I got this engine awhile ago and got it going today. Its a 1918 Associated Hired Man 2 1/4 hp. I had to buy a new fuel tank and line for it. I got it running pretty good. It does have some original paint but i havent decided if i should paint it or not. Let me know what you think. Thanks Craig.

Your engine...but I certainly would not paint that. Move the axle back and cover it in ATF.

I'd leave it original. Where did you get the gas tank? Thanks, Joe

You sound like my wife, always wanting to paint or paper something.

I was with my wife at Colonial Williamsburg. She commented how nice the wall paper looked in one of the rooms.

My comment was. "This paper is over 200 years old why don't you keep ours at home that long and see how you like it." Our dining room is now covered with a replica of the old paper.

I'd just oil it, too. I have one that was repainted except for the skid and the crankshield and the skid and the crankshield are by far the best looking part!

Your's looks better than mine and would look even better oiled with atf or similar.

Wildirish I got the fuel tank from John Wanat. I think he is a sponsor on here. Great to deal with and the tank is really good quality.
