Default 8HP Witte serial#6550

I am looking for info and pictures on this engine. It has a schebler carb on it. I think it is original, but under the rod and crank is painted red. John

I doubt the Schebler carb is original. The engine would have been green, but the very early ones were not as dark a green as the later ones. The connecting rod and crankshaft, inside of the crankcase, and inside of the sheetmetal crankguard were red. The camgear, rocker arm, and valvebox were silver. Al Wait
