Default Ideal Model V Info/Help

Hi Everyone,
I am brand new to this forum so forgive me if I do something wrong

I recently got this strange (and maybe rare) Ideal Model V engine. I was just curious if anyone a had any information about it. If anyone knows what the carb is or what it's from, the year these things were made, how many were made, or any information it would be a appreciated!

Here is a video I made of it:

Thanks,
Colin

I have always liked old engines. They are so easy to work on and adapt parts from other engines to keep them running unlike modern engines. I imagine years ago someone needed to keep this engine working and used what they had. If it were mine I would probably leave it as found and correct the minor problems it has. I wonder if they have a category for engines of this type ? If they don't, they should.

I meant to say, I wonder if at engine shows do they a category for farmer /poor man home repaired engines ?

At first i though the mixer was a early Jacobson mixer witch is a engine of similar size , but now i look closer its a early aftermarket carburetor for a model T ford , that carburetor is probably more harder to find than the engine...

Sounds pretty good there. Here is my Ideal on the mower. I took this video a few years back when I first got it. It needs some tlc and a throttle control. Good luck.

Thanks for all the info so far! I didn't expect this much response!

EvilDr235- I totally agree! They tell such awesome stories!

Ron Davis- You are right! I would never have thought it to be a model T carb. After some research, I think it's a D&B Harrington carburetor! Thanks so much! Those are some nice pieces BTW I didn't know they made 2 sizes. Is that the original carb on yours?

Tim B- Nice video! One of the first ones I found after I looked this thing up!

Mine seems to be kind of an odd-ball. Both valves are side valve.

Couple of questions:

-Does anyone know:

-How rare these thing are or how many were made?
-What are the numbers that are stamped into various pieces of the engine?
- HP rating?
-Year of production?

Thanks!
-Colin

These engines were supplied with Tillotson carburetors as follows
MS-10A carbs from 1927 through 1928.
MS-10B carbs from 1929 into 1930.
MS-10C carbs from 1930 through 1933.
Seems there was some overlap in the year 1930. I have no idea how many were produced but they are not really rare. Scarce, when compared to say a Briggs FH, but not totally rare. Very neat, and heavy, early engines. They are completely out of balance and jump around like crazy when not bolted down to something in the 200# range. When I first started mine it was on a base consisting of a couple pieces of 2 x 4. I grabbed it to keep there from being damage when it fell over and durn near electrocuted myself with the plug wire. Thrilling!

I have one like that too. Definitely don’t see many like it at all.
