My Current Project Engine

My Current Project is a 1 1/2 hp Rawleigh Engine. As far as I know, Company records were destroyed so there is no way to get an exact age of this engine. It is known however, that Rawleigh started building engines during 1916 and then the factory burned to the ground about 1917. When I found this engine, it was completely disassembled but relatively complete. Parts necessary for the restoration included an ignitor, gas tank, various springs and new pins for the pushrod. The second picture to the left is a scan of this engine as seen in an original 1917 Rawleigh Almanac. I have tried the best I could to match this engine's original paint scheme.
