John Deere E 1-1/2 HP engine

Here are pictures of my John Deere E 1-1/2 HP engine. I paid $50 for the basket case. I took the pictures Sept. 28, 2014, at the Old Timers Reunion in Xenia, Ohio.

I had to find the muffler, magneto, gas tank, many gaskets, igniter, gas line and square nuts. I found much help restoring the engine from an article in Gas Engine Magazine, September 1985, written by Stanley Bessent of Goldthwaite, Texas. A most informative article.
