Wink LAST ENGINE. Well, I couldn't get much closer to

the end of the year for my last engine ..... in 2004. It's just a IHC 1 1/2HP "M", but that OK with me . I took it up to my son Billy's place, and guess who shows up just after I unloaded it with the response, NEATO, does it run? We spent the next 20 minutes listening to the thump thump of the "M". Sure is sweet music on the next to last day of the year in 45 degree, sunny weather . What was your last engine purchase and the last one run in 2004

This one here was my last purchase and will probably be the last one run in 2004. I just got it running today!

It's just a CT2 but it took less than 2 hours (and a new gas tank) to bring back to life. It's got tons of compression and runs as quiet and smooth as you could want.

Hi Tom: Nice Victor with the snow on it. Good one to get. Jim, the 4HP Mogul screen cooled is a "REALLY" nice find, and just getting someone to sell it. Must have been the Christmas/New Years season spirt and a lot of "GREEN" . Really, any find from an old B & S to a Callahan is a good find for those of us with "RUSTITUS".

Well.... The last engine I bought was this Fuller & Johnson 9 HP type K. I purchased it last spring from a gentleman in Indiana who had it advertized in GEM. I added a nice set of original trucks and took it to about 3 shows this year.



As far as the last one used was my 6 HP F & J N that I sawed up my Slab Pile with. And you don't want to see that Grubby thing...

JKKD

How about posting a pic of the other side so we can see how it powers the
large pulley. What is the final rpm's of the drive shaft to the freezer.

I have wanted to put something like this together for years. I have a
1 1/2 LB that should be perfect.

Thanks
