Default 2 new engines need info on?

Just picked up a couple of engines this weekend and need to know date of maufacture and any other info that is available. I guess I really need to find a book that has all of this information in. Any reccomendations as to what to get?

Here they are the first one is a economy 1 3/4 horsepower, it has a wico ek mag serial number 314708

The second one is a stover 1 1/2 horsepower serial number is ke 217547 it is also equiped with an ek mag

All inofrmation and help with these engines greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave

Starbolt engine supplies , an advertiser on smokstak has books on both of your engines You can e Mail him at Starbolt4you@aol.com or phone during business hours at 301-874-2821 8 to 4.30 eastern time. with Wico magneto it means they were built sometime after late 1923 .I hope this will help a little. Good luck in a good hobby, Joe Morris

Thanks so much guys, I know I can find books for each engine, was wondering if there was one available that might cover all of the hit and miss engines about there history etc.?

Thanks for the date on the stover!
