Double check that model number again. Could the first letter be the letter N? I will also need to do some checking in my Hercules stuff over the weekend.

Exclamation Re: Hercules two cylinder, crank start

I may have an owners manual for the Hrec BxB I had one in a US Motors generator outfit. The engine is the same as used in the small JD tractor. My engine used Champion J-8 sparkplugs.
