Olds number 2
This is my second Olds engine. Never thought that I would be starting another one, but at

the 2012 "Days of the Past Old Time Power & Equipment show" in Washington Crossing NJ
gentleman by the name of  Walt Hartel, who I never met before, gave me the complete
set
of castings, gears and prints.  Talk about generous. This engine is another Paul Breisch
casting set. It is a 1/2 scale, Olds, water cooled, four cycle, hit or miss, spark plug
ignition, gasoline engine with 1-7/8" bore and 2" stroke. Drawings call for Flywheels to be
8" in diameter. (These are just a little bigger.)  Completed April 2015. This engine built to
the lower compression dimensions per the drawings.
   This engine does seem a little more on the gentle side when it fires then my first Olds.
