I found this interesting engine at an auction, that has no description associated with it :shrug: . I called the auctioneer, and was told all they have are the two photos, don't know the engine maker, and have had a lot of calls on it :rolleyes: …… Can anyone identify the engine from the attached photos :uhoh: , I can't ? Maybe I’ll go and just buy the IHC LA on a cart :crazy: , but I NEED :p another unusual engine project to work on HELP... me :( .

Missing parts- Capital
if you look in the crates on the back of the engine there is a connecting rod, id bet theres a piston there too.. :shrug:

Scooby got it. Capital made in writesville PA. Piston and rod are out but there. Saw that engine probably 20 years ago.

That same query regarding the Dissinger Capital showed up in this thread last week:

And here's the auctioneer's website:

Here is another little tid bit about that place. When I saw the capital there was a 1 1/2 hp new holland that was serial number 13. Don't see it in the listing. Don't know what happened to it. That fellow never sold anything.

The item from Salem Ohio is in reference to the green Deming water pump.
Hopefully the connecting rod does match the engine but it is a little different style than other large Capital engines I've seen.

I talked to the auction company today and as of right now they will not have a fork lift or skid steer there. That's going to make load out a pain for those engines not on carts.

Most of the missing parts were found spread out in different areas and brought back to the Capital engine. I think the only things still missing were the brass tag and crank guard. The head and rear of the base had weld repairs.
