Default Hey! I'm New to all this.

I have recently inherited a couple of engines from a relative. Thought I might try and identify them and get them running, if possible.

I am from North Carolina and have recently retired after 24 years. I used to do electrical controls work for a manufacturing plant.

Can't wait to pick the brains of the long time enthusiasts of this hobby.
