How is the Cond. of the Engine, Frozen up, Loose or Pretty nice, All this plays into the price, If it IS in pretty good Shape, if he's askin 4, He should go with 350, would be about right here in Good ole ga,Larry KF4LKU

it is all there and clean looks like the rod assemble has been redone looks like all it needs is a gas tank to me.He said he paid 4 for it and now has no time to get it going .so 4 is the least he will take.I was just wanting one to run a ice cream maker but don't want to over pay as I know very little about them.Is the Dishpan a less desirable unit ?

Mine is a throttle govrned but they may have been offered both ways. A throttle governed will have a linkage rod to the mixer to control a butterfly in the mixer. A hit and mis will have an exhaust valve lock to hold the exhaust valve until the engine speed slows back down. Bill K

Oh and welcome to the stak.

I have a dishpan hit and miss and I gave 350 for it out of the barn it had rested in for many years.Needed some work to be right for sure..
I would say 400 for 1 that just needs a tank and freshened up is fair enough.

And I forgot to add that was in december of 1990 when I gave 350.

If it has a Mag. it is probably a throttler.They are still good running engines.

My dishpan is hit and miss with rotary mag.Runs fine on mag.
But it has to be in good shape to run slow as we like them to.
Does this engine have the big cover with service doors on it?
Mine came with that but I have never run it on there.It basicly looks like a freezer with flywheels!

Is it on steel frame or wood skids? Is it on a set of Fairbanks trucks or some type of cart? Does it have the crankguard, original pulley, and original oiler? Those three items could run about $200.00 to get all three. The gas tank is $75.00. Any mag work is extra $$$ also. Is it worth $400.00, probably. I'm putting together a h/m dishpan at the moment and I would guess I've got more in it than it's worth, but thats our hobby and thats how we relax and unwind. If you want that engine, get after it, enjoy it, and have fun. Thats how I look it.

I know you will like it, I have a Dishpan that belonged to my Grandfather, it is my best running engine, goes all day only needs grease, oil and gas to keep going. Some of my others require much more attention.
