This is a really nice home built air cooled flywheel engine model. It was built a few years ago by great machinist and his skills are quite evident in its craftsmanship! I believe it started out as a Nelson Brothers engine and several modifications were made. It has a counter balanced crankshaft and a spark timer setup on it.It has 9 inch flywheels so it is a pretty good sized model. It has excellent compression and shouldn't take much to make noise as it was a running engine not very long ago.
The oiler stem needs repair and it needs a throttle linkage from the rod to the carburetor as it was lost somewhere along the way but this should be a pretty straightforward piece to make. No other cracks, breaks, or repairs that I can see or know of. It is presented nicely on skids with a gas tank and includes the starting crank for it. It is a very unique engine that is sure to turn heads at the shows!This would be a fine addition to your early air cooled engine collection! I can deliver for free (or a cold beverage) to Coolspring, PA, later this year. It can stay here as long as needed as long as it's paid for.
