WANTED HELP WITH PARTS & INFORMATION ON
Missouri Iron Works Engine Kansas City MO. 8 HP #3
I have a rare Missouri Iron Works Engine built in Kansas City MO. I need help to get it back to original. It had a lot of parts that were not original when I bought it at an ILL estate sale 2014. I have removed them as the photos show and this is the original parts that are left. It has the name cast on the top of the cylinder along with the serial #3 stamped on the front of the block and head and the rod and brass rod bearing. It has a 6 1/2″ bore and 39 1/2″ flywheels. Their is a No.8 cast on the top of the cylinder just ahead of the name so I am guessing it is an 8 HP. I need to know if their is any others that exist. A photo or old ad from early advertising or catalog would be of great help. I need info on the correct fuel mixer. It has the original fuel pump so it must of had an overflow type carburetor. I have the original needle valve assembly which is same as used on the early Bauer and Witte side shaft engines built in Kansas City MO. It is missing the lever the runs the fuel pump and the governor weights the bolted to the cam gear. It also looks to of had an ignitor in the head. Have no idea of how it tripped. Their is nothing in the big yellow book on this company. If you have seen one or have any info on the company it would be of great help. Thanks in advance! G.
