Default Nelson Bros. Engine need Help...

I bought an engine this week at auction which I believe is a Nelson Brothers
or Nelson Brothers built. No tag hopper cooled hit miss about 1 1/2 hp. It
has more of an open base rather than a square base. It has a port on the
side of the cylinder for ignitor or spark plug. Needs a mixer, tank, muffler and
ignition parts, but not sure of which types to look for. Would like to post
photos but not sure how. If anyone has pictures of Nelson Brothers
built engines they could email me it would be greatly appreciated or any
other information.
Thanks, Huebsch...

Go to the search window over on the top right corner and click on it the type Nelson Bros then enter. You will get all kinds of info including some photos. I just posted a photo for my Dad. He is looking for a few parts for a early model Nelson Bros engine. If you like I can post your photos for you if you email them to me or some where on this site it should explain to you how to upload them. I know the photos have to be 200 kbs or smaller or it want let you upload them.
