Default Another McDonald

I found another McDonald last night. Its an open crank Brons injection.Stuck but complete bar grease cups/oilers on the bearings.The brass tag is gone but looking at the McDonald book I think its an SD.Made between 1933 and 1937.Looks like an easy project

Hi
If you engine is open crank it must be missing the crank guard which is tin or cast iron and fully encloses the crank

No guard there.I'll take some pics when I get it. Does anyone have a pic of what it looks like? Can it be fabricated?
