9HP Tray Cooled ALAMO.


















I have a maybe rare 9hp, horizonal Alamo on steel trucks. It has a spark plug on top, traypan cooled, and a teardrop shaped governor of some sort on one of the flywheels. The serial number is in the four digit range. It needs restoring and I plan to start soon. If you are interested in seeing it I can email photos. Here are two photos of the engine and one of the serial number plate. As you can see on the plate its serial number is 4230. When I found the engine it was 2.5 miles from my house. It was parked at a now abandoned farm 70 years ago by a cousin. Its original owner was my great uncle Andrew. He had died in 1922. After a year of work I have removed the piston. The wheels were missing but I have found replacements. The cart will need restoring first. The man who had parked it told me something went wrong with it and the engine was not repaired. My guess is the carb was broken off because it sat on top of the cylinder. As you can see, a lot of work is needed. If you have any questions I will be glad to answer them. -Turner
