Default 10 HP Hamilton engine

I did some fine tuning on the Hamilton engine today and had a test run. I tightened up a few things and made it run a little more quietly. This engine originally came from a farm near Florence Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati. It was built in Hamilton, Ohio.

Beautiful engine and beautiful runner Chris. Do you know who pulled it from the farm? Just curious of lineage of ownership of the engine as I may have seen it in the past but don't remember it. Very sweet engine!

Thanks for the comments. I'm sure you've seen it before, probably several times. Terry Tanner originally found it on the farm.

Thanks Chris. Yes, I remember seeing it at Terry’s but didn’t realize it was the same engine. The area where that engine came from virtually has no farms now. It all subdivisions, large homes and commercial development.
