Will it turn over? What is the object in the flywheel spokes on the RH (flat pulley) side? Looks like the exhaust was turned down back in there too...

Those engines were made to run forever! That's a fun project for sure....it's alive!

A treat to listen to as theyy chug chug coast chug along , while i see these at old engine and tractor shows seem the rarer item is something for it to power . water pump, wood spliter,grain mill . I have seen on you tube people who have mounted these to tractors just to move them under their own power

At the recent fair there was a collector who had some of these on display and had one running the whole day, I shot some video of it but have no idea how to post it here.

No, I'm talking about the object in the spokes of the flywheel. Black, looks like the end of the exhaust pipe but just doesn't belong in there....

I'm familiar with the flat belt.....

Built this from raw castings a number of years ago.
