Schleicher-Schumm Engine is Find of a Lifetime

Last surviving 10 HP Schleicher-Schumm slide-valve rescued and returned to original condition.

All Schleicher-Shumm engines were shipped with two sets of slide-valves and wear plates. The valves, by nature, wore badly during constant use, so when the seal of the valve became bad, preventing the engine from working properly, the spare was put on the engine, and the worn valve was sent back to the factory for refinishing. In the spirit of an authentic restoration, Wayne also made two sets.
