Default Well It finally happened! (12hp Foos JK)

Here are some pictures of a 12hp Foos JK that I have known about for years and was never for sale. Well patience and persistence does pay off ! The owner finally agreed to sell it to me and I couldnt wait to get it home.
It needs lots of TLC to get it running again and I have already started making the necessary repairs.

OK: It runs in Connecticut but you need to prove that it will run in PA at Coolspring in 2012. Celebrating 125 Years of Foos Engines. Why not just have all your Foos engines at Coolspring in 2012.

What a great engine. Good job getting it running. My wife was here when I watched the video and laughed when she saw your shop. I have told her that mine wasn't the only shop in the world with too many treasures and little room for walking. My kind of shop and a great engine.

Nice Find, Todd! It`s nice to see that there are some REAL engines being found in CT with actual photos! I might have to take a ride down to see this one sometime. You certainly seem to know where to find them!
