Unhappy IHC Famous HELP Needed!

A friend of mine acquired a couple 2 hp vertical IHC Famous engines but they've been robbed Both engines have had the fuel pumps,water pumps, ignitors, and rocker arms stolen off of them It's makes me so mad that people will do this. These people are not engine guys just common thieves. On the brighter side, if I can help locate the parts then I get one of the engines I need your help on locating these parts and reproduction parts are fine with me. I need some contacts, phone numbers, web sites, e-mail addresses, etc. These are good engines if we can find the parts that were stolen. What might be our ball park figure to replace all these parts?

Thanks in advance for your help!
Mike

Mike: What a shame those thieves. They should be hung out to dry with the buzzards circling. Don Oberholtzer one of Harry's sponsors should be able to help. Check out his WEB site and give him a call.

Mike, I have a complete International 2 1/2 h.p. water pump, bracket, and the arm that runs on the cam (accelerator arm?). I puchased this years ago at a swap meet. I thought about putting them on ebay, but never have. I would be open to an offer if you are interested. Thanks, Alan

This is a correction to the original message, correcting from a 2 1/2 h.p. to a 2 h.p. IH vertical water pump. I have a complete International 2 h.p. vertical water pump, bracket, and the arm that runs on the cam (accelerator arm?). I puchased this years ago at a swap meet. I thought about putting them on ebay, but never have. I would be open to an offer if you are interested. Thanks, Alan

Mr. Alan,
I am intersted in buying the parts for the famous from you. Could you please e-mail with the price you would want for them, unless the other guy here has gotten them from you already.
Thanks for your time and cooperation on this matter.
Chad
