Rescuing a 12 HP Olds Engine

12 HP Olds engine lives on after disastrous accident.

1910 12 HP Type 6A Olds Engine Hopper and Front End
Ole Elden’s circa 1910 12 HP Type 6A Olds gasoline engine’s hopper and front end. One of the selling points for this model was that, with the obvious exception of the flywheels, most of its moving parts are hidden. Visible here on the left side of the black exhaust pipe is the carburetor and a small reservoir for starting gasoline. The small pipe and hand valve at the very bottom at left are for draining the gas tank, which is cast into the base of the engine. There is no fuel pump.
