I also have a Waukesha ICK 61 cubic inch, 25 HP yellow flathead
4-cylinder. It should be a common engine, with many industrial uses
and was also used in railway speeders. However, mine is all
aluminum (most were cast iron) and it was military specification,
which I have been told was a B-51 Bomber A.P.U. I have a 120-volt
generator for it. I need an aluminum cylinder head and jug. I would

My last engine, made by Titeflex, has an Eisemann LA-1 magneto.
The carburetor is a Zenith; the governor is a Pierce. It is missing
valve covers, but turns over and has compression. It is a 4-stroke
with overhead valves. The gentleman I bought it from said he
thought it was from an aircraft generator set. Titeflex is still in
business, but I can’t find any information at all on this engine.
