Ideal 1-1/2HP Hopper Cooled Engine
I recently acquired this engine, I had known about it for a long time. It has many similarities to the "Ideal" engine built by Goold Shapley and Muir of Canada. It is supposed to be ignitor fired, the ignitor is long gone and a spark plug adapter is in its place. If you have any information about where I can find the proper ignitor and ignitor trip mechanism please contact me! Also I am looking for the correct cast iron hopper cover, the hopper cover thats on the engine now is a cast aluminum reproduction, a new reproduction is fine, but I'd like it to be cast iron. There are a few other things that need to be replaced or repaired but all in all it's a pretty complete engine.... and I like it.
