B. Shallers 1907 Gray with piston Water/pump or what Gray called its Sand Sucker Pump.
This 1907 Gray was posted on OME some time ago.
Harry Mathews 1907 Gray that he has on his site
has the water/pump and timer driven by the same shaft like the later model Gray motors.
Gray came out with an updated design that would be their standard motors for several years.
The Model "R" had a separate headless cylinder flange bolted to the upper crankcase.
The model "S" was the same motor but with a mechanical oiler. these motors will have an 8 or later serial number.
