Trying to figure out difference between a T+M and a Columbia. Mine is missing tag but what is there is on bottom of cylinder and rectangular. What are the colors for these engines ?

Paul: pretty sure this is an original T&M,the
tags in all my catalogs etc are oval shaped!
I have a note in my reference files that the color is ( Du Pont green 7498)although i have not gotten a color chart or mixed a sample to compare!
looked for ads in several publications but seems
Columbia didnt have much of an advertising budget ( no ads found)Wendel shows a vague pic of a Columbia and it seems to have a rectangular tag
on lower cyl ?
T&M in a 1902 catalog, had the lever timer control, but all later ones shows the proverbial
pedestal timer! One other noticible difference that might help, is the T&M's ( in all catalogs ) have four holes in flywheel, the pic of Columbia
shows three large, three small ??
