Default new from Southern Il.

hey guys found this forum trying to hunt down a proper id to a motor. I have a few vintage motors that i play with.

this motor is off an old sears craftsman auger 2stroke, has lauson on the carb, has craftsman on the flywheel cover, and has tecumseh on the flywheel.

it looks to me like a power product motor, i had a pp-58 or ah58 i think. and the parts looked similar, and most what i can find that looks like it is a ah47

could someone please help me identify this motor??? I would like to use it for a project im working on and kinda wanted to know if it would be strong enough to pull a full sized adult.

it came with what i think is a gear drive setup, would that give more or less torque, im not sure i have never owned an auger and this one came without the auger bit and at the moment does not run. but i will soon fix that. even if i cant use it for a riding toy i want to pretty it up and make it run.

lots of cool motors on this forum, im already hooked

Hi chris welcome to the stak. Most of my engines are spoked flywheel engines. So I cannot help you on your engine. But there a lot of people on here that can. The stak is a great place. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Bill K
