That round ring or disc or what ever you want to call it on the pulley end is the way you crank that sucker. Looks like a motor that was on a New Holland something or other. Kind of like the flywheel start on old John Deere. Good luck. Keep us up to date on your progress.

For $50 you should go right over and get it before they change their mind or find a different person.

Even if the block was cracked you could sell the good parts and not only get your $ back, you would make someone happy that needed a part.

Sorry, have no idea how to start it.

Super engines and you got a good deal if it runs.

The wheel on the back side is for starting. Flip it counter clockwise. The mag should click loudly. If it does pull one spark plug [or at least the wire] and see if its throwing a spark. Both cylinders fire at the same time on that engine. One spark is wasted in the exhaust of the "other" cylinder.
I have heard several places to check the oil pump on one that has set for an extended time. To do that loosen the external oil line that is tucked in above the mag and spin the engine. If oil comes out and runs down the side of the block, all is good.

Packard 440 or equivalent, metal wire core high tension wire. Do not use modern carbon core automotive wire - it has too much resistance and can damage the mag. A good auto supply, like NAPA, should be able to supply you with wire and replacement ends. If you can't find them, contact Lee Pederson, a sponsor here on the Stak. He should have both the wire and replacement ends for your engine.

Hi

It would pay to pull the oil pan and check the oil pump. That engine uses a piston pump with 2 check balls one in the very bottom and one in the piston. They have a habit of sticking to the seats when the engine is stored for long periods of time.

If you do this there are 2 bolts that go up from the bottom on the oil pan that have to be removed besides all the bolts in the upper flange.

The WICO magneto is one of the easy ones to work on.

I agree with Phil. Remove the pan and give it a good cleaning. There's likely to be plenty of sludge in there. No need to have your engine sipping oil from a dirty oil pan

Mark the position of the mag before it comes off just for future reference. If you haven't done so already.
