Default Taylor Vacuum Engine- web page

Howdy, fellow `Stakers!

I got a Taylor Vacuum Engine "for Christmas", and have put up a web page about it and my progress in getting it running. This is my first old engine- it's a 2 HP Type C.

I finally figured out what was wrong with my Wico magneto on New Years' Eve, and got my first spark at 12:10 AM! What a way to start the year!

The web page is at:

Hey there. I also have a Taylor Type C. It runs pretty good. You are correct that the funny square head bolt holds in the mixer. MAKE SURE that the check ball is not all corroded as this has a HUGE affect on the running performance of the engine. Mine is also missing the crank guard and I have a crank, but i'm sure it's not original.

I'll try to post a picture of mine a little later when the site comes back up.
