Default Aeromotor engine

Found one that is complete with the governor in the flywheel. Cannot find any C/B/W. Does start and run. What is a fair price to offer? Oh, where are the places that aeromotors generally have problems, I mean, what generally is broken or missing. Just want to give know so I can give it a better going over before I offer a price. Thanks for any and all help.

Sounds like one of the later ones. Probably $1500-2000 maybe? That is if it is in great shape and all original.

Thumbs up Re: Aeromotor engine

Aermotors are nice little runners. Desirable too probably because of their weight...or lack of. The one with the governor in the flywheel is the later style but still can be as early as 1908. the flywheels are really thin on them. They tend to have damage because of that. Ive seen gears on the pumping side that were almost worn off. also the ears on the carb that the gas tank mounts to tend to break easily. but I would still say they go in the 1300-1800 range for the new style in good shape.
