I haven't collected engines for serveral years now, wanting to get back into it. I miss going to shows, restoring engines, and some of the best people you ever want to meet. Anyway I just bought a Bean 6HP orchard engine, the engine is complete minus the EK,seems like a pretty complex engine for it's time. Can't find much info on this engine. Was wondering if you guys might be able to point me in the right direction. This is going to be my winter project AFTER deer season! Thanks, Great Forum!

Do you have the complete out fit or just the engine. I have two of the spray units 1 complete unit powered by a 2hp witte and just the pump and engine (also 6hp) the fuel system seems to be a bit complexe with these engines. Some information is available but seems to be a bit scarce with the amount produced and the year the actual engine was built. nice find for only missing the mag. Ive been working on mine for bout 2 years. it was in rough shape when i got it and the timing gear was well rusted and missing several teeth due to being rusted away.

Just got home from work, (nightshift). The engine I have is in really good shape, the only problem I've found so far is the tubes on the carb are rusted away and the (I guess you would call it) rocker arm is twisted a little, maybe an exhaust backfire? What is the thermocouple looking thing thats runs down the exhaust tube. The serial # is 6607.
