I came across 2 of these little motors while picking up a K90 off of CL. These are little 3/4 and 1 hp 2 strokes with a generator and a water pump. Since buying these 2, I’ve been looking to buy more items with these little engines on them. So far I have found a chainsaw and a drill. Anyone have any info on these or items to sell? So far the list of equipment these were on that I've found include the four mentioned above plus, circular saw, boat motor, hedge trimmer, bicycle power, ice auger, dirt auger, snow thrower, mini bikes. tiller and leaf blower. I'm sure there are quite a few more.





Here's a video of the generator running

I've got a Tiny Tiger (Ohlsson & Rice) generator also. I've been looking for carb rebuild parts....can't find any. Do you know of a source?

Thanx

OR engines were very popular on model airplanes for a number of years. I've got a .45, a .60 and a .90 in my old stuff. The fuel had to have castor oil for lubrication on these old timers otherwise the cylinder would score. Think they quit making them in the early '50's.

Didn't know they had made the bigger engines.

I had two chain saws powered by O&R engines..shoulda kept them,but they both refused to run well and carb parts were very hard to find after the late 70's when my dad got them given to him,so they sat around "forever" and eventually got scrapped when I junked an old truck bed full of iron I'd collected over the years--I could have used the bars and chains off them on some other saws,that you cant seem to buy anymore,for 1/4" pitch chain..

I had a "Tiger" generator years ago too,but only got it to run for about 15 minutes before it seized itself up solid...had plenty of oil in the fuel,I think it was run on straight gas before I found it though..

One of my small engine service manuals shows "Advanced Engine Products" as being the makers of O&R engines..no adress or other info posted about them,unfortunately..

Just wanted to add an update for anyone looking for information or parts for Ohlsson and Rice O&R compact engines. New site is at OhlssonandRice.com
We are now part of the MoM forum which is a much more user friendly format than our old site was. Still plenty of pics for many applications of the O&R engines.
