Default Which Briggs & Stratton Model F are these

I'm cleaning out dad's garage and came across these engines (and a few more, yet to be photographed) they gotta go, but before they do I'd like to know what they are.

http://s587.photobucket.com/albums/s...%20Model%20FC/

The album shows three engines, the model Y is a given, it's the twins that I'm having trouble with. Digging around on the internet, I came up with a Model FC as these have 4 lugs on the bottom while earlier ones had only two. But the oil breather and the intake "manifold" seem to be nickel plated and possibly the rocker arm too.

The 2nd engine is close to complete. I think I know where the second flywheel is, the 1st one is mainly a carcass--no piston. Also a ballpark idea of their value. Are these so far gone they will barely bring more than scrap or are they diamonds in the rough?

Last question; Are these 2cycle engines? I figure if the gas is in the crankcase, there's no good place to put the oil.

thanks for your help.
Les

Looks like FH slant fin engines. They are 4-cycle, there is an oil pan that goes between the base(gas tank) and the bottom of the crankcase. Definately not too far gone to consider scrapping! Somebody out there would like the opportunity to put these back together. If nothing else theres some good parts for other engines being brought back to life.

300-500$ on ebay(togeather, if you offer shipping) At shows and anywhere else expect half that, as e-bay prices tend to be realy high, especially for FHs.
