My Ottawa Hit and Miss Engine.  She needs a bit of cleaning but after a good sand blasting, painting and the brass tags polished I expect her to run.  She turns over by hand now.  Oh, I will have to add a Spark Coil Or BUZZ coil as they were called.  But I have about a  dozen of those.  Smiley



The Engine





This is the carburetor.  The tag is too dirty to read in this photo, but it is a Holly Carburetor and the model number is the same that was used on early Ford Model T cars.

It might be the first motor (for testing) for my Steam Car.  Once all the other items are going good, I will switch to a Steam Engine (Smaller than the Frick) and build the Steam Generator.  Steam Generators are much more safer than Boilers as it is said that they will not blow up.  Wink
