i have the same one as the red one (1923 ihc),a 1944 fairbanks morse,an now this 1908? witte engine..........i just free'd up the engine an i got everything moving......does anyone now how these mags work?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.
i mounted my '23 ihc engine to an old sears custom ill post some pics tonightA 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
thats other pulley was to run a flat belt to run all different types of farm equipment....the guy i got it from said it was in his family for 3 generations an he can remember his dad an grandfather using it on the farm where he livesWill 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!
those are some nice looking machines.....the lil kid reminds me of my nephew riding my old tractorsHere's an example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLlFK5vf53o
or if you like green and yellow
I don't recommend mixing toddlers and machines, a bad mix but a nice tractor
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....thats other pulley was to run a flat belt to run all different types of farm equipment....the guy i got it from said it was in his family for 3 generations an he can remember his dad an grandfather using it on the farm where he lives
