Theres still a few engines like a superior and a big continental engine made by fairbanks morse that are still in old engine sheds around the area. We would like to know the history of this engine.

Here are some in progress pictures of my Clark 40 hp taken early this year. It has since had all plumbing made & installed, new 10.00X20 tires & new head gasket. It is now running on propane & is inside its building. I still need to address a timing issue - it fires too early. Work will resume In the spring.

My 25 hp Franklin OCGL, it came off a oil lease in Ohio in the early 1970s. Went to East central Illinois, was overhauled and was shown in that area till I got it a couple of years ago.

ID:	183595 1898 15hp Reid #545. All serial #s match with original cast Iron tag. No weights on the flywheels or plates on the cylinder. Check out the exhaust pipe on the side of the cylinder. Maybe a one of a kind?

I have already posted a thread on the 20 HP Single Valve Simplex but this picture was taken just a few minutes ago as the engine was running. This was the first engine I have run in 2014.

Yes John it starts great. I have figured out what pressure to set the hot tube at and where to set the needle valve for the fuel. It does not need the starter motor anymore, it is easy to hand crank. I don't know the "official" way to start it, but I tried starting it the way you would a two stroke and it works. I crank it in the forward direction until it bounces off compression, then crank it in reverse. It almost always fires when it hits compression again and takes right off. I sure would like to see someone else start theirs though to see if I am on the right path. I hope to show it a bunch on the Texas-Oklahoma-Louisiana-Arkanas circuit this summer.
