Default Federal oil engines Melbourne

Hi, my son Colin just picked up two Federal oil engines, one is 2 hp the other is a 4hp. The 2hp is missing the valve chamber, hot box & fuel system. The 4hp is 95% complete just need to flush the fuel system out. any info would be nice. We have been chasing these engines for a long time now tried to upload photos, not sure it worked.

Nice engines! The reason they're upside down is because they are located in the southern hemisphere, otherwise known as Upsidedownland.

we got the 4hp runing today . we had to replace the small end bush re whitemetal the bigend bearing & machine. Adjust the main bearings & setup the fuel system which is not complete so we made parts as per a very old photo so im looking for any info that may be out there. It ran ok for first time, the fuel system is the key so any info would be nice. pete

Well a update to the federal engines as stated in a earlier post the 2 hp engine was missing parts, the remains of a 3 hp came up on eBay we were able to buy it. We were pretty sure the parts were interchangeable yes we had a win it won't take much to get it running now
