This is a photo of a 5 HP C.H.E. engine. It was manufactured in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, July 11, 1920. This engine is a little different than most four cylinder engines. For some reason, the manufacturer made this engine to run in the opposite direction, so it runs backwards.

It was free and complete when I got it. Restoration consisted of one winter season. The engine was originally set up to run on gasoline.

With a couple of changes, I now run it on propane. It's a very nice running engine.
