Default Look what I found...

Answered an ad in the Bargain News for an "Old 1 cyl gas engine", and this ended up following me home. I know it's not the smallest ideal, think it has 11" flywheels, haven't measured it yet. Free and complete except for the mixer, and it looks like it has very little wear on it. Has neat brass plunger-type grease cups and the original muffler. This ones going up for sale, but I haven't decided if I want to get it running first or not. Any ideas about it's worth?

Thanks...

Chris

Hi Chris,

Nice one,

I believe that one has 12 " flywheels because it has the ridge on the top of the cylinder connecting the fins. 10" flywheels was the smallest they made.

Hey, I think I have a mixer for one of those. It has 1/2" pipe threads.

Gasengn -

Thanks for the offer! I checked the intake pipe, and I'll need a 3/4" lunk mixer. If anyone has one that they'd be willing to part with, send me an email.

Thanks...

Chris
