Finally got over the hurt of the engine tipping over and breaking a flywheel we started the restoration process. My kids and I pulled out the pistons the bore and the cylinders look great, getting the freeze crack in the water jacket welded. Removing the other flywheel was a challenge using 2 ten ton portapowers made it easier. Took the base off the old timbers (the reason it tipped over) and now have new red oak to build skids for the engine. Back to work for the next 3 weeks so wont get much done. If anyone has a spare flywheel (clutch side left hand engine) drop me a note.

Here are some pictures of the flywheel being removed. I had to build a "A" frame to remove very heavy fiywheel.

Your short crank tells me you have a Sistersville style. Would you be interested in a flywheel from a long crank engine (no bolt flange for flywheel) Bill Klein

Hi Bob, sorry to here about the flywheel. I remember when it came into our yard when I was picking up my clutch. Will keep a lookout for one. Good Luck. Phil

Well I got the cyl back from Eric and he did a great job of welding the crack on the main cyl. It went half way around and had some field repair done on it many years ago, had led wire pounded into the crack to seal it up. If only I could get over my broken arm an thumb(great Minn winters and ice!) I could get back to work on some of my projects. Next step is to build the skids and paint the base and get it mounted.Still looking for a flywheel. No luck yet.
Thanks,
Bob "Fezzy" Hanauer
