Jacobs Aircraft Engine Company
An early product was a small 55 hp 3 cylinder engine. By 1933, Jacobs had developed its most famous engine, the L-4 seven-cylinder radial; it was better known as by its military designation, the R-755.
Jacobs engines were fitted to many US-built aircraft of the inter-wars period, including several Waco models.
After World War II, Jacobs became a division of Republic Industries (not Republic Aircraft).
