Talking GEE!, I don't know what happened on the

way, but I decided to stop at the "FLEA" market as you never know what one wil find on such a nice day. I Just made it down the 1st. row, and a non-engine friend spotted me and said follow me quick. Over here in the next row on a guy's pick up are a couple of engines . Well, over we went and sure enough, there they were. One was a nice barn fresh Stover K with a WICO-EK that still had the crank shield. It was greasy, nice and loose(not sloppy) with good compression. He said his dad had it running 12 years ago before he passed on and it's just been sitting in the barn. The other one was an Ideal mower engine that had nice noisy/grinding bearings . Only one followed me home for just a bit more than the price of a rebuilt WICO . Got to go take it out of my pick up. Sure love them "FLEA" markets.

Thanks Randy: Today, any find is a good find. The EK was dead , so I took it all apart, cleaned out all the old oil , let it sit in the sun for awhile to dry real good. Brought it into the shop, cleaned the points, put it together and then in my Mag tester. "YES" , we have ignition. NICE
