Photo From shearing sheep to making ice cream

Just finished up with my new project. It is a Stewart "Little Major" 1/2 horse air cooled engine driving an ice cream maker. The Little Major was originally built to run one sheep shear. I still have the gear that hooked it up to the mechanism. It is really an unusal (to me anyway) engine as it runs counter clockwise, and is a ported engine (the exhaust exits out the bottom of the cylinder) It is equiped with a bosch mag and it runs super. There is no adjustment to the mixer other then the choke. I had to build the fuel tank, it is as close as I could get to an original. Thanks to the help from some of the fellows here I was able to calculate the diameter of pulley that I need to make it run 60 rpm at the freezer.

Haven't made a test run yet, but if we get a few nice days may have to give it a whirl. Hope you like it. The pictures didn't turn out the best....may try a few more later.

Best Regards,
Dave Beck

Jeff,
You just grab the little flywheel and pull it through usually starts on the second pull.
