Could be anything from A for Amanco to Z [FB model Z that is] hehe!

Great stuff Matt - good luck with both of them.

I would love a small 1.5 or 2hp little american open crank but I shudder to think of the kind of prices these things will go for nowadays. I could have got an Amanco way back when I had the old engines for about £300. Probably a bit more now LOL. I always likes the Fairbanks Morse little Model Z. Reasonable price and seems to be a few for sale in the states. Wish I lived over there! Wink Bit different price here I'm sure.

Regards
Matt

For a amanco hired man you could get one for around £500 ish but you do see some people asking over 1 k for one and thats just stupid .

fb morse z is a nice little engine , a headless one is what you want like jonsey has .
