra "bands" around the cylinders were, I believe, later than 1899.

It’s 1901. Type 3.

It's definitely not 1899, most likely 1901 - 1904, the serial number would be be key to determining which year. It has the web on the water pump bracket and the bands on the cylinders, it's either a Style 5 or 6.
