Default Another one found in the wild...

Hey guys and gals there are still some out there! I drug this home today its very rough but I think it would be a neat display all put back together. Tag says 3hp FW 305424 Hercules I assume? The flywheels look very odd the diameter is very small but they are very beefy and fat. Is there many around with these flywheels? Also got the original cart and a cool water pump which is a Barns pump and on the other side says Hercules and Barns together. Here are some pics. are there many of these set ups around? The only thing that I need for the engine is a set of main bearing caps. The bolt holes would be 2 3/4 on center and the cap itself should be 2 3/4 wide. Any help on the caps would be appreciated.

I have several Barnes Pump Catalogs and have 2 Barnes Pump Units. I sold a Barnes mud pump with an Ecomomy 1 1/2hp (with small flywheels as well) several years ago, but still have the beast...

Here is my 3hp FW:

This 5hp unit shows up at Portland, IN
