The brass plate on this United gas engine reads:

United Engine Company, Lansing Michigan USA. Type A, 2 HP, Ser. No. 117429

Above is a 'before' photo, taken when I acquired the engine. I restored it to this condition in the summer of '98. I bought the engine very near where I live, in 1994. The truck for the engine I bought from an engine show in Saegertown, Pennsylvania, at the summer show of 1998. The wood for the truck and tool box is curly maple. The engine was almost complete except for the missing muffler. The engine starts easily and runs well.
