I do not have any information on this engine except that it has a date plate on the bottom that says 1999. Should anyone have any information like, was this a kit or was it a scratch build, I will post that information here. What I do know is that someone sure did a nice job as there was a lot of attention paid to even the smallest details. The workmanship, fit and finish is nothing less than 1. Class and everything works as it should. The wooden stand measures 13 x 9 ½ inches and it stands about 9 ¼ inches tall to the top of the exhaust stack. It has a 5 inch flywheel and the bore and stroke measure approximately 1.125 x 1.500. It weighs 12 lbs. It reminds me of a hit and miss style engine but it has no governor to hold the exhaust valve open for freewheeling. I did not get a ignition system with it so I ended up using a self-contained buzz coil setup that will be included in this sale. I did need to adjust the timing of the ignition points so they closed at TDC to trigger the buzz coil. If you want to add or make your own ignition system I can remove the buzz coil from this sale and reduce the price by my cost on that item. I ran this on Coleman lantern fuel with the throttle opened slightly and the mixture screw out slightly less than ¾ of a turn. I spun the flywheel twice with my finger over the air inlet to pull the fuel up and on the next spin of the flywheel, right before the compression stroke it started. Here is the web link for my video on this engine. You should have some mechanical experience with small engines to get this to run properly. ALL SALES ARE FINAL! The box measures 25 x 13 x 14 and will weigh around 22 Lbs. 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 like 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!!
