Default What's your winter project for the 2020 season?

I'm working on this 4 horse Famous. Needs a new fuel tank and would like to get trucks on a heavy cart made up.

Please feel free to share your projects. 2020 is a big year for many shows around North American.

2 HP Leader-Domestic, installed in a lake side pumphouse in 1911, removed in 1999 by me via barge! Mechanical restoration only, it is great original condition, lots of striping and paint visible under the grease.

Here you go. A couple pics of the Ohio, one of the Domestic and one of the Stover. May paint the Ohio too. There's no paint left on it or I might consider leaving it as is. I need to get a repo brass tag for it. The axles and wheels I am using are off an old Eagle silo filler. Got the pictures turned around finally.

I picked up a 1-1/2HP or so Waterloo contract engine at Coolspring in June and have started painting the individual parts while the weather is still warm. It is missing the name plate(seems like a lot of the contract engines are). My friend claims there must have been a bounty on them. I have most of the parts rounded up and a new igniter made for winter assembly. It is #94645 and I remember seeing a 1914 casting date on the block during cleanup. Anyone have a name plate lying on a shelf that would work ?

Standard 5 HP. I had a base made for it, and have a tank on order. Some minor repairs, skids, and so on will complete it.

I'm going to try and finish my 6-HP Warner. Have all the parts now and it will be painted, Someone screwed it all up with red spray paint and there is no original paint left. Will need to build a cart for it also. Thanks....
