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

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.
