Hit 'n Miss!

K, so maybe not so shinny. Heres one of my Dad's I'm tinkering with. Finally got the thing to actually run! My students love it (I teach a small engine repair class in the Junior High).

Don't know a whole lot about it, other than its a "YATES" 1.5 horsepower. Think it might be the same thing as a Hercules model E.





Yes, that is a snowmobile carb...






Lets see the SHINNY ones!

Lets see 'em! I've got a couple of ratty old slide pics converted to digital of my Pa's other one somewhere- its a Deere. These things are so much fun to watch run...

My Dad and I used to go to antique tractor shows, and I would joke that when I retired, I was going to get one of these engines, and a lawn chair, so I could sit there watching it run, like all the other old guys. I was joking then, but now I find them...intriguing.

There's a great big tractor show near here in June. Lots and lots of those things in all sizes running. Let me go dig up some pics.

Yeah, over on this side of Missouri, there's usually a bunch of stationary engines at the St Peters Picnic every year. Then, there's the Lincoln County Old Threshers Show. That one's cool because it's larger and there are more steam engines, and tractors actually running and driving around, etc. I've got a ton of pics, but none of them online.

Supposedly there's a huge car/tractor/whatver show near Boonsville, MO every year. Never been, so I don't know (but would imagine) if there are any stationary engines there.

The tractor show near here is in Lathrop. Real cheap weekend. There is on site camping for next to nothing.

They will run anything that needs to run. Just depends on how creative you are.

This is an excellent show in NE PA.

As you come from St Louie, it's the first exit past the Missouri river (Wooldridge exit, I believe). When you're at the top of the ramp, look left across the overpass and you will see it.

And there is usually a little bit of everything there, old engine-wise.

At the British bike show in Marne, Iowa every summer they use those engines on a trailer to make ice cream! It is at Baxter cycle. It is a free event with free food at the city park. You can test ride all the new Triumphs because the factory brings in their semi-trailer rig and sets up there. I have gone the last two years and had a great time.

The saga continues. Pops is going away for a couple of years, meaning I get to "store" some of his junk. Drug home is other hit and miss engine.



The Yates did sorta run, but I'm pretty sure the magnet has gone soft on me. Can't hardly get it to pop, and havent had much luck in finding someone to remagnetize it for me.

This "new" Deere had the magnets recharged and a broken... Sparker? fixed. Supposedly just needs to be put back in and it should run. Like that's EVER happened, but it'll be fun to tinker with.
