Left and above: Brian House’s unidentified engine with a WICO Type FGA magneto.

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
