Hi all;
It's been 12 years since I posted the pix of the Speed-well engine and it has just been sitting in the shelf gathering dust so I decided it was about time to restore it. I will be posting some pix in a couple of weeks but I am on down time right now due to upcoming eye surgery. I have a little more info on this engine but no new history.
Over the past two years I have restored a 1904 single cylinder Rambler car engine which was used to run a water pump in a gold mine in California and spent a considerable amount of time fine tuning the two cylinder inverted Racine Pierce engine, both of which I showed at the 2018 'Boo show.

More later

I remember seeing this engine at Dick Geyer's show back in the early 1970s. Glad to see it's getting a little TLC after all these years!
