Default 2Hp Lauson Model F Type ZA fuel tank location

Hello All,

Where is the fuel tank in these engines supposed to be mounted and where is the filler located? Does anyone have pictures or a drawing of an original tank?

Thank you!

Joe

This engine with out a picture should have a cast iron carb. with the lever on the bottom. If it is this model, the gas tank is between the skids under the engine. The tank goes past the base of the engine at the crankshaft end. The filler is at the exposed end of the tank.

Kevin,

Right now the engine has a lunk mixer. How difficult are the original mixers to find? Do you have a pattern for the tank for this engine? I'll get some pics for you.

Thanks!

Joe

By Lunk mixer is it a true lunk mixer? Lauson used a lunk style mixer on early engines. This style has a cast iron top half and a brass lower half. If the engine has this a lunk style Lauson carb. Then the gas tank is round and mounts on top of the engine skids.

I have no idea if this lunk is original to the engine. it is a true Lunkenheimer mixer The engine belonged to a friend of mine, we camped together for 10 years at my home show before he passed away. The engine was a pile of parts when he got it and I wasn't involved in the initial assembly. I'll get pics of the engine.
