There only a few of the large engines brought any money at all. Did the rest go to scrapers? Ron

Paul, were any engines at the auction running? All the engines listed on the site you posted say "AS IS, NOT RUNNING". A lot of them sure went cheap!

I hope the Jones engines didn't go to a scraper. I'd like to have the pulley if usable so if you bought the engine then PM me.

I watched a video on you tube and I couldn't believe all the Delco light plants there. I imagine most went to scrap cause not many people collect these. That is also the most Delco 4 cylinder engines Ive ever seen. Wish I would of went. Sure could of used some Superior parts too.

Well, my crank (35hp) journals are rusted down pretty far and I guess they could be welded up and turned down but I have been looking around here for a replacement that would be possibly cheaper. Also the inside rear of the cylinder is cracked half way around. Thanks
