Description: (Sorry for the poor quality photos. I have more that I can email) Time to clear a few things out and make room. This is truly a unique engine. This is an original Otto Portable. Everything you see in the photo is original. To my knowledge, there is 3 of these portables known.

The tank mounted up high holds about 4 gallons of water. The tank is connected to a blower (looks much like a forge blower) that is mounted on the side of the engine. A belt runs around the flywheel rim and to the blower pulley. Air is forced up through piping into the tank up high and cools the water. Its a very primitive radiator. The tank, piping, etc are all original and in excellent condition with no breaks, rust through or serious deterioration. It makes this a one of a kind show piece and very interesting.

I'll soon be traveling to southern California and can deliver along the way or can transport and drop off in CA.

I haven't ran the engine but know that it was running a few years ago. Mechanically it appears in good shape. Its more or less "barn fresh". It does have a clutch pulley on the engine and comes with the original Lonergan oilers. I have a splash shield for it but its not in the attached photos.

Otto engines aren't cheap and this is among the rarest of the builds of this vintage. This is NOT A CHEAP ENGINE. So, if you're serious, feel free to contact me.
