Hey guys, I now own my first OFE!!! I bought the Berry engine from my uncle near Petrolia when we went out there to go to the Coolsprings meet. He has had it for a number of years. It doesn't run, it will take some work to get it to, nothing too extensive though. I haven't been able to bring it home yet though, because I am recovering from brain surgery. I look forward to bringing it home soon. I will post some pictures of it soon. Sam

Thank you, Bill!! I am back to work again, and pretty well up to normal(but most people who know me would say I am anything but!!!) Haha!! I am looking forward to bringing that big beauty home!! It had a homemade flatbelt pulley bolted to the inside of the left flywheel that was belted to a waterpump and fan which sat behind an old honeycomb radiator, those are not in the best of shape, and not on the engine's skid anymore. I plan on tank cooling it. I brought some parts home with me, oilers, and intake & exhaust valves with housings. I will keep you all updated!! Take care, Sam

Hey Paul, I will have to call my uncles and ask them for the bore and flywheel diameter. I am going to guess the flywheels are about 60 inches in diameter. I will find out and let you know. Your engine looks to be in pretty good shape. Thanks for sharing a pic of it! Take care, Sam

Rich
I guess they did it to clean out mineral deposits and other dirt?
My 8 and 15 Evans both have them on the bottom of the cyl.

Hey Paul, I know its been a long a time since this thread has been added to. I have measured the flywheels on my Berry, and I came up with 60" flywheels, 9.5" bore, and 14" stroke as well, but I have been told it is rated at 15 horsepower. I have brought home the clutches, governor, all the old piping that was there, the old radiator and waterpump/fan. Sorry it has been so long since I have replied with the measurements from my Berry. Take care, Sam
