    Cool pics! And cool parts. I've always wondered if the Pope over-head valve motors were influenced by Perry Mack and his motors? These Pope motor's top ends look very similar to Mack's Waverley motors. Do you or anyone else know who designed them or if there are blueprints still around? I know the Lake motor(circa 1919/20) is an exact copy of Mack's Mack motor so I assume there might have been other copies.
