Hola,congratulations,it is a great addition,my great grandfather Peter Eichenberger used the same R&V in the construction of wooden bridges in the town of Romang (a colony of Swiss) located 750 kms. north of Buenos Aires,Argentina.
Greetings.

Somehow and to my shame I never posted pictures of the finished engine.
Here are a few from it's first appearance at a local show.
I have taken it to a couple of shows now, but it's a bit on the heavy side for me to haul.

Harry, nice engine and beautiful presentation! Thank you for sharing it with us.

I was looking through some archives and found these photos from Coolspring in 2013. Wish I had taken more pictures...

Ah heck, rather than push all them like buttons I've decided to give all of you a LIKE. And thanks very much for sharing as it's much appreciated. Frank

Thank you for the pictures Travis. Unfortunately I wasn't at Coolspring in 2013. I hope it will be at Coolspring in 2015 as I plan to be there.
Do you happen to know how many hp it was? I assume it must be a 4 or 5hp.
There are some differences to my engine. The most obvious is that it doesn't have a speed changing device.
