  1. If it is steel you could drag a magnet around and may get lucky. Or maybe a vacuum with a fresh bag. Look through the bag after.
  2. There is only one member beside me in MA. Do some research. I cannot disclose the name.
  3. I sold everything I had to a person in this O&R forum from Massachusetts. It had many carbs and parts. I think in all probability he has the diaphragms or has some one making them. The carbs are fool proof basically. The only part that wears is the diaphragm. Look up a guy I mentioned in MA and ask him if he still has a diaphragm or working carb. You can go online and look up maybe some diaphragm material if you search Google also. Run a Want Ad in the For Sale ads. Good luck Nice looking generator there. I have one but well used. Bob
  4. Here is my son enjoying running around the Cuttyhunk Island harbor with the small O&R outboard I had. It used to push my 3 kids and and 2 of us easily everywhere.
  5. I had to do that many years ago to my outboard motor. Good fix.
  6. I just got this today. It may be late. I lost power for 3 days here and just getting caught up on the internet. Some are not labeled correctly. Many desirable in here. https://www.auctionzip.com/auction-catalog/Model-Airplane-and-Engine-Auction_KXA6XG2UPG Collectable engines on Auction Zip Any of you near Greenville, OH may be interested in this auction.

  7. Looks nice. I like the blue. I still have mine here. .May part with it. Bob
  8. To anyone interested in my huge lot of parts. The material is still available to anyone that would care to buy it. Make an offer and you can haul it all away. You can pack it up and ship it to where you want to.Otherwise it can lay there till I am gone and off to the dumpster.
  9. I found this picture of a Orline bicycle motor. The owner said it ran up to 20mph. I would love to have that when I was younger.
  10. I also have an OK Herkimer 60 ignition. I have a lot of motors from the early 50's into the 60's. Maybe 150 of them. I would thin them out except it is the same situation of selling and shipping which is a pain as you have seen me say here. I always liked the O&R utility motor. If there was an adaptive electronic ignition adapted to it I think it would have been an interesting motor for today's old timer style RC model aircraft. It would be lighter without the flywheel. It would be also quite a conversation piece. Bob
  11. I have a good O&R 60 and a not to good O&R 23. The 23 was a very good motor. They made a 23 redhead that was pretty powerful. Bob
  12. I know true collectors of old models of cars, boats, trains, and planes any even antique toys value articles more if it has the original packaging in good shape. Some people in the model plane and toys will just buy an empty box. O&R goes way back to WWII with their famous ignition aircraft motors. The cylinders on the compact is a blown up in size image of the old ignition motors. I still have a couple of those. They show up on eBay at times. Bob
  13. I believe all the small items would fit in a USPS box. Maybe the boxed items like new tanks and housing parts would take some space. Bob
  14. In my case I have so many things around that I need to move on to a place where someone would appreciate it. I just hate to see it dumped and lost forever. I just do not have a shipping motivation. Bob
  15. We have trucking companies around. I have heard other people talk about shipping by truck and heard extremely high prices. Years ago I shipped 3 big boxes of magazines that were 2 piles side by side per box. It was as high as my hand truck handle. It went by FedEx to New Jersey. It was $75 shipping about 20 years ago. It could be double that now for all I know. Problem is these would not be shipped in cardboard boxes. I think it would be wood boxes for these. Also I never weighed all these items either. Some would have to have there cutting blades removed like chainsaws and hedge trimmers. PITA for me with a lot of handling. Bob
