Default Back home with new toys

Just returned home today after a 2,800 mile trip to TX with a couple of new toys. The first is a 1917 tank cooled 10hp "Z" with a Plugoscillator mag setup (I have mag & bracket, it's just not on for the picture) and the second is a 1 1/2hp "Z" generator engine (I have the condensing radiator & shroud but I took them off for the trip home). The 10hp has a neat dual-fuel carb setup and it has a cast iron crank guard. This engine is HEAVY!
