Photo 2-1/2hp Schramm Engine

I would like to share some pictures of a 2-1/2hp Schramm engine I picked up yesterday. I was wondering if anyone else has or has seen one of these before. I've had a couple of them that were air compressor engines but I've only seen one other stand alone engine like it.

Here is a link to some more pictures of it.

Jon,
No, never seen one like this one. Some similarities to Sharples, Toronto, Burkett, etc. Carb is quite different, rocker arm arrangement different, flywheels & gov. weight quite similar. Does not appear to be dual ignition, no speed or spark advance levers. Is Wico PR & bracket original? Cast "X" bracing inside hopper on sides? Oiler pipe cast in place? Is crankguard part of base casting or removeable? Where is spark plug opening?

Jon, looks like it's very heavy made and would be for industrial rather than farm type applications. I remember seeing one several years ago at a show. Very few out there I would think.

Here is a 2 Hp of mine running, also got a couple air compressor engines. Kind of like the Schramm engines the way they run.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATiy0...5aBsg&index=29

I have a stand alone compressor and I am looking for the crowned flywheel for it, mine is missing. If anyone knows of one that might be available, I would be interested. I don't have the dimensions but it is between 24" to 28" in diameter. The crankshaft diameter is 2".

Hi Doug

It is not dual ignition but it does have an advance and retard lever. I'm sure the PR bracket is original. There doesn't seem to be any x bracing. The oiler pipe isn't cast in place. The crankguard is removable. The spark plug is behind the muffler.


JBoogie This engine came not to far from you and your dad's shop. I thought about stopping by but I had to get home for some reason.

Jon, Real nice engine. Here is one I have had around for some time. I need a head and all the parts that bolt to the head. Any parts available?
