To the lower 48 US States only! From what I have learned the castings for this engine were made in a limited number by Debolt machine back in the late 80′s to the early 90′s. This is the first one of these that I have found in my past 20 years of building and restoring model hit and miss engines. Should you have any other information on this engine, please pass it along and I will place that info in this ad. Since there is not a lot of information out there on this engine I do not know the actual scale. My best guess is that it is ½ scale. The flywheels are 9 inches in diameter. Including the wooden display stand, the engine stands 25 tall to the top of the gas tank. The engines itself, not including the wooden base is 17 ½ inches tall. Total engine width from the outside edge of the aluminum pulley to the end of the crankshaft is approximately 12 ¾ inches. The wooden base measures 10 ¼ by 17 ¼ inches and is 5 ½ inches tall. This engine weighs around 58 lbs. So to view the video you need to go to YouTube and type the video title in their search box. Perkins Vertical side shaft model Hit and Miss model engine. You are encouraged to ask questions should you have any. Ignition; The spark for this engine is provided by a Make Brake ignition system. This system works by hooking a battery up to a low tension coil. When the contacts inside of the combustion area are closed, the coil is charged. When the contacts open quickly a spark is produced. The included low tension coil appears to be a restored original coil. The attached tag on the coil says; Shaw Electrical Co. Fuel system; This is a gravity fed fuel system with the gas tank mounted above the fuel mixer. There is a check ball that prevents fuel from running out of the tank when the engine is not running. I strongly recommend to drain the fuel out of the tank after running. Over the years I have cleaned out more fuel tanks and fuel mixers/carburetors than you could imagine due to people not draining the tanks dry when they were finished running the engine. I used some canned 4 cycle gas from Home Depot with a slight amount of castor oil added to it for upper cylinder lubrication. You can use pump gas, Naptha or Coleman fuel. Keep in mind that most all pump gas contains at least 10% methanol along with a ton of chemicals that leaves a white crusty buildup (methanol is corrosive to some metal parts, especially aluminum) on everything it is in contact with should it be left in the tank and carb to evaporate over time. The carburetor / fuel-mixer needle adjuster I have set at ½ turn out as I show in the video. Any mixture fine tuning I did by turning the choke plate as shown in the video. When the engine takes in only one gulp of air and it fires, you know you have the mixture set correctly. Anywhere two or more metal parts rub against each other, oil it! Regular 10w 30w automotive oil will work just fine. There are two oil cups for the crank ends and there is a drip oilier for the cylinder. Fill that up with a needle oiler or small tube hooked to a oil can and ople the needle valve a few turns and you should see some oil dripping looking through the sight glass. There is a opening where you can see the crankshaft and connecting rod lower end. There is a oil hole on the crank end of the connecting rod. Don’t be shy on the oil in this area. Also squirt some oil up around the top of the connecting rod at the piston wrist pin. There is a oil drain area in the bottom of the engine so the extra oil will end up down there. The brass valve on the back of the block is for draining out excess oil buildup. NOTE: Like the real full size hit and miss engines, these engines were not designed to run at a high RPM. Running this engine too fast could cause severe damage to the engine and possibly to anyone standing near it. Whats included in the sale; The engine as shown mounted on its display/running stand. The engine has a flat belt pulley custom machines by me, that is crowned in the center. The one way starter bearing that can be mounted in the pulley is included along with the 1/2 drill chuck bit that fits into the bearing. Whats not included; You need to provide your own 12 or 6 volt power supply and wiring to attach your power supply to the terminals as the battery and battery wire shown in the video is not included. I make no guarantee on how this will run for you. You should have some mechanical experience with small engines to get this to run properly. ALL SALES ARE FINAL! The total dry weight of this Perkin’s is about 57lbs. The heavy duty plastic container the engine will be packed up in weight 10lbs. So that is 67lbs without the large amount of packing material that I will be using. I wont be packing this engine till it sells so I can enjoy looking at it a little while longer and have it available for any needed photos or measurements. This is a running handmade gasoline powered scale model engine that comes with no instructions or guarantees what so ever!! Do not stick your finger or other body parts like hair or clothing in a rotating / moving mechanical assembly!! The new owner assumes all responsibilities and liabilities to himself/herself and others with this engine. This is an adult collectible item not to be operated or played with by children. I make no clams to it being safe as it is a antique scale model reproduction of a engine that was produced back in the day when no safety guards, air bags, safety warning labels, ect.. Were attached to dangerous products. I make no claims as to how it will run for you as adjustments most likely will need to be made like fuel mixture or governor settings. By purchasing this item you are stating that you have read my whole ad, you understand it and that you agree with the terms and policy’s stated in this ad. You understand that this is a hand built reproduction of a antique engine that was manufactured back in the day before any built in safety precautions were added to mechanical devices.

This is an extremely hard to find original fuel mixer or carburetor for a Perkins hit and miss gas engine. It is in as found condition with no cracks, breaks, or repairs of any kind except for an ear on the mounting flange. It mounts on a 2 1/4 wide x 1 3/4 high mounting bolt pattern. Please measure your engine to be sure it works for your application. It needs a few screws loosened up but this should be fairly easy. The threads in the brass body are in great shape and all in all this looks like a pretty decent mixer. Original Perkins parts are quite tough to find in the wild or even at swap meets! If you’ve been looking for one to complete a restoration or to put on the shelf with the rest of your Perkins parts here it is. The pictures tell the story. It would surely beat making one!

Brass plate on engine reads Perkins Wind mill Co. Engine is mounted to 20″ by 12 3/4″ wood base. Engine has 9″ flywheels and is about 20″ to top of muffler and 12 wide. I can see where the brass fuel tank would mount but the piping is not complete to mixing valve, also wood battery/coil? What you see in the photos is all I have for this. The engine is free and turns over with compression. With exception to the fuel line and wood box the engine appears to be complete and in very good condition. This engine belonged to my late father, we shared a lot of interest but this engine was not one of them and I know nothing more about it, and can not say when or if it last ran. The listed price is set at an average of what I could find and compare on line. I will consider any reasonable offers. I will cover crating cost.

This model was machined and built from a casting kit. Many hours of machine work and assembly goes into producing a quality scale model like this. A lathe, milling machine and experienced operator were needed to finish the castings and to fabricate the additional parts required. Having to pay someone for all of the machine work and fabrication involved would cost quite a bit! A word about the photos… On my computer screen the color of the engine looks a bit brighter red than it actually is. That photo shows the actual color a bit better. The scale of this engine…. My 1/2 scale Olds has flywheels that are just under 8 inches. A couple of the 1/4 scale engines I have, have flywheels that measure in the 4 1/2 inch range and they weigh in at less than half of the 29 pounds that this one weighs. The information I found on the casting kit that this one was machined from did not list the scale of the kit. I did find a few casting kits of other makes of engines that were made in both 1/4 and 1/2 scale like the Olds. Of course that completely depends on the size of the real thing. I might not be correct as I do not have a full scale one in front of me to measure so I felt it best to point this out as I don’t want to list the wrong information in my ad. The size and weight information is in this ad. I show a Coke can in some of the photos for a size reference. I will leave it up to you as to what scale you think it is. Not including the wooden display stand this engine measures 10 3/4 inches tall (to the top of the exhaust stack). From the back of the flywheel to the tip of the exhaust rocker arm it’s 14 inches long. And from the outside edges of the flywheels it’s 7 inches wide. The wooden box it is mounted to measures 14 x 7 x 3 inches. Total height to the top of the exhaust stack including the 3 inch base is 13 ¾ inches. It weighs in at slightly under 30 lbs. Specifications on the kit this was machines from; Flywheels – 7.625 inch Bore – 1.5 inch Stroke – 2.530 inch. Ignition is provided by a antique buzz coil that is mounted under the display/running box. (shown in a photo above) There are two connections mounted on the box for electrical hook up to the buzz coil. (you only need to use one of them) One is a RCA jack (I believe that is set up for the center to be negative) and the other is two brass bolt studs for clipping on alligator clips. I used a 12 volt jell-cell battery (not included) to power the coil. This engine started up for me on the 3. Try after sitting for many years. As you can see in the video, it runs great! Here is a web link that will take you to the video of this engine running. “1/2 scale model Perkins Hit and Miss Engine” My YouTube user name is JoeKind1958. Not my real name. The fuel I use is Coleman lantern fuel with some model engine Castor oil mixed in at around 40:1. Two cycle mix will work as well. It will run on run on regular pump gas but I would not recommend it due to the methanol and corrosive additives that are now added to our once good gasoline. There is a oil cup for cylinder lubrication. 10-30wt oil works fine for that and lubricating any other moving parts. There are 3 grease cups. Turn in these cups before each time you run this engine. Turn in the cups till you see some grease coming out of the moving joint. They don’t need to be turned in all the way till they are tight. When they do get tight when turned in, then it’s time to add more bearing grease to the cups. On the fuel mixture setting. I ran it at about only ¼ turn out. When turning the fuel mixture screw in all the way to make a adjustment, just turn it in till the needle touches it’s seat. Don’t make it tight as this will damage the needle or seat. NOTE: This is a running reproduction of a antique engine. It is a adult collectable item and is intended to be used by a experienced adult. Just like the original engine, it has no safety guards in place. The bottom of the connecting rod does stick out past the back of the block when it is turned over by hand or it’s running. Loose clothing, long hair or fingers could become cough in the bottom of the connecting rod/crankshaft or any moving part when this engine is running. Simply use common sense and keep your fingers especially small fingers! Away from all moving parts! I make no guarantee on how this will run for you. You should have some mechanical experience with small engines to get this to run properly. ALL SALES ARE FINAL! As you can see there is a lot of room for protective packing material and another box if I decide to double box it. I will not be packing this up till the sale is final and it has been paid for. This is a running, gasoline powered scale model engine that comes with no instructions or guarantees what so ever!! Do not stick your finger or other body parts in a rotating mechanical assembly!! The new owner assumes all responsibilities and liabilities to himself/herself and others with this engine. This is an “adult collectible” item not to be operated or played with by children. I make no clams to it being safe as it is a antique scale model reproduction produced back in the day when no safety guards, air bags, safety warning labels, ect.. Were attached to dangerous products. I make no claims that it will even run as some might not have the mechanical ability to figure it out. Could you even imagine the 1,000 page, government regulated, congress approved (if they could agree on it) safety book that would have to be included with a Hit & Miss motor? If this were to have a modern consumer warning attached to it, it would probably advise you to wear fireproof clothing, protective boots and gloves, wear eye protection (although eye protection is a good idea) , a helmet and some sort of respirator. Wrap yourself in organic bubble wrap, mark the running site with cones and protective tape that is specified on page 885. God this country is driving me nuts!! By purchasing this item you are stating that you have read my whole ad, you understand it and that you agree with the terms and policy’s stated in this ad. I have detailed photos posted.
