I'm not sure what manufacture the engine is, however it looks to be relatively complete. I've got a few 2 cycles in my collection and I would suggest making it pretty, fabricating a mounting bracket, attaching it to a board and displaying it.

If nothing else it would be a nice conversation piece (and I'll bet that eventually you'll find out what it is).

A few mounting ideas (see pics)..

The engine is a "Power Products" 2 Cycle
They were used on a bunch of different stuff. This looks like it could have been on a mower deck with the exhaust poking down through the deck.

Exclamation Re: Is this a chainsaw engine? (Power Prooducts)

The engine, as you have it pictured in both of your posts, is upside down! Looking at the carb, the fuel bowl is inverted! That type carb and filter were typical for chain saws. The engine may not be a 1000, as typically, the 1000 had a governor mounted on the crankshaft, near the block, on the power take off side. It was installed under a housing that was mounted on the block. I see no linkages on the engine. Chainsaw engines typically were direct throttle, no governor. The way the carb is mounted, the shaft is horizontal

i know its upside down. I to think it is a chainsaw motor cause ther is no linkage like you said and Ive seen chainsaws with this engine only thing is the carb comes straight out with no elbow but that could also be the way the chainsaw was made

Power Products were used quite a lot on the David Bradley chainsaws.

Could have been on a post-hole digger or even been a small outboard marine engine. Lausen had a very similar air-cooled outboard motor,but it was a 4 stroke. Just a guess, Thomas

It is indeed a PP(Power Product) chainsaw engine. Tecumseh sold them for many branded saws. The missing frame close to the crank, would attached tank and chain/bar. They were often use in karting. on the pictures, the engine is upside down because I can see the Tillotson MD carburator float style with the float bowl up in the air.....
Alain,

with this yellow color and missing recoil, I can see on the flywheel that it used a clutch teeth "Schnackle" recoil, not the standard FM or Bulldog type.....
I am guessing that this saw was a "Fleetwood" model 400....but I can be wrong....

Nice Macs i feel even though the 125 wih a 101 sounds good i personally dont think it would cut any quicker than a stock SP125 the intake is the biggest restriction to a performance boost thats why the 101 has a BDC carb at 35mm

McBob.



And once the airfilter cover is back on no-one knows.

Hello. Your engine is a Homelite 24x1 from an early David bradley 3-16 chainsaw. In theese early days they were kin to Lombard and in some instances they were Lombard. They were also painted red and sold as the Strunk Eager Beaver. In 1951,Bradley and Lombard switched to the Power Products AH47. Your Homelite engine was also used in Poulans first chainsaw,along with others,before Homelite got in the chainsaw game for themselves. The engine case on the AH47 in a dead knockoff of the Homelite 24x1. The AH47 was used in every kind of chainsaw made in North America except for the big name manufacturers-pardon Lombard-to great success for all. If you guys playing with AH47s over-rev them,be carefull-the flywheels will explode. I had one come apart due to a small crack in the key way. Three broken fingers and 29 stitches later,I took a magnifying glass and looked at the pieces,and found the evidence. See ya. Junkitis.

I'm unaware of any McCulloch using a Power Products engine... McCulloch prided themselves in the production of their own engines until the late 70's and beyond when Paxton was out of the picture, but by the Power Products was out of the picture and it was Italian and other Foreign saws that where re-branded McCulloch
