STATIONARY ENGINES


To enable tractor pulls and other competitive events, it's been necessary to group tractors into categories such as "age," "weight" and "horsepower." The need to do this has not been felt in the field of stationary engines. However, developments through the years have resulted in changes which tend to categorize engines as "antique" or "modern." After an initial burst of creativity during the first few decades of the 20th century, stationary engine development remained relatively static through the Second World War. After the War, engine manufacturers were able to focus their attention and their resources on updating and refining their product lines to meet increased demands. Two features which symbolized the beginning of the modern era of engine design were the aluminum heads and overhead valves incorporated on engines introduced during the late 1940's and early 1950's. From then on, manufacturers increasingly introduced engines which were smaller, lighter, more powerful, and built with materials such as aluminum and plastic, which resulted in less-expensive engines.
