Similar to a Maytag?

    Above and right: Don Crader is wondering if anyone can identify this engine with a WICO Type F magneto.

  • WICOTypeFmagneto.jpg

I am looking for any information on this engine. It has no markings except on the magneto, it is a WICO Type F. The engine has a centripetal governor that controls the spark (like a Maytag 92), and steel flywheels, 10-1/2 inches in diameter. The engine is about 10 inches long from the top of the head to and including the carburetor. Don Crader, 398 V.Z. Co. Road 3407, Wills Point, TX 75169; (903) 873-8717; (903) 253-7714.
