Photos taken Jan 1 - 2006

Several engine collectors got together in Sandwich, IL on Jan 1 for some engine fun.  There were 3 models running and one engine that was dismantled.   A great way to start the year off.

3hp Independent Harvester - Engine was stuck when I purchased it several years back.  On Jan 1,2006; We were successful in getting the head off (~1.5 hours) and then the piston out (10 minutes).  A little more time was spent getting the stuck Pull Rod off and the Rocker Arm.  The brass padlock was found in the hopper.   Now to get the rest of the parts located and the engine put back together and running.
