Here is a exceptionally nice and original 2hp headless Witte Iron Works hit miss engine. It still retains the majority of its original 3 color paint scheme. Inside of the crankcase, connecting rod, crank cheeks and crank guard are red. The valve chest, mixer, exh lever, cam gear and detent blade are silver. The rest is dark green with bare metal flywheel rims. I seriously doubt this engine has ever spent a night outdoors. Mechanically this engine is like new. It is tight, no slop or wear anywhere on it. Compression is excellent, flywheels run true. Starts very easy and runs fantastic. The fuel tank looks to be a new reproduction, oiler is not original but is a vintage piece and does not look out of place. This would be an earlier Iron Works engine however the tag is missing. Luckily Witte stamped the s/n on crankshaft and it is 16387 which would make this a 1914 engine. The 1 under the keyway is not part of the s/n but an assembly number. Both gib keys are also stamped with # 1. There are no frost cracks on this engine however it has had some repair. The exh lever has an old braze repair which appears well done and solid. There is also a piece missing from the lower piston skirt. No repair was attempted here, it does not affect how the engine runs at all. There is also what appears to be a copper brace fitted around back end of cylinder. I’m not sure what to make of this, there is original green paint all over the outside of it which would mean this was added at the factory. I did not see any obvious signs of damage around this area. The piston fits very nicely in the bore, there is no clunk or knock from this area. I have not removed the piston or disassembled the engine in any way to investigate further. I’ve put about 20hrs run time on this engine with zero issues. The only thing it could really use is a proper iron works muffler and a better set of skids. Engine weighs about 300lbs uncrated. Here is a video of the engine running. Please note the funky muffler and my battery box are not included in this sale. 2hp Witte Iron Works – YouTube. Video will open in a new window.
