I just picked up one yesterday my self, right now its my only non Fairbanks Engine mine is a 2 hp model S with the Wico EK it has spoked flywheels and some nice original paint and decals, all it was missing was the tank and fuel pipe to the carb, i rigged a set up to a coffee can as a tank until I go to Dublin NH and get one from Lee, you can learn about this in the Jaeger tank post, I got it running the afternoon I brought it home so, that was a good sign it even came with the original gear off the Cement Mixer, I always wanted one, I got a deal on it so I bought it along with a Fairbanks 3 hp with the Plug Oscillating mag and a "project" 6 Hp Fairbanks engine, it missing a lot of parts but it has the mag and gov, its not stuck and was only 75 bucks I couldn't pass it up
