Default Ingeco

I have what I believe is a 1 1/2hp Ingeco, although I'm not sure as the data plate is missing. All casting numers on both engine and cart have an "AJ" prefix. Cylinder bore is 3.5 ins. Flywheel diameter is 18.5 ins. It's equiped with a Wizard type 2TO, model 14 magneto. The data plate would have been approximately 4 3/16"L X 2 1/2"H as shown by it's outline in the old paint. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

The AJ prefix is right for a INGECO. The next best identifing thing is a 5 spoke flywheel. The bore, stroke and flywheel sizes are correct for a 1 1/2 HP engine. Decals are available. I may still have some. I had some made in middle 60s when I restored my engine, but then were "pirated" by someone who I will not mention even thou he is gone. Is there any original paint on your engine? If so what color? I have #3709 and it was painted light blue and has a ignitor. John D.

Thanks for the info John. My engine's flywheels have 5 spokes. It had some dark green paint under the grease coats. The s/n is 18371. I have located someone that will make a data plate if I can either supply a photo or a rub of one.
