No, the photographer was not drunk, nor was the camera tilted when the pictures of my Lauson were taken--the engine runs in this position!

Note the carburetor and air cleaner in the vertical position.

This Lauson is a type RSC-541 and specially made for the Jari walk-behind sickle mower. This engine is well made with insert bearings in the connecting rod, ball type main bearings, Zenith carburetor, Wico flywheel magneto.

Rumor has it that Jari mowers with this engine are used on very steep hillsides and operated by persons having one short leg. This rumor has not been confirmed. Kidding of course.
