Photo Trade school engine found in old Chicago house.

This small engine was found in a old house in the city of Chicago.

It looks to be a school project or a kit engine.....it is unmarked.

Very nicely made , the crankshaft and connecting rod are fully machined.
The Schebler carburetor is 1/2" NPT , I've not seen one that small before.
I don't think it was ever painted.

It would be interesting to find out who made it , any ideas?

The muffler and oil sight glass appear to have been liberated from an I.H.

Hi Tom

I have a similar syle engine in my gallery and in another thread, but can't import them to this thread. It has spoked flywheels. I am very interested in seeing the governor and detent as mine is missing. I anyone can import or attach them or tell me how to attach them, that would be great.

Joel

Joel,

This engine is throttled with the carb. it has no governor.
However, it runs great.

Thanks John. I need to be educated on re-posting pictures.

At least I had the "Sunday Best" trash cans for the pictures Ted. That's how we operate in Nebraska.

Sorry to hi-jack your thread Tom. That is a very nice engine.

Joel

The first engine's crankcase reminds me of a Curtiss compressor.
