Got my engine

Went to another auction this morning, looking for a hit and miss engine. Didn't have anything for me.
Swung over to tractor/farm engine show and found a 1 1/2 hp Hercules engine in good mechanical shape and with all original parts and paint (whats left of it). The seller was pushing me not to clean it up by painting or replacing oilers with brass units.....that thing about antique stuff.
Screw that, it gets torn down and gussyed up over the winter.






Next, I need to rig it to BBQ somehow.

How in the hell do you size these pics so as not to blow out the page?

Have it run a paddle setup so you can make gravy.

Looks good, Rag. Congrats on the find.

Congrats on the acquisition.

Strangely enough I've been on the road this weekend gettin' the kid off to college and saw a guy with 3 - yes 3 of them on a trailer headin' north. Each one was a different size. Don't even have a clue what HP they were but they went from relatively small to huge by my way of thinkin'. Didn't even know 'bout them 'til recently and now I've seen 3 of 'em.
