Default Got a new toy! 1 1/2 HP Overstrike IHC M

Just bought a 1922 (big tag) IHC M overstrike with mag. Hope to get it home tomorrow. It has been a good week for new "toys". Bought a trailer, Cub Cadet 128 and the "M". Here is the trailer.

Here are two pics of my new toy! Just brought it home today. Now the work begins. Got it to fire a few times. First ignitor engine that we own. I once had a Hercules 3 HP EK, but never had it running or complete.

Where are you finding these engines? I can't find jack squat for sale around here except for IH LA/LB engines or the occaisional upright, neither of which I like. I've been looking for a couple months now for a new engine and can't find any that are up for sale for under $1000. Do you have any leads on any more? Looking for exposed crank engines, with heads, hopper cooled, and prefer webster mags or batt/coil ignition since I alread have a Wico EK engine. Thanks!

Jeb

Here is the Cub Cadet, model 128 made in 1972. The "M" did not come from E-Bay. We got it from a friend of ours, that bought it at Portland. He did buy another one, just like it from someone local.

Mike
nice trailer and M, and Garden tractor. I have one question what is the difference between a overstrike and a understrike ? I have had a 1929 1 1/2 HP M since about 1979 and would just like to know the difference.
Thanks

Bud overstrike and understrike are refering to how the ignitor is tripped. if you have a 29 it should be a sparkplug engine with a mag? BobRR
