  1. Well that's a new low for those, I hadn't seen one sell for less than $51 before (and that wasn't new condition either), it goes to show some sellers don't bother to research the value of what they are listing. David
  2. I'm sure I've posted this somewhere on the forum before, here is the parts list for the Orline Utility Pump with O&R Type 217 engine; David
  3. Is that the one on ePay that had no pictures, did it really only make $28? Absolute steal if you got it for that price. David
  4. Welcome Mike, there are several different O&R pumps that all seem to use the pump & impeller, I have three different ones here & only one where the impeller is intact, I should really get some measurements from it. This is the impeller remains from my Petro Chug-A-Pump with some measurements (pictures taken years ago). David
  5. The same thing happened here, I made a test stand and it's had an engine displayed on it for many years now. David
  6. The French have a lot to do with why almost all spark-plugs are Metric. https://web.archive.org/web/20120320135004/http://www.asecc.com/data/plughistory.html David
  7. Metric bearings on an American tool, that seems a bit odd to me. David
  8. I've seen three pan head screws* fitted to several Model J engines and my Model F engine, they are shorter so they don't stick out above the four mounting points, for when the gearbox is attached to a metal plate. *Part no #26-47, three fitted according to the parts list. David
  9. Well it can't be earlier than August 1960 as the gearbox models weren't available then (plus no mention of Ultra before Compact anywhere), I suspect the original purchaser/owner re-packed it with that newspaper. All the paperwork should have dates in the bottom left corner too, like this from the August 1961 engine price list. David
  10. They seem to turn up fairly often, I have saved pictures of at least 50 of them, there are two here as well neither are in great condition. David
  11. The converted mower is looking very nice now it's finished, did the blade fit the O&R or did it require modification? David
  12. Anyone buy this really nice early Model J with the original box? https://www.ebay.com/itm/203038832058 I rarely look at US listings these days as they sell before I get a chance can see them, but do occasionally check the completed and find all the interesting stuff. David
  13. Welcome Phil, there is lots of information on these engines, a carb repair guide and lots of other tools that are powered by O&R engines here; https://myoldmachine.com/forum/74-ohlsson-and-rice/ I recommend either starting a new thread in the O&R section or asking on a similar thread, if you need any help or assistance with your restoration. David
  14. Will carb cleaner cause any damage to the plastic, I would hate to find out why these tanks end up damaged the hard way. David
  15. I usually try cleaning the tank filter using the largest sized glass syringe I have, after first trying the other methods of cleaning, i.e. your cleaner of choice & using nuts etc. to loosen the crud. I'm guessing they don't have "stoves" in Arizona. David
  16. No idea without trying to look inside with my cheap borescope camera, will see if I get a chance at the weekend. David
  17. I'm surprised it's the tank is like that, it almost looks unused, I guess it got used once, they left the gas in & it never started again and then got abandoned in it's box. The 410 in the model number seems familiar, I'm sure @pmackellow's Dyna-mite version is also a model 410, but mine is a model 300 (only difference seems to be an extended tank filler). David
  18. Very strange that they didn't put AEP on it anywhere, it should date to somewhere around 1977/78 from the original advertising. Thanks for measuring those parts. David
  19. Did anyone on here win it? I wonder if it'll be another six years before we see another one. David
  20. Same here, mostly back together but I haven't got round to adding the progress to the thread. Rain has stopped me cleaning some parts outside so I've been working on vintage HP counter that's also been in bits for too long. I forgot to ask before, but what are the approx dimensions of the two trimmer guards? and are there any markings on the trimmer head to indicate if it was either made by AEP* or bought in? Some pictures of the trimmer head may also help @Brian Lynch with locating the lost parts for his Groomer trimmer. David The title of both threads should really have AEP in it.
  21. It might go faster but I'm not sure any of us could actually fit in one, unlike the mini-bikes or open toby cart. Shame they cost as much a normal car too. David
  22. Looks very nice, but I can't help thinking if it was used as a mower the bare aluminium would corrode very quickly. David
  23. You did well to get that for the price, the seller could easily have got more if they had let the auction run. Do the instructions mention anything about the make/type of pump that fits on the back of the generator? David
  24. Unfortunately I can't tell you if it's original or not, my manual was missing the relevant pages (engines type 13B426 & 13B427), did the engine look to have been apart before (it would have been noticeable with it being painted all over)? Will have a look to see if I have any other later engine diagrams that may show it. David
  25. Another one of these appeared yesterday on ePay in France, definitely not a work of art in this condition (needs a lot more than some body filler) but does show most of the parts used in the pictures. It had 9 days left when I saw it earlier today, but just noticed it has ended early before posting. https://www.ebay.fr/itm/143639800300 David
