This is a 5hp Desjardins Hit Miss Engine. The engine is nearly all original including the paint and clutch pulley. I recently rebuilt the magneto and ignitor. There is no way to date the engine because Desjardins did not use serial numbers, but from what I can gather the engine is from the 1920s. I restored the industrial cart with all new wood, the wheels are on needle bearings so the 900lbs engine moves around easily. The engine starts on the first try every time, I have it dialed in to run slowly and reliably. Please look at the photos and watch the video for the condition. If you have any questions please ask, thanks. The item “Desjardins 5hp Hit Miss Antique Engine, all Original with Cart” is in sale since Sunday, July 05, 2015.
