I saw one a Coolsprings once, but dont know where it came from or who owned it, other than that, I have never seen another. I imagine there pretty rare. Good luck.

Here's a picture of my Gearless. It's a heavy engine for its size, and runs smooth and slow. As stated in one of the previous posts, they are early (circa 1900) and not too common.

It has been a long time since I have seen one of these sell. A 4 HP sold at an auction in SD in 1987 for $4900. Since they do not come up for sale very often, it's hard to say what one might go for today.
