I am working on an engine for a 1911 Westcott. It is a Rutenber engine (not sure of the spelling on that one). It is a pretty high performance engine by 1911 standards. Bore close to 5 inches, oversquare to stroke, five main bearings, big intake and exhaust ports. I understand there was a Westcott in one of the first Indy 500 races and it was doing very well until it was involved in some kind of accident involving someone's riding mechanic. There is a video of the event on Youtube. I am told Westcott gave up on cars and was at least recently still in business making business furniture and equipment. There are only a handful of Wescotts left
I wonder how many years they made the cars?
Erik, can't believe I forgot to ask if you can share a few photos of that interesting sounding engine here as long as we are O.T. anyway.
Wescott autos were made in Springfield, Oh. 1916 through 1925. Averaged about 1000 cars a year.
