Default Weeden 34 - Todays Flea Market Find

I Stopped by the local, every Sunday Morning Flea Market today and came across this engine, which is now a part of my collection. The seller was unsure of a manufacturer (as was I, initially) but it seemed to be in reasonable condition for it's age, and we could agree on a price that was acceptable to both of us so it came home with me.


Once home, I identified it as a Weeden engine from a model 34 (snowflake). I think it was from the earlier series as it doesn't have the slip eccentric reversing. I tried to run it on air, but the timing is way off, so I will have to work on that. The Black base that the engine is sitting on was not part of the deal. Just a cast Aluminum box I had sitting around that I set the engine on for pictures.
