Part three in a five-part series: Restoring an Amanco 2-1/4 HP Hired Man

Pride and Joy
More Pride and Joy – Another of Peter Rooke’s Amanco eng-ines: This engine is all original including the planks it is mounted on. It has been on a local farm near Notts, England, since 1914. It even has the nameplate of a local supplier! This is slightly earlier than the Hired Man in this series, as the magneto is parallel to the gears rather than at a 90-degree angle with a beveled gear wheel.
