Looks to me like it is running backwards - smoke coming out the exhaust.

Sorry, I meant the intake.

Correct! The engine is cleaned up now and I've run it correct rotation. Needed the help of a belted Wisconsin to get it going but it did run much better (and the oil pump pumps). I'm going to put it on a small trailer and need to come up with a better looking exhaust solution. If anyone has ideas please let me know. Cheers,

If you're ever in the Hanover area you may want to consider visiting RH Sheppard. They have a museum there that showcases the history of the Sheppard company.

Thanks for the comment. Uncle passed away in February. The Sheppard is for sale if you know of anyone who would be interested. I live in Virginia, but have to clear out and sell his home.

Again, sorry to hear about his passing. I will put the word out around about the Sheppard. Our club is unfortunately pretty dormant right now, too many members passing on, & not enough interest among younger people...
The Sheppard would be cool to have, but I really am at the stage myself where I should be cutting back on toys rather than accumulating...
