1913 Waterloo Boy 2 1/2 hp gas engine
Original condition - Barn fresh
1912 Waterloo Boy 2 1/2 hp
This engine is 'barn fresh'. It was found 'in the wild' in a collapsed barn in
the Santa Cruz Mountains. The skids and fuel tank are rotten, so I am replacing
those pieces, but I will be leaving everything else in original condition.
I oiled it up, worked over the ignitor, replaced some springs, rigged a fuel tank, and soon got it 'chuffin'!
After a couple of hours running and oiling, it has great compression.
I need to find some steel wheels, 10"-20"dia,. to make it a portable engine.
update: found wheels, built a cart, engine skids just fit between the frame rails - perfect!
