Stickney 1 3/4hp Gasoline Engine
This engine has been mechanically restored from the bottom up. Every piece was apart and fixed or replaced if needed. All of the work was performed by professionals. Here is a summary of the work that was done:
The cylinder was cleaned up and new piston rings were installed.
A new connecting rod was made.
The main bearings and connecting rod bearing have had new babbit poured.
The flywheel faces and rims were smoothed and clear coated.
A new cam gear was made and mounted.
Most of the parts in the governor box were rebuilt including the gears, shaft and rocker arms.
A new coil was wound for the coil tube.
The muffler and gas tank are reproductions.
Like many Stickneys, the block was cracked and has been welded. It is a great job.
It is unlikely you will ever have to do another thing mechanically to this engine. I will leave the painting up to you because some people prefer the rustic look. Once an engine has been painted, it is hard to get that back. I used the same logic with the gas tank. Right now it is nice and shiny. I have read that if you want an aged look, you can submerge the metal in a mixture of water and bleach. This will supposedly dull the galvanizing to make it look old.
I had a hard time arriving at a price for this engine. I had to pay quite a bit for it in rough condition and spent a lot of money getting it back to like new mechanical condition. They do not come up for sale very often as they are a very desirable size in the Stickney line. They are easy to move around and still retain the characteristics of their larger brothers. The ones I have seen sell have brought between $8,000 and $11,600 and were in fair condition. I have decided on $10,250 for this engine.
The engine can be seen in advance of purchase. Email me and we can make arrangements. I will crate and ship this engine to anywhere in the world if you schedule and pay for all of the shipping. There will be a $75 crating fee to cover crating materials. I can also store the engine at no additional cost for up to one year as long as it is paid for in advance. I can also make arrangements to deliver the engine to the Coolspring show in June or the Rollag, MN show around Labor Day.
