Default Antique gas engine PLANS

Does anyone know where I can find complete sets of antique gas engine plans? I just purchased plans from Leon Ridenour in Tennessee to make Henry Ford's first internal combustion engine. I have never built an internal combustion engine and thought why not choose Henry's as my first.

However, I see a lot of pictures in these forums but not a lot of plans. I have a large format scanner and copier so original plans would not be an issue.

Please help out the new guy!

Thanks,

Chris

The book Gas Engine Construction by Henry Parsell and Arthur Weed has a whole section on building an engine.

Lindsey Books offers a set of plans to build a gasoline engine, as well as carrying the Weed and Parcells book (as reprint)
