Spent some time checking out info on this unit.
Built in early 1926 by Baker Manufacturing of Evansville, WI.
The Monitor trademark refers to the civil war iron clad battleship of the same name.
Baker was founded in 1873 as a foundry and machine shop. By 1874 they had begun building wooden windmills.
About 1905 they introduced a gasoline engine. In 1911 they introduced a 1 horsepower pumping engine. This engine was revised and improved and by 1915 it had taken on it's final form, the 1-1/4 pumping engine, known as the "Little Monitor". These engines were extremely well received. I estimate that 2/3's of all of the engines built by Baker were pump engines just like yours (about 30,000).
These engines were sold all over the United States, and shipped all over the world. Huge quantities were sold in the plains states. The Manitoba Wind Engine Company of Brandon, Manitoba, Canada sold Monitor engines for several years until they started manufacturing duplicates in their own plants. An Australian firm also copied them. Little could be done by Baker since they never patented any of the unique features of their engines. John S. Baker felt that the efforts obtaining and defending patents outweighed the benefits, adding to the cost of manufacturing and decreasing profits.
The "Little Monitor" was built until 1943 and Baker offered limited parts for several decades after. In the 1950's, all of the blueprints and patterns were given to a local historical society, which has them in storage.
Baker continues in business today as a foundry, doing custom and production castings. A few years ago I had some parts cast by them using their original patterns. Many beers have been consumed while debating if these were reproduction parts or not, since they were made by the original manufacturer.
The casting number GA-81B is the part number for the gasoline tank.
