Default Johnny Boy

I got my Associated Johnny Boy fired up this weekend. Man that is fun to watch and listen to.

This was the first time I used Coleman fuel (white gas). It sure ran good on this stuff.

I do have a question on the cylinder oiler: How many drops per min. should it give?

Also, could someone please post a photo of an original cart? I understand it was like a wheel barrow.

John, I have been told that six to eight drops a minutes without a load is about right.Associated made a wheelbarrow and a four wheel cart for there engines.Bill Graves that advertises in GEM and Harry's has some repo's of both for sale.

Hi John, Here's a pic of a hand truck, IF it works. I have some spare repro handles but no wheels or the axel. Greg.

I have several re-printed instruction manuals, and they all state 10-15 drops per minute for all the Associated range of engines, but I think with well bedded-in piston and cylinder and an engine not running at its rated speed then slightly less would be safe. I set my Hired Man at 15 dpm and it chuffed out blue smoke, so I turned it down a bit.
