Default 3/4HP Messinger Engine is ready for Coolspring

Since there was no interest in buying it , I dragged the engine home from dry storage, cleaned, and oiled it up from sitting for many years. Got to bring something unusual to Coolspring for display. I put some Coleman fuel in it, and a 6 volt battery for the ignition and checked for spark, and SPARK it did. I choked it through two intake strokes and the fuel came right up. Spun it twice and it was off and running, on the hard pick up Chevy bed with 432+++ miles, NICE. Stop by and see it across from STARBOLT in KK’s corral . Here is a short video of it running with the engine trucks just rattling away .
