Picture shows my 3 HP Associated throttling governor kerosene engine. When I bought the engine it needed an ignitor, tripper, magneto, crank shield, fuel tank, rocker arm and several springs.

I just finished making the trucks. I was lucky to find the cast iron wheels in the local junk year. This engine seems to be in exceptionally good condition.
