That is a robust looking engine! Standard equipment was a one way clutch and the ad doesn't mention a variable pitch prop. Is this one of the few small 4 cycles engines that could be reversed?

Built in Seattle WA bye N&S Electric Company.N&S manufactured high quality gas engines and dynamos. N&S was family owned and operated by three brothers Robert, Wilhelm and Wilson Neidergesaess. Wilson ran the machining portion of the foundry at N&S. Wilson left the company in 1926 to open Wilson Machine Works. Wilson Machine Works is in full operation today and is still family run. Wilson Machine Works has a fully functional "Cub" on site at the original location. Thanks

If you are interested in helping please contact me at 503 791 3693 or email@example.com and I will provide you with an electronic catalog.

Why not post the list here in a new thread and get a range of opinions and perhaps some useful "conservatorial" information? Better yet, post photos too.
At least four photos of each engine, one from each side will be required, as Dick has pointed out to us previously in regard to studying and dating Palmer engines.
Getting back to N&S, years ago I had a reversible prop and shaft marked to that company. Perhaps they leaned towards reversible props due to their propularity in Scandinavia? ;)
Somewhere I've got a photo of their old shop down on the Seattle waterfront; I'll dig it out.
