Default Barn Fresh!!

Here is a 4 1/2 HP Fuller & Johnson that I just spent about 30 hours on to make it look barn fresh. Runs great!

Did you ever expect anything less of a good looking high quality engine built by those fine craftsman in Madison?

Funny how your trying to make one look barn fresh when all those other guys, (not me), are making them look better then new. I like the antique look. I'm building a home made tractor and it won't have a speck of paint on it.

I am not quite shure if I am getting smarter or lazier but of the four engines I have restored since the first of the year only one is a complete repaint and that is a brush job, complete with a couple of small runs to make it look original.

Mr Dorece,

You might want to check the roof on the barn. Looking at your engine it appears there might be a few leaks up there.

Is this barn fresh? or outside in the rain fresh?
Just joking with you a little.

It does have the old antique look. The main thing is that you are happy.

Cool.. I'm done painting engines too. Of the last several I have got running I have not painted any...

Kinda looks like there was a fire pretty close to where the engine is sitting.....

Here is my barn fresh 5hp KA Fuller. It was a pumping engine, I have the pump and the original cast iron base, that's all going together nicely in its original work clothes

I use about 1/4 linseed oil and 3/4 turpentine. I haven't treated this one yet because I want to wash it down with mineral spirits first. I just brush the mixture on and let it stand for a day and then wipe off any that is still on the surface. I use turps. instead of mineral spirits with the linseed oil because the turps. mix dries in a couple of days and mixed with mineral spirits it takes a couple of weeks.

Here is my latest "barn fresh" engine. It's a 1920 Litscher Lite generator engine.
