Default Hello.

I have aquired an IHC M 3hp 600rpm engine from my father, with my siblings help. I know nothing about these engines exept they sound great. Its from 1918.
I also am restoring a 1977 John Deere Cyclone440 that he purchased brand new. I need to understand these motors inside and out as he did.
I also like to repair and restore antique coin-op machines.
Vic

Welcome Aboard.

Along with asking questions on here, you might also want to click on the Calendar Events heading at the top of the page and look for engine shows in your area to go to.

Lots to look at, and lots of like minded people to meet that way.

Thank you.
I am a member of Jdsleds.com and it is a great site. All thanks to Harleysporster for leading me in the right direction.
My passed Father was a member of this site and had a very large collection. I Inheirited is a 1918 IHC M 3hp 600 rpm s/n B2650M with some kind of metal cuttung saw and RASCOII(my brother) has a IHC Famous spraying cooled vertical 2hp 400rpm s/n P5286. We should have obtained all but..
We want to fire them up but don't know the fuel or where to put it. oil thingy, coolant and everything we need to know so we don't ruin them. Mine even has a saw that hooks up to it.
These have working magnetos also but we dont want to break the engines because we dont know what we're doing.
We (for now) just want to fire them up and watch for a few hours in our Fathers Honor.
Any help will be great.
Thank you,
Vic

Vic:

It's very smart of you guys to learn as much as you can about your Dad's engines before attempting to run them.

Good luck in a great (if not dirty) hobby!

Smile Greetings from Centrai OR

I did a few Google searches for info on a 20 year old Onan genny in a motorhome we purchased. Smokestak kept springing up so often, I thought I'd register to get some tips.

Although I don't have any old power machinery, a 90 year old friend has a '46 IH Cub he restored about 20 years ago. We do lots of woodworking in his shop. He is at the point where he can't do much, but enjoys helping me do things in his shop.

We are planning on taking our "new" 1993 21 foot motorhome (with the soon-to-be perfectly running Onan onboard) to CO,Myrtle Beach, then to the Upper Peninsula of MI and back to OR. With our Goldwing/sidecar rig in tow.
