Alpha De Laval

| September 2005

I just bought an Alpha De Laval Type VW, serial no. 75128. I don't know the horsepower, as this is not stamped on the tag. I do not know if this engine is complete. Does anyone know if there are any springs in the governor? It has a Wico Type B1 (008773) magneto, which is rusted beyond fixing. Also, what year was this manufactured? It has a long subbase that the engine was bolted to - for a milk machine?

If anyone has one of these or information, please contact me. Marvin M. Smith, 301 S. Nebraska St., Hooper, NE 68031.
