I have had this little engine for about seven years. It runs great. I have never found anyone who has seen one. The only tag is a small brass tag that says: "WICO Type FGA, U.S. Pat. Nos. 1,307,342, 1,579,331, 1,803,543, 1,904,308, No. 33,958, WICO Electric Co., Springfield, Mass., U.S.A."

I would like to know what make it is, how old it is, what it was used for and what its current value is. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Brian House, (606) 312-2568; (606) 864-0719 (evenings).
