Here is the first run of our Hercules JK after languishing outdoors, but undercover for a lengthy period of time.

Very nice. My second engine was one just like that that I purchase for $10.00 in 1974. I still have it.

This was my first go-around with the model J series Hercules. It amazed me how different this engine was from all of their other offerings, yet it still retained some key design features of the earlier series. Like the rest of the Hercules engines I've messed with, its design was well thought out and built with consideration for ease of service. It did set me back a bit more than $10 (even adjusted for inflation) though :-)
