Default Stolen Engines

I`m posting this for a friend with no computer or phone. He was in the process of moving to another house & noticed this past weekend that some stuff was missing from his old place (& shop). They took tools, wheel weights, some scrap iron, old buzz coils & some engines & parts. The engines were,

NOVA Jr., old style with fuel pump & ball carb.

1-1/2HP GRAY (raised letter) it was missing the rocker arm, support & governor.

An air-cooled IDEAL, not sure of the HP but they took it off the original skids & left them. (?)

Also stolen was an inverted UNITED STATES 2HP hopper cooled engine. (original paint) This was apart at the time & they got everything but the piston, rod, governor & ignitor.

He`s checking into the local scrap yards since the price is high right now. I don`t have any serial #`s of the engines but the 2hp U.S. should stick out. This was in Central Ohio.

Please e-mail about any leads.
