Photo Another one lives

For all those Stakers harassing me about getting my 5 H.P. Galloway Round Rod Engine running, I tinkerd with it the other day. I used a battery and coil before attemping to use the Hendricks Friction Drive Mag. After freeing up the ignitor (sticky),and a small problem with the fuel pickup tube. She came to Life . Its amazing how easy it starts, running on the first hit. She has not run for at least 5 years and that was only for 30 sec's and then i had to take her home from a County Fair. And before that who knows how many years. Next step is to repair the fuel tank and put on the Hendricks. But all is well she is breathing just fine now.

Andrew,
The shed you keep that engine stored in is in terrible shape. With all the construction going on you better not keep it in your garage(s) either. I'll be by to pick it up and keep it safe at my house for you.

Thanks Harry

For my next trick i am going to keep all my engines running at th same time, so when you come buy to pick one up you will have no idea which one to take. And go home empty handed and confussed.
