Here are some photos of my Jaeger. This engine was given to me by a very dear friend of the family, Ed Bachman. I was 14 at the time. It was given to me under the condition that it always look like "It was at work on the farm yesterday".

I'm told that this is a rather rare engine, notice the view of the head that the exhaust port is parallel to the ground and not at an angle. Also that the Fuel filler openings on the base on the ends and not the sides. The bore is also 3 5/8 not 3 1/2.

I'm fortunate enough to know the history of this engine. It was owned by the Boy Scouts and was originally on a Cement Mixer at the Charles Howell Boy Scout camp in Brighton, MI. Ed Bachman recalled the engine from his days of scouting with his son and went on a treasure hunt for it sometime in the 60's. He was fortunate enough to find it in the dump and received permission to remove it. The Charles Howell Boy Scout camp has since been sold by the Boy Scouts and has been developed into Condo's I'm told.
