Project finished

Finished my first rebuild of a Hit n Miss engine. It's a 1925 Hercules 1 3/4 hp.
I built a new cart for it using dovetail joinery.
Used DuPont auto paint (3 sprayed coats, over primer).
Starts and runs like a bandit.

Looks cool. What do you do with something like that? I'm sure there's some show circuit or something like that. It's big at our county fair every year.

Excellent shots of the John Deer, John.
A guy at the Franklin contest was vending ice cream made on site with a John Deer.
I'm looking for equip to power off the Herc. I have a corn sheller that I picked up for my buddy that I will rebuild this winter and probably take to engine shows in the area.
Here are 2 shots of my next engine project....they ain't pretty at the beginning.
