Photo 6 HP United Type F Picture


Quite a while ago I said that I would put a picture of my 6 HP United F up on here... and here it is!

This engine was as barn fresh as they come... (even came from a barn ) The valves were stuck and the ignitor was rusted up a bit but as soon as those were taken care of the engine fired right up. Since that time we've replaced a cracked cam gear, made some shafts, fixed a cracked head, and cleaned tons of junk out of the hopper. In there were a grease cup cap and a pipe wrench as well as the usual scale from years of hard water.

The former owner had (poorly) brazed the head at one time, using half of an ox shoe inside the head to keep things aligned for brazing.

It came on the remains of a sawrig which has since been rebuilt in the small shop on our farm; even the tapered axles were fabricated there.

Since then we've shown the engine a few times and used it around the farm to buzz up firewood. Sure is a nice running (and working) engine.
