AN ENGINE DIVIDED
I recently bought this Jeep L-134 4 cyl engine/ air compressor I'm looking for any info or links
in it's regard.
Please help if you can.
The old "Air Bag" is snug and warm in my basement after being alone and
for too many years. After blowing away the dirt, dust and crud, he
still looks dirty.
Well ya hafta loveum anyway.
His name tag reads: Hesse Hornet Hess Corporation Division Hess Carriage Co. Kansas City MO-----Dover NJ
Engine plate reads: Kaiser Jeep Corp. Jeep Industrial Engine Model CJ 3A Engine Assembly # 913102 Serial # R3J-17777 4B
Chassis plate reads: Hesse Hornet Model "H" Serial # 9 1707 5 Idle speed 850 RPM Pumping speed 2200 RPM
I'm hoping at least one of you can make more sense out of the above,
than I can.
After doing a mild web search, I found very little. Apparently there is
still a Hesse
Corporation in Kansas City MO.
He has a heavier fly wheel to make up for having to fire on just two
his idle speed is increased from 600 to 850 RPM.
His head is cast with the words: Hesse Carriage Co. and the head is the
feature that sets him apart from the run of the mill L-134 (see poor
Cylinders 1&4 fire engine.Cylinders 2&3 are used to compress air.
Dimensions: W-20.5" L-31" H-32" WT-heavy
His stance is strong and proud with a solid chassis.
