Default engine trade

I have a chance to trade a running Fairbanks dishpan engine and some cash for a 5hp Waterloo Boy K model. But the 5hp is missing its govenor and ignition, but otherwise basically complete with pulley. Any opinions?

I would do it. I would rather have a Waterloo engine then a dishpan. Nothing against Fairbanks Morse, I have owned some. Just that the Waterloo is rarer. Just my $0.02 worth. Mike

If the both of you are happy with the deal , DO IT. We are always sorry for the deal we didn't make, rather than the deal we did make!!!!

Steve, the trip mechanism for the Wizard magneto on a "K" is an odd duck...check around to be sure that you can locate one. Strong runnning throttler once you get it set up right. GV
