Default Homelite C 7 ?

yikes , another one came home
from the show yesterday
a homelite
blower inverted engine
its serial number is 42 F 10008
it looks almost like the c7 generator sets
but no generator
just a pully on the back

it has some olive green paint left on it
is it ww2 or later ?
it is complete , missing the spark plug wire
but froze up

I have one that looks really similar to yours. It was stuck when I got it, but it was the ball bearings on the crank that were rusted solid. Found new bearings at a local bearing co. Have yet to reassemble it. I really can't tell what the original color was, just has thick orange paint. Came with a huge muffler/pipe assy. Good luck with yours.

Go to YouTube to the Mustie1 channel and look up 2nd antique gen set. He has a engine like yours.
