  • Hit and miss engine

This IHC 10 HP portable hit and miss engine was purchased at the Bob Ogorek Auction in November 1999. Mechanical work was done by Scholl Engine Shop: Re-grooved the piston and installed new rings; honed the cylinder; tightened wrist pin; refitted bronze bearing at the crankshaft throw, ground valves; re-worked fuel lines and water pump drive; sent out the ignitor for rebuilding. Engine starts and runs great now. Owned by C. R. Merritt of Weston, Georgia.
