I was helping a friend move and he is getting ready for a tag sale on December 28 in Greensboro NC. He has an early (1914--1916 ??) International "vertical" hit and miss engine. It is 5 HP and would make a great addition to ones collection. GOOGLE tag sale in Greensboro NC December 28 for details and picture.
A pretty nice looking IHC vertical in the 3-5 h.p. range!
It was sold as a "Titan" when sold through McCormick Deering dealers, or a "Famous" when a International Harvester jobber sold it.
They were built from 1905-1917 in 2,,5 and 6 HP.
The plate bolted to the side of the cylinder is a common frost crack repair.
LOTS of old engine and auto parts at this sale, too bad it is so far away.....
PM'd the original poster.
