Default Ideal engine with 10-inch flywheels

I am going to get one of these engines this weekend. Runs, but is not mounted on anything. Was wanting to see pictures of how y'all have built skids,trucks, platforms, whatever, to show off these neat little engines. Show me what you got! Also, based upon what I have read in the Archives, the 10-inch flywheel version is the smallest? 3/4 hp? Bluffton made?

Lastly, does a serial# list exist?

Thanks Harry! and thanks to all responders!

If it has a simple J-tube mixer like a Hercules, it is a Bluffton. If it is a Lunkenheimer style mixer, then it is an Ideal. Usually they are mounted on fairly tall skids with an integral battery box. The height also gives clearance for the gas tank. I don't have a picture handy to post, but there was one for sale last week on the Big Engine board on original skids. Hope this helps, Mike.

Here is a pic of my 2 small Ideals. The one at the front of the pic is an Ideal with 11" flywheels. The one to the rear is a Bluffton with 10" flywheels and J mixer. The skids for both engines are about the same size.

Hope this helps,
Frank
