LeRoi Company Donkey Motor
Yesterday I found a "LeRoi Company" engine in a field with a fellow that I stop in on once or twice a year. I said that he had it "out back" and had finally moved it out near the road. He called it a donkey engine. It is a self contained unit with the radiator and gas tank all in a nice skid mounted package. It is an in-line four cylinder engine. It has a clutch and a multi-V pulley coming off the business end. It is all there and the sheet metal and such is in pretty good shape.
Fairbanks Morse type FMJ magneto; all four plugs and wires are there.
The muffler has been removed and rain has gotten into the exhaust manifold.
The nameplate says:
Stroke 3 1/2
Bore 2 3/8
I want you guys to have this thing if you are interested. It is in good shape as I said but it must be stuck. If any one wants it please let me know and tell me what you'd give for it. I'll be going back by this fellow soon and I'm glad to act as a middle man for a small fee.
