|A few days ago a friend
came visiting and brought along an engine he and his son started working
on many years ago. There are no markings on it that I can see and
he has no idea what it might have been from. It is air cooled and
2 stroke and the magneto does say "Wico" but I can't find a model number.
Please let me know if you can help identify this engine. I wish I
had taken the time to take some measurements.
Also on this page are some pictures of a couple of very nice models of Domestic engines. They were made about a dozen years ago by Dick Shelly and are owned by a friend of mine. Since they are stored at my house my brother and I get to "play" with them every so often. The first one is a spark plug ingited "Stovepipe" and the other is an igniter fired hopper cooled engine. The "Stovepipe" is 1/2 scale.
There are larger pictures hidden behing the thumbnails.
|The aluminum cylinder has a steel or iron sleeve.|
|The blower housing is cast iron. The big end of connecting rod is not split.||This magneto is labeled as a WICO.|
|Interesting crankshaft design.|
