Default look what followed me home

This 5 horse economy followed me home out of a fellow engine collectors barn it was very stuck and is missing a piece out of the block where it bolts to the skid but every thing is in good shape as well as the berings

Looks like a good engine. Too bad that someone has done a disservice to the magneto bracket when they drilled out the center of the ignitor and tapped it for a spark plug. It can be rehabilated to its useful self though with some T L C. How much simpler it would have been to just remove the Webster bracket and put a 1/2 tapped cover over the hole. Good luck in a good hobby. Joe Morris
