Engine built from a casting kit from P. M. Research. The kit comes complete with
screws which I chose not to use and instead used stainless steel cap head allen screws.
The castings are a copy of a set originaly sold in 1894 and rated as a 1/4 HP engine.
The engine had no reverse so I added a slip eccentric to it. The crank shaft was also
made a little longer than the original on both ends for the slip mechinism and so
sprockets could be added behind the flywheel for driving accessories. The engine will
possibly end up powering a small boat.

Small Lubricator has no markings and is a bit of a mystery.
Any info on it would be appreciated. PHOTO
