Everything on that engine is pretty much the same as the 15 hp open crank Z engine, except that it has an enclosed crankcase. Those flywheels are the same ones that are on my 15 hp Z.

Is the cylinder 7 or 8 inches? Anyway, I'll need to get it home and take it apart. I will need to get a magneto. Thanks.

I never did find out how to contact Ed from Reed Engine. Do you know?

Hello, send me a PM and I'll share my phone number. (I think it's against the rules here to post it).

The compliments are greatly appreciated but you should keep in mind the area of the US you are in, if there is a "good" dealer/repair shop/whatever in your area it would be to your advantage to deal with them as freight and time are always something to keep in mind.

As far as a sponsor here on the sight I guess I really should step up, the sight has sent me several customers. Who do I talk to about this?

Do you know if the Fairbanks-Morse J flange mount magneto would rotate clockwise or counter-clockwise on that engine?

I am indebted to all of you for helping me on this one. I have to wait until Friday to pick it up and it is killing me.

Larry, it should be a counterclockwise rotation mag. The 118 and 208 are clockwise. The 346, 503 and 739 are counterclockwise.

Larry that looks like the Earlier version of carb/ fuel mixer on your engine. Like what is used on the earlier open crank ZA engines. If your going for factory correct let me know and I'll trade the correct carb, if your interested.

I won't be able to get the engine before Friday and hopefully the owner will relinquish it, then. What kind of carb did the ZC have?

I was able to get Ed of Reed's Engine phone number. I haven't called him as I am waiting to get the engine. He appears to be a great person.

DO NOT TRADE THAT CARBURETOR!! It is the original carb for that engine. Doug is right that it is the same one used on the later ZA engines, but that was also the correct carburetor for the EARLY ZC engines. That engine is 100% original as far as the pictures show. The cylinder on that engine will be 8" if it hasn't been bored oversize. It has a 10" stroke.

I appreciate your words of advice as I don't have a clue what it should be. Thanks a whole lot. I'll keep that carburetor.

I am scheduled to pick up the engine tomorrow but rain is forecasted, so I hope it holds off until the transaction is made.

Well, I'm not too sure about that carb being original, but anyway. As for that engine being "100%" original.... Minus the water hopper, radiator, fan assembly, and sub base, its just not 100% anything right now. I'm not knocking your engine by any means Larry. Its just when people use the 100% orig term, like people use the "rare" term it has to be taken with a grain of salt.
