Re: I think I have an Engine

Well it followed me home.... Thanks for your note Ken but running it would involve some ignition parts and probably a carb. rebuild. It does turn over and I'm pretty good at engine building so I'll strip it down, clean it up, replace & rebuild as needed. 20170930_123148.jpg 20170927_163832.jpg 2...
