Hi Guys, I am new to this forum as well as new to the hobby. I have always had an interest in these old motors and never had a chance to dive in. I was at a tractor show last week and found what I believe to be a ZC118. The tags lists 6 and 7 HP. It seemed mostly complete except for the plug wire and it was mounted on a cart. The 100.00 price tag seemed great so I bought it. When I got it home I noticed the head had been welded as well as the bottom of the water jacket under the cylinder. The weld job seems solid and the motor has compression. I checked the mag out and the coil is grounded. If you guys dont mind helping a rookie I will probably ask for information on a regular basis as I get into this project. I tried to attach a picture. I hope it works.

$100.00? I'd say you did good.

Here is a picture of one I got at the Salvage yard for $20. Probably one of the cheapest engines I've bought. It was missing the head. Before and after pictures.
