Cattail Foundry is an Amish run foundry not far north of you. They can cast parts for you and they also stock parts from their catalog like mufflers and cart parts. Here is their info.

I have never been in contact with Cattail, but I have heard that when you call you leave your number and they'll call you back. No phone at their place but somewhere else?

That engine has the real early block type latch out and no speed control. That size engine eventually became 4hp when they changed to the type F spark plug later type F. Rob

The phone is in a separate booth at the edge of the field, but it is near the office.

Dennis Peters may have the wheels and cart for your engine. His reproduction carts are second to none. Would be worth a call. He has the wheels cast at Cattail. Cattail is excellent to deal with, fair prices and prompt in delivering the goods.

My engine is the same size as yours. It has 24 in. flywheels, 4 in piston and the serial no. is 985 which makes it a 1907. When I found the engine it was missing the shroud,muffler and ignitor- later went back and found the missing parts. The interesting thing about my engine is that it is tagged 1&1/2 HP
