Default New Toy - Herc 8hp SK Throttler

In case any of you were wounderin yes I'm still in the hobby. I've just been off the net because of work. I thought I'd share one of my new toys. Here is a 1 of 6 know to exist Herc 8hp SK Throttler. Runs like a top. If any of you are going to Coolsprings I'm takin it and my 8hp Witte. And prolly a few other small engien to get rid of.

Chase..Here is a picture of my 8hp SK throttler. The carb is missing along with the control arms so I'm converting it to a hit and miss. Dave.

Maybe you should make that 1 of 7 known? I have one I'm currently working on. Trying to decide if I should sleeve it or just live with the pitts. I've got to get this thing on wheels it's heavy!!! How slow have you gotten yours to run? I dont know if know but there was a water injection valve in the hole between the top 2 head bolts with a line that runs to the throttle body. Have fun at Coolsprings. Mark.

I had it chuggin along at 280rpm and it ran smooth. I havnt tried to slow it down because I'm still tryin to get the rings to set. Compression wasnt the greatest, and I was just runnin off of the mixer bowel and well it doesnt run very long off of that. Soon I'll be tryin to slow it down a little more, I'll keep you guys updated.
