Default 1913 United Engine

Last night my husband and I acquired a 1913 United flywheel engine. I will post some pictures later this afternoon. Anyone have any information about these motors? It is a 2 and 1/2 hp. We are really excited this is our first stationary engine. It's extremely heavy needless to say. I would say she weighs several hundred pounds. One of our first projects needs to be a cart to move it around on. We also got a 1939 John Deere B. Thanks for any information.

In the gas engine discussion threads, there is a thread, United Registry, by Dick Weber, it would be a better place for this thread, or the moderator could move it for you maybe. Does it have a tag and a number on the end of crank, and what type? I have a 6hp type A,31/2hp type A goose neck trip, and one coming by Fastenal a 21/2hp type A with straight trip, yea they are heavy, think about a 6hp with 40" wheels on it !! luckily on a no. 5 cart!, looking forward to pics and numbers!!

Dick it does have a tag and a number on it. I am not sure how to tell if its a goose neck or not. We are both very new to this so we are looking to learn. As soon as I get off work I am going to grab some pictures and post them I know it is on a skid not sure if it is the original skid or not. Looks old, but 101 years old not sure.

Hopefully these pictures will upload. There is different initials on various parts of the motor here is a sample of one of them.

That's a Nice looking engine, I also have one exactly like it if you order parts for it I think it is really a 3 hp. associated/united. just go by the alphabetical letters on the parts. i havn't got mine running either i had to get a carb for it and also some springs and a coil. i put it in a shed I don't have a cart either and it is heavy to move, good luck with it.
