Alamo Empire Runs and Looks Like New

Here are a few pictures of an engine that I recently restored and thought I would send you a before and after. I purchased the engine in August 2015, got it running, took it to a couple of shows, then tore it down, cleaned all the parts, and removed all the rust and old paint.

It is an Empire built by Alamo Mfg. Co., Hillsdale, Michigan, and sold by Empire Cream Separator Co., Bloomington, New Jersey. I finished the restoration and the new cart in February this year (2016) and I intend to take it to shows this year. The engine runs like new! I’m really proud of it!
