I think the guy working on the 12 HP is Kevin Pulver.

The 12 HP Hercules/Economy engines generally sell in the $3500 to $5000 range for properly complete operating engines. The proper cart or lack of will affect the price.

Yeah, Kevin's 12hp Champion was running at the Old Trusty show. Still missing the hopper, and the hand fabricated head drew a lot of attention.

Thanks for asking Rex. Due to lots of help from friends both near and far, and a God-given wild imagination. We got the Champion running in time for the Clay Center Ne. Show. It started easily and only stopped for fuel every few hours. (We had a temporary 1 quart mower tank) If someone could direct me to the most helpful post on photos, and maybe "hold my hand" and walk me through it, I have some good digital images I would like to share here with you guys.

Kevin's Engine turned out great. I was lucky enough to see it running at Clay Center too. The effort and workmanship required to get what I would almost call a boat anchor to running condition was unbelieveable. Hope you post pictures for all to see. If you have a spare 12 HP Hercules hopper around, let Kevin know. He needs it to finish his engine.

Tony, I tried to email you but the computer said you had set things up so as not to get any emails from here. You can call me collect @ 402-752-3757 or email me: pulver7@alltel.net. I am interested to hear what you have. Thanks, and Happy Thanksgiving, Kevin
