I need a gas engine for various equipment around the homestead.

This mobile gas engine will help a lot.I had an old Montgomery Wards lawn vacuum which has no compression and no spark. It also does not have the bag attachment so it is not very useful as it stands.But it does have a nice platform which holds a gas engine. So I stripped it down and cut some parts out of the way. Then I mounted a working gas engine on it.Now I can wheel my gas engine over where I need it, connect a belt and run it.Future upgrades will be a clutch pulley, weight on the front and a throttle on the handle for easy control of the engine speed.Thanks for watching.

I need a gas engine for various equipment around the homestead. Instead of putting separate engines on each one, I am making a mobile engine station that I can roll over, hook up and use easily anywhere I need it.


Maintaining too many gas engines just ends up with problems. You have to remember to keep the gas fresh in them all. And you have to keep them all tuned up and change the oil often. Eventually you can get behind and have more work cleaning out carburetors and gas tanks.


I am simplifying our homestead life by reducing the amount of gas powered equipment we have here on the homestead. This mobile gas engine will help a lot.


I had an old Montgomery Wards lawn vacuum which has no compression and no spark. It also does not have the bag attachment so it is not very useful as it stands.


But it does have a nice platform which holds a gas engine. So I stripped it down and cut some parts out of the way. Then I mounted a working gas engine on it.


Now I can wheel my gas engine over where I need it, connect a belt and run it.


Future upgrades will be a clutch pulley, weight on the front and a throttle on the handle for easy control of the engine speed.
